    Well, speaking of cars in back yards, here are a few of the 1941 Cadillacs my grandfather left parked near my house:

    Ah, my 2 favorites! I've converted both my Bushmasters & Armalites to gas pistons. I swore off Colt & sold my Colt AR15A2 & carbine in the 90s, when they switched to the large pins (for hammer & trigger)...plus I got tired of either converting the screw-head takedown pins or carrying a flathead screwdriver around if I need to remove the uppers. So I picked up a pre-ban Bushmaster with A1 upper and it's been my favorite ever since. The Armalite is an A4 and it's also been extremely reliable. My wife & daughter have their own AR15s now.

    Nice! Your son really looks like he enjoys his.

    LOL, must be a "Grandfather" thing...my Grandfather (Mom's Dad) used to have a bunch of Cadillacs from the 1950s on his property, until the county made him get rid of some.

    If you know where to look, this vehicle is visible from Google Earth, so it's been there a couple years. Since this location is miles from anywhere, whoever stole it and left it must have either had another vehicle to ride or walked a lot to get back to civilization.

    Not really a ghost town vehicle, but interesting nontheless.
