Just where do aged trucks go to die? Like the economy these days, the GMC and Mack are lost in a sea of bushes, waiting out the autumn for another rugged Maine winter. I found these parked outside an abandoned factory, just outside the city. This photograph reminds me of days of jumping over the Stevens Avenue National Guard Armory fence and spending a Saturday afternoon rummaging around the front seats of the big army vehicles. We would sit for hours dreaming about driving the big trucks and never once were we ever bothered. Ah, I guess it was another time.

Whenever I see abandoned vehicles (especially in the middle of nowhere), I always wonder what the story is.ReplyDelete
It's interesting to see these vehicles abandoned.Do you think it's possible that someone had stoled them and for some reason let them there?ReplyDelete
Difficult to know or imagine...
Hugs and a nice day to you dear friend!
Like SRQ, I, too, always wonder about the story that led to the scene.ReplyDelete
I am curious to know why they were put in that spot? I think why here? Why would someone choose to leave a vehicle right at that/this location? Is it just a random place to leave an old piece of junk? Or does something more important tie into the story? Was it a childhood place...or a place where you have been to lately? Why there?!?ReplyDelete
These trucks look like they have lots of life left in them.ReplyDelete
My first thought was how much fun kids would have climbing over and in those abandoned vehicles, and then I read your post--Yep, I can see you doing that as a child. (Maybe even as an adult!)ReplyDelete
It is strange to me too that these trucks were just abandoned like that. They look a little lonesome!ReplyDelete
Oh we have old clunkers in the woods all over Alabama! HAReplyDelete
Interesting that they are still there. I would think someone would have stolen them by now. Or at least vandalized them. Maybe you live in a more civilized place! :)ReplyDelete
Good analogy of GMC/Mack and Autumn with both waiting for the harshness of either winter storms or economical uneasiness to settle. Question, did the soccer ball under the Mack truck cause the window damage?ReplyDelete
Those bad boys look like they can still roar. Pull the overgrowth away and give them a chance.ReplyDelete
I once had a student say to me, "You know Ms. K, how when your car don't work no more and you park it in the yard?" So, there you go...ReplyDelete
And here I thought our state was the only one where dead trucks went to.ReplyDelete
I wish I owned those trucks were did you take this picture? Because i want to see if these trucks still run.!?ReplyDelete
