Here is a old car found in the ghost town of Shaniko, OR. Shaniko is being restored by the locals but I don't think they are restoring vehicles.



This is part of an old red barn which has since yielded its location to a light rail station and transit center. It is(was) in Hillsboro, OR.

Ya never know. That little 30s coupe may be just what some car buff is looking for.
Nice.

I found it very surprising that the tires look so new!

Classic shots.

I didn't notice the tires. Do you suppose it has a working engine in it?

Two other clues here.

Not only are the tires relatively new they've got air in them (they're not totally flat) which is surprising for a long abandoned car.

Furthermore, the ropes on the bonnet must be a clue that there's perhaps something still alive there.
