Some of the "projects/parts" laying around the property.







Not sure what he does with this large crane, but it sure is anchored throughout the property.



Ok, this was a strange vehicle.

Vehicles that worked for a living and currently retired......for now.
















A wrecker, looks to be in need of a wrecker.





"Welcome to Fantasy Island" kind of jitney.

Transfer case in-out/hi-lo. Tobz has a unique wagon in FM that explains it pretty well.

Not just one 4 door wagon, but he had two that I could find.



He restores and repairs them, but don't judge a yard by it's junk. Here's his very clean shop.

A couple of projects he's working on.













I sure want this disc brake/rack and pinion setup.



Cool gas pump.



A cable car?



Time for lunch.



Hmmm, new project? Wonder how much? Mrs. V says no!



Guess I'll have to look at things from afar.



It was a beautiful day and I got to see alot of neat vehicles to give me hope for my '56 pickup.

Great Thread, Thanks

It's a Spar Tree, used for logging http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&s...AAAKoEBU_QYSkI

He may just have it on display

That tracked vehicle is a WW2-vintage M7 Allis Chalmers snow tractor.
