Abandoned Car of the Week

Chevrolet built the astounding number of 624,489 sedans for the 1956 model year. This is one of the survivors from more than 60 years ago found behind a garage in North Carolina. Prices ranged from $1,869 for a base One-Fifty to $2,230 for a top line Bel Air four-door hardtop. (Photos by Ralph Gable)


This 1929 or '30 Pierce-Arrow was discovered sitting in front of an old Phillips 66 gas station on Route 66 in Chandler, Okla. The Pierce Arrow was redesigned in 1929 to include headlights molded into the front fenders. It came in four wheelbases with a choice of three straight eight engines with horsepower ratings from 115 to 132. Prices ranged from $2,595 to $6,250, a princely sum during the first years of the Great Depression. (Photo by Jim Meachen)
