FORD (1928-19310) — Ford Model A, the successor to the historically successful Model T, was built for only four model years (1928-31), but sold nearly 5 million units in that short time. One copy — still barely surviving — was discovered by Peter Hubbard for his Junkyard Dog collection.

Abandoned Car of the Week

The 1955 Chevrolet was a turning point for the manufacturer, the first successful Chevrolet with a V8 engine. Though Chevrolet had produced another car with a V-8, the 1938, it had remained in production for only a year. The '55's looks, power and engineering made it a critical success. This copy lives in an overgrown field in eastern North Carolina. (Photo by Jim Meachen)

Abandoned Car of the Week

The Datsun (later Nissan) Z-Car captured the hearts and pocketbooks of customers in the 1970s who desired a great-looking sports car on a budget. It was just the ticket. This mid-70s Z-Car — either a 260Z or a 280Z — probably delighted several owners over the years, but now lives in abandoned retirement in woods in eastern Tennessee. (Photos by Jerry Brown)
