    This is just a complete guess, but it looks like an old milk truck to me.

    Nice shots.

    My guess was going to be a milk truck too. Did you check inside for any clues?

    It looks to me like what my dad used to call a "service truck"... you know, the kind used by painters, roofers, plumbers, electricians and the like. A service truck made... duh... service calls. As for who made those things I'd say it was likely a GM or Ford product given its apparent age.

    Pretty neat find out in the woods though. I would have had to stop and shoot a few images myself! Good work.

    Ok, now that that's solved, here's a new question: For how long after a forest is clearcut is it to be considered a forest, albeit a clearcut one? :confused:

    Nice pictures, especially #1. Is that around town somewhere?

    Check out the windshield though. On the one in the ad the glass wraps around, on the dead one it's two flat panels. Maybe just different models form the same company though.
