Here is the rest of the day.....[cheers]

A GMC 6x6 dumptruck...would hold a bit of fire wood eh?
64540

I can only assume this CJ-7 is getting restored(!) Still very stock shape(for all ya non-Jeep people!). I like how the spare tire is larger than the others!
64541

Why resto?!! This Dodge M-37 Am-blance is in really good shape for it's age. Cool would be a Cummins, 4500, Altlas3.8 going to Detroits, spinning some Boogers with no lift. Camperize it, a couple of 12 inch subs and a flat screen, hot shower.....and a beer fridge! AND no new paint!!:s30x:
64542

The dudes house was just as cool(or crazy!)....needs to finish it before the structure gets too far gone.
64543

Ah yes.....we have had a lot of FJ40's around the FIBC site lately, but none has a rear tub made from wood(mine had a fair bit in it!!). Whats funny is that the doors and roof seem to be in good shape, usually they rust with the rest of the FJ!
64544

Man....someone is gunna run out with a shotgun one day!! This Willies wagon also looked to be in very good shape...better than the Mustang behind it!:D
64545

This was leaning against someones fence....some missed the corner and took it out!
64546

Don't know my old cars to well(who cares....this is a 4x4 site!!!:D ) Anybody know what it is.....nice skirts.
64547

Saw this fancy shmancy 5 next to the grocery store....nice side steps!!WHY?
64548

Another fancy ride, also a GMC I think.....is that the gas tank on the roof!!
64549

Yet another 40.....this one showing the usual rust...except the front fenders are mint as are the doors, which, like I said earlier, usually rust too(or just my FJ!!). Has a cool old camper and Chev cabs kicking around....
64550

This is the rest of his yard!! The panel wagon needs to be on some 44's!! Note....the tree is through the bumper....growing or what?
64551

The rotary snow plow for the Whites Pass Railway. The pass sometimes saw up to30+ feet of snow which would sometimes trap these guys and the plow for days till rescued! Get out the tow strap......We got a stuck train!!
64552

The main street in Skagway....and nothing is open! We didn't come to shop anyways, just to look at old stuff and people's junk!
64553

Calling all Bob's!! Nice older Chev just parked.....better get a pic!
64554

In a town full of cool old junk, this seemed so.......cheesy and un-truck like!! How long do you think those front axle shafts would last if ya drove it somewhat hard? Waste of money.......[16]
64555

Nice clean Bronco, nothing too crazy for mods......
64556

A Scout Terra pick-up!!!:D Actually it's a Scout II with a hardtop from a pick-up......perhaps from the donor truck(note frame in front).
64557

Fresh goodies! Will have to go check next year...
64558

A CJ-7 Delivery...not sure if this is homebuilt as Jeep built SO many variations.....Anyone?
64559

Looking pretty blue...and with no motor....got no soul either!
64560

Caught this 2 door Waggie....I mean Wagoneer pulling into his driveway...
64561

Was trying to get the cool log house when I saw the 60's VW...oops!
64562

What a waste...I can't stand to see these sitting around everywhere, if I had a barn!![36]
64563

No I'm not trying to show you the dresses in the windows!! Not as small as the store in Chinatown(downtown Vancouver), but pretty damn small!
64564

And smaller yet!
64565

Someone needs to call "Ford-aholics....".
64566

This poor woman thought I was going to ask her out(like she'd be so lucky!!)......Shelley just shakes her head when I take pics with people all around the vehicle.....it wasn't hers by the way!
64567

Holy blue Power Wagon!! Cool truck....lame paint color!
64568

A tourist sign at this lookout telling the story of the trail over the pass before the railway was built.
64569

The sign for the railway....
64570

Some of these trestles are bolted to the rock face, this is one of the wider spots...
64571

The railway was built above and on the wagon road(the lower line...see the sign?).
64572

If you look carefully on the mountain in the back, you can see the rail line, almost 1 KM above sea level. That is the steep areas where the trestles are bolted to the rock.....
64573

A bit better of a view. The Whites Pass Railway....gotta be some cool pics on-line.....
64574

A mine used to operate on the high side of the Hwy(left of pic), and this contraption sent a car up and down to the lake side to awaiting barges. Tagish Lake.
64575

Our last stop looking down Tagish Lake.....
64576

Rolling...rolling...rolling...must be looking at the stereo or sumptin!:D Back in Canada eh!
64577

A unknown lake of beauty....
64578

A fishing cabin....or Silvies place(?).
64579

Wow, can't believe all the old iron up there. And those old wagon trails and railways are very interesting to hear about. Of course I am thinking "can you quad them?" :D
