Of the handful of vehicles remaining at Bodie ghost town, this 1937 Chevy coupe is the most iconic. It sits in a field behind the town's post office and men's lodge. The car's grill remains shiny while the body of the car has dulled to a maroon hue from decades of rusting.
This old cart, complete with all four wagon wheels, has endured over a century of Bodie's harsh weather. Bodie lies on a high desert plateau at 8,400 feet elevation, exposing it to strong winds and freezing nights, even during summer months.
Riddled with bullet holes and dents, this old truck sits in south-western corner of Bodie. Its windshield is one crack away from shattering.
Parked outside of one of Bodie, California's dilapidated houses is this green pickup truck. Bodie used to have over two thousand structures, which supported a population of over five thousand, but most of these were destroyed in fires or collapsed after residents deserted the town.
The view through the windshield of this rusted work truck shows Bodie's Miners' Union Hall and IOOF (Independent Order of Odd Fellows) Hall. Tall grass grows where its seats once were.
An unidentified car from the early 1900s sits outside one of Bodie's better preserved abandoned houses. Long gone are its tires, seats, and anything else not metal.
