A couple weeks ago as I was driving the countryside in the Palouse looking for barns, when I noticed the barn that you see in the image at the top of this post. When I stopped to check it out, I made a discovery of several old cars and trucks on the deserted property.

I love cars from the 50’s and 60’s and have owned a Corvair and a couple of Mustangs from the 60’s. As I walked around I saw two Corvairs sitting side by side in the weeds. They were pretty much in disrepair and in various stages of rust. Still they were of interest to me as I thoroughly looked them over and took pictures. This was a fun experience for me and I hope you enjoy the images.

One thing I have found in the Palouse region as in many other farming areas is that the farmers rarely get rid of an old truck or piece of farm machinery. There is a great opportunity to see and photograph these old vehicles if you have the desire.

  1. Hi! I don’t know you but I was just wondering if you might be willing to help me with something. I have been obsessed with the Palouse for a long time, and now I want to go on vacation there. But I can’t figure out how to do that, since the place where I want to go is farm country (like in your pictures). I don’t know if there’s any place where I can lodge in the midst of these hills, away from any cities. I don’t even know which cities are close to this kind of scenery. Do you know of anything? I would greatly appreciate your help.

    Thankyou!

  2. I have a chance to buy a 69 corvair for $200.00
    it has been garaged for 15 yrs. Totaly straight
    little bit of rust on floor board in front, passenger side around the door handle. All the chrome is there, interior is in very good shape, the dash is alittle faded. The engine is complete, it just don’t run. How much is it worth? I have allways loved corvairs specialy 65 ragtop!
