Where abouts is this mate???
As a Ex servicemen with PTSD, I see this quote in a different context
"Enjoy the war, as the peace will be unbearable"
It's in south-eastern California. Nearest town would be Vidal Jct.
There would be a few hotrodders/ratrodders that would like that car body.looks like a Model A ford?
I think the cost of a helicopter to get it out would discourage most folks. It's 5 or 6 "rugged" miles from the nearest dirt road. That's why no one else has found it. It was probably old in 1942. Guessing it belonged to a prospector or miner as I found an old mine nearby.
