Yup, that some serious sleuthing right there. Actually, looking at the top picture, that white object seems too small compared to the vehicles that are sitting up by the house. Perhaps the white vehicle sitting next to the orange overseas container? Ot even one of the three vehicles sitting outside the fence along the drive, that blend in with the desert.

be careful... this is how the whole Wild Cherry van saga began... a guy in Illinois heard about the van from some photographer who spotted it and gave a rough idea of it. he then searched the google maps and found what he though was it and hit the road with a truck and trailer. he got there only to find a closed gate on what shows as a county road, a neighbor let him in to the limited access road. up the road somewhere he found the van sitting near the road with a tree on it. Loaded it an went back to Illinois. needless to say the owner was not amused!

This stuff drives me crazy. I know of a Patrol sitting abandoned in an undisclosed location in Colorado. It has a faded Sheriff's tag on it declaring it abandoned. I have been tempted to go after it. Then there is a local school teacher who approached my son at school (he drives the Patrol to school once in a while). She has an unmolested Patrol sitting in storage since the early seventies. She is the original owner. When approached about it she said it is just too buried in junk to get a good look at. What to do? Somewhere in Cedaredge, CO there is another. I met the owner at a car show when my Patrol was there. I gave him my number. Should have been more aggressive.

Welcome to the life of a car nut. Has the Holy Grail of Patrols ever been found; the Roy Rogers Patrol?

It has long been rumored that the Four Corners area is loaded with Patrols. They've been turning up there for as long as I have been a fan. You've got a golden opportunity...

I had thought the exact same thing! But look at the fullsize truck right behind it. Compared to it the proportions look right! Those also appear to be old railroad cars next to it, and the slight shadow that the object is casting looks right. Im not looseing hope! LOL
My next trip to Belen, (if its the right time of day) im going to drive over there and check it out! I will snap some pics of whatever it is and post them! Wish me luck! I need more parts for another truck build!!
Thats actually 2 containers sitting side by side. And you are right, that could be a Patrol! I was told it can be seen from the train tracks out in the open. Hhmmm :think: maybe there are 2 Patrols there! :shock:

I doubt they raise a fuss over an old Patrol like this :twisted: LOL
LOL, if thats it, it looks like there is a fence and gate. I will leave a note asking them to call me if they are interested in selling.

Awesome. This could be another fun past time. If I could figure out how to post Google earth photos I could show you the secret Colorado Patrol and one other in Hotchkiss, CO.

Looks like those are trailers outside the fence. Also no 2nd Patrol! :cry: that appears to be a small shed or something like that next to the containers. :cry:

I could be wrong, but this has the look of a terrorist training ground. These objects are set up as obstacles for assault training. There is probably an entrance to secret underground tunnel complex inside one of the containers. If you go, go well armed and watch for guys with strange accents.

:lol:

Those are old railroad cars, you can see the walking platforms on the top. The proportions look good next to the blue and white truck. (Im guessing its a Ford) also if you look really hard the grill on the suspected Patrol looks set in from the fenders which is a good sign!! :D EXCITEMENT!!
This is FUN!
