Anyone know the story behind this? The wreck is way down past Tal/Toll and must have made one almighty bang when it hit the ground...

Vehiculus Boganus - Native to the Blue Mountains though rarely seen this far east, usually found on the Lithgow side of the hill . . .
There are also a few to be found at MtBlackheath, and also out near the Wolgan . . .
Increasingly rare these days, possibly extinct due to changing climate (and road access) . . .

A closely related cousin Vehiculus Redneckus has also been spotted in the Red River Gorge in Kentucky.

Trundled a car at the other end of Narrowneck.( in the late 70s i think) It landed near the Psyncave.
We had a person stationed in the cave to warn climbers etc. He said that when the car came down it sounded like the whole crag was going to fall down. Before we pushed the car off you could get inside it (no seats though ) when it landed it was about the height of a washing machine. Good times :)

There was a wreck the last time I was at the Upper Psyncaive and that would have been the late '70s. There were also piles of poo. You New South Welshers certainly know how to look after your crags.

Back in the 70s (I think it was then) english climbing bums living around Llanberis would buy old bombs from the wreckers and run them over the tops of the disused slate quarries and watch them splash down into the lakes below. When the lakes were drained a couple of decades later people wondered about all the cars.

I went to a climbing area near Penriff NSW (early 80s i think)and saw dumped cars that had been pushed off the cliff and were stacked in almost chronological order in year of manufacture.

Yep, bogan vehicularis has been active even recently at the Junkyard Cave. That is when they get bored of trying to light up the nearby forest! The base below the ledge has a large collection of flattened wreck of different ages.

It's OK, as it was a cage.
If it had been a motorcycle however-
