Michael's dad drove this car into the desert and abandoned it many years ago. Now, Michael wants his dad's car back home in Wisconsin. We have plenty of people offering to help with transportation, but these people will need food, lodging and gas money. Once the car is back home, it will take lots of time, parts, and money to put it back together again. Please help a fellow wrencher bring home some memories. “The late Mark Wiley Blackburn (1955 - 1997) regularly drove his white 1980 Datsun B310 wagon from where he lived & worked in Las Vegas out to a property 2½+hrs away that he was renting-to-own in a planned-but-never-built residential area called “Meadorama”, 17mi south of Temple Bar Marina, AZ. While his body was being recovered by the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office & taken to the county seat in Kingman AZ for cremation, the decision was made by the authorities to leave the vehicle on site... ...where it has sat undisturbed ever since... It is the wish & intent of Michael Wiley Blackburn, his wife Kerilyn Blackburn, his sister Lalani Bill (Blackburn), and her husband TJ Bill to relocate & recover the vehicle from the desert & return it to Michael’s home in Hartford WI for repair & eventual full restoration.”
