WPC: The road taken

The one good thing about driving in the Mid-West USA is that it’s never too busy to pull over and take photographs when something catches your eye. Driving along in the middle of nowhere (rural Illinois) when I come across these sad-faced old cars. What do you mean cars don’t have faces? Just look at these photographs and tell me it doesn’t have a face!)

This old scrapyard full of rusting cars was photography heaven. I’m not sure what they are – Chevrolets maybe?

“Took my Chevy to the Levy but the Levy was dry…”

I wonder how many roads these cars have taken and what stories they would tell?

This poor car is blind

I’m sure this last one comes to life on Halloween to haunt it’s previous owners….

The Road Taken

Cars and stuff

Ask me what kind of car I have…. go on. Ask me.

What kind of car do you have Alba?

It’s blue and it sparkles in the sunshine, and yes, I totally bought it for that reason. The sparkly reason. Not the blue reason.

So that’s how much I know about cars… I don’t even know my registration number!

BUT, I did admire this one, sitting in the Walmart carpark on Sunday. People of Walmart are going up in the world.

I guess it’s Henry’s car (registration) and I can see it’s a Ford but it’s a great blue colour and has lovely curves, chassis and headlights (sorry for thieving Rover) I think I would quite like a car like this one… I might even be persuaded to memorise the licence plate!
