ABC Wednesday - Rusty Car

(The Wordless Wednesday post is beneath this post.)


R is for Rusty Car .......




a rusty old car in the junkyard



An old car from days gone by sits rusting in a salvage yard.

Destroyed by fire, there are no tires or interior.

There is also no roof - which makes me think it must have been a convertible.

Not sure there are too many good parts left on this one except the heavy metal frame and exterior panels.

It must have found a home somewhere - it was gone the next time I went back.





Stumble It!
Digg It!

  1. Fantastic picture. I love taking photos of old wrecks, ruins, falling down buildings, generally anything old and tatty.

  8. When I see these junkie cars, I always wonder what they looked like when they were shiny & new and what adventures they have been through. Yes, I sometimes feel sorry for these cars although all good things come to and end.

  10. I've just seen Sue's rusty door and was enthusing about the beauty of rust. These objects hold such history, it's so sad to see them outlive their life. Great subject!

  13. Neat idea for R, when ever I see an old car I wonder who use to own it, someone was a proud owner of this car at one time.

  14. Great shot, KML! Well composed and lots of character!

    I too, love old cars and trucks abandoned and sunk in fields of overgrowth, and old houses, etc. So many stories to tell...

  16. That's a nice rusty car. I'm thinking of my pink Cadillac, the super-sharped rocket lights on the back type :)

  17. I like rusty stuff on photographs, it has so much character. Very nice Kathy, as always, Anna :)

  18. Think of it this way: Underneath that rust is quite a bit of valuable scrap metal. (Kinda like 'glass half full'.)
