“Now some folks say it’s too big
And uses too much gas
Some folks say it’s too old
And that it goes too fast
But my love is bigger than a Honda
Yeah, it’s bigger than a Subaru
Hey man there’s only one thing
And one car that will do
Anyway we don’t have to drive it
Honey we can park it out in back
And have a party in your pink Cadillac.”

You know how I like to give credit to my wife whenever she tells me to wait for sunset or for the lighting to change or when she points out a picture she wants me to take? Well, she had nothing to do with this one. I was coming out of the gym after my morning workout and there was this 57 Chevy up against the far wall of the parking lot. All by itself. There was a small note on the windshield that said “Look and enjoy but please do not touch. So I didn’t. I just took about 10 photos from different angles but this one was my favorite. When you’re done, please go look at the color version at Photos By Emilio. It still needs a bit of work but I’m pretty proud of the processing! Let me know what you think.
…you could say that is what nature is . In this case it’s doing it’s best at decorating the wreak that has been “parked” here for sometime a clue may be the the silver birches growth rate :0)
I was on my way home from a friends house and noticed this Rat Rod which seems to be a trend here in the USA. A Rat Rod is a Hot Rod with a really strong motor and a ratty body (a sleeper).

This truck is a Frankenstein of sorts with a General Motors body combined with a Chevrolet hood (bonnet) and a mixture of parts from other vehicles.

Notice the Pennzoil oil barrel that was sawed in half to repair the transmission tunnel in true Rat Rod fashion.

It just wouldn’t be right not to take a selfie in these hubcaps 🙂
