We drove down a country road
And found yesterday
Sitting in the yard.
What a beauty! Can you just imagine how it looked when it was new? It came from nothing and then was a beautiful useful something, now it’s nothing again…but an American eyesore.
I do imagine it’s new beauty. But I really felt like where it was today, and how the people who put it there, was an honor. It really had a beauty in a different way. Quite dignified in it’s age and decline. (Though I readily acknowledge what you mean by ‘eye sores’ all over!!!!!!!)
Thank you! 🙂
that is amazing.
Beth it was on a back mountain road, sitting there so regally. It just looked so perfect sitting there.
Past its prime, but still cool.
So very cool Van. 🙂
driving on country road to the past…you can find a lot of flair of the past somewhere in nowhere!
That is so true!
Love it. Sad it was abandoned, but I’ll bet that car has a story to tell.
When I see cars like this I usually create a story in my head. Someone was loved, left, and the car has never been moved since. There are many variations and details that differ in each story. 🙂
Haha, Colleen, most of my cars loo like that, just before I pass them in. all my old rust buckets would’ve fill the paddock ….thanks for the trip down memory lane….
Ha! 🙂 I love those old cars Ivor. What a way to travel. 🙂
I do hope that lots of children have great adventures playing in the yesterday you found!
Me too! My dad used to take us to his friend’s country property. There was an old abandoned car on it that we played in every time. It was fantastic.
I love stories like this!
Colorfully set against the green of the field it looks like a fabulous a piece of installation art! Love it!
It caught our eye, made us slow down and “ooooooooo” over it. 🙂
Yeah it is! 🙂
It really was Lynn.
This reminds me of the rusty Studebaker I found in the weeds up in Buckeye Valley school area, back in the spring! I always admire an old car still showing shiny silver part while not ashamed to show “a little age on it!” 😉
Maybe I can learn from that no shame part Robin! 🙂
Oh, I let my “age” show in my blue veiny legs and in my hair. . . But my youth shows up like yours does in being playful and enjoying life 90-95% of the time.
