Day 73

Day 73 - Country Drive

There is a field out in the country behind an abandoned home that has a line-up of abandoned cars. I love this field and have visited it frequently for fodder.

I'm especially intrigued by this 1941 Chevrolet Special Deluxe four-door sedan. The first time I saw the car, I didn't know why there was a connection but I loved the car and admired it's beautiful shiny hood ornament. The original license plate was placed on it in 1956, but it's most recent tag is 1972. I'm guessing that is when the car became mangled in an accident.

I was a little saddened to see the "oversize load" flat bed semi behind the cars this morning. This most likely means they will be all loaded up and hauled off.

I came across my parents wedding photo from November 7, 1943. My dad, a bomber pilot in WWII, was home on leave.

On closer inspection of the photo, I connected the dots. My parents drove a 1941 Chevrolet Special Deluxe.


  1. Love the texture on the old chevy.. and now you know the connection, that's greyt!

  2. So cool! Thanks for sharing the photo of your parents and their Chevy! Classic.
