  1. … but that was then….

  2. Such car graveyards make me hink of the drivers once so excited to get behind the wheel. How soon cars are scrapped these days. My own car will be 13 years old in June, and I wonder how long I can keep it going. Yet in my youth, my Dad bought a car that was already 15 years old, and thought it was wonderfu! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. My last two cars must have ended up like that – I’m never looking for new and shiny. I’ve had the current car, which was three years old when I got it, for 2 years. It replaced a Y reg and the one before that was a K. They were both still basically functional but needing increasingly expensive repairs.

  4. What a sad place for those nice shiny cars to end up. An ignominious end for sure. 😦

  5. Years ago Lady Bird Johnson, wife of President Johnson, found that sight so ugly and upsetting that she insisted that fences be built to block the view from the highway. Out of sight, out of mind? Great James Dickey poem “Cherrylog Road” takes place in such a junkyard.
