P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday #32

I am enamored of the "rusty crusty" vehicles I can find; for several years, I have photographed them and edited the images to make photo art.  My latest find is sitting in a dry field miles out in the country.  I think it's been there for decades, judging by its age, license plate and sad condition.  It's a 1928 Ford truck with a 1947 license plate.  The owner of the field told me that his grandfather bought the truck new.  I have a wide range of  images of the truck and its various parts, after spending nearly 45 minutes with the truck one evening right before sundown.  I've settled on this particular image for Week 32 of Kent Weakley's P52 and Sweet Shot Tuesday.

What a cool truck, too bad it sits in a field getting worse off. Made for an interesting photo though!

When I was a kid my cousin and I would sit in a truck that looked like this. I have no idea what kind of vehicle it was but in my memory the cab looked like this one. It is such a wonderful memory. Your shot of the truck is great. I am surprised it is in as good a condition as it is. Very cool. Thanks

What a great find. Sad that it's just out there in the elements like that but it makes for an awesome photo subject.
