Chevy Truck

This beat-up Chevy pick-up was parked near Bayside last week. It caught my eye, because back in the old neighborhood Mr. M- always was tinkering in his garage restoring some sleek Lincoln or Caddy. Out in the field behind his house, he had an old abandoned car of the same make that he was constantly pulling parts off and dragging them into the garage. If he was in a good mood, he'd let us kids come watch him work. I think he just like to show-off a bit. At one time he had a real fine pickup similar to this one. It was jet black, and he kept it immaculate; giving it a wax job every Saturday. I'm always impressed and even a bit envious of those classic car owners at car shows. Varooooooom!

  1. Hey Birdman this photograph is really great! It's just got such excellent elements: color, line, composition. It works in every measurable way and in some immeasurable ones too.
