Barn Find Cars

Here is the third and final installment of my Barn Find Car posts.  There were just too many strange/odd ball and interesting photos to keep to just one post.  I have spent a lot of time over the years photographing beautiful and pristine cars without a scratch, issue, dent, or fingerprint.  Throw all of those photos away friends.  Barn finds are where it’s at!  Tell me these photos are not more interesting than a perfectly restored and excessively expensive classic car?!  These cars were part of the landscape some already halfway down in the ground.  Some had trees growing through them. Others had impressive levels of alien lichen growing on them as if we were actually living somewhere wet and cool. The amount of dust and dirt on each of these cars is palpable.  (The smell was extreme. I took one for the team to get some of these photos for you friends.)  Hipsters today spend crazy amounts of money and time trying to mimic the patina on some of these cars.  There might not be much value to most of these cars but they were amazing “models” for my camera.  This was an experience I will never be able to duplicate and I hope you enjoy seeing the results.

  1. Very impressive like old house ruins which attract people especially since the Romantic and always allow space for imagination of the past and future because they are no longer in use but not useless at all.

  2. Great “effects”. Though I couldn’t help thinking of those who bought those cars back in the day. Maybe their first car? The first ride with kids? A picnic in the woods with a checkered tablecloth on the grass?
    How many stories could those cars tell?
