Clean Used Cars I of III

Greetings and salutations to all,

I've been missing for far too long now in all my rummaging and ramblings around and about. It's past time for me to check in again to give everyone an update on what I've come across in my travels. So, folks knows how much I do love my rust and ruined things, yes? And also how much I do so love the old and abandoned beautiful crafted vehicles of the 1930s 40s 50s 60s and 70s? Well this location began in 1931 as a used car dealership in rural Georgia a bit after the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl gripped the country in desperate times. After the second World War it was a gas station and than finally a scrap yard that eventually became overgrown and for years was closed away. Now its a photographers paradise with all the decay, history, beauty and personal stories that drive me to such madness. This is by no means a secret location and as such PM if you are interested and more to come.

Awesome find! It's sad to think that most of these beauties likely wont be restored and will eventually either return to the earth, or be crushed.

Yeah! Welcome Back - glad to see you again bc yes, have been a bit of a "ghost" as they say. Thanks for showing yourself.

These cars are *such* a physical cry from the past. They hurt my heart to look at them slowly rusting away. Such beauties in their heyday. Kinda like us humans eh? or just me? personal problems...........

Did you find a bunch of hornet nests in the cars? I always find damn hornets or killer bees (I assume they are killer bees cause I ain't gettin' too close) when around abandoned cars. I ran into a pi$$ed off swarm of something in a remote ramshackle cabin this weekend. I didn't wait to hear banjo music before I beat it outta there. Bees scare me. Banjo music too.

How do you deal with them? Is there an effective repellant for them - or is it still - RUNNNNNNN FORREST RUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNN - as the only way to deal with angry winged insects bent on destruction?

Stunning find.

Wondering what the Mustang license plate says is the answer. I'm guessing Jesus.

Excellent work mate! Glad to see you still getting out and about. I'm pretty sure I know this place, and have been wanting to get out here and see everything. There's a few similar places here in Alabama that I've been wanting to get to as well, though not quite as large as this.
