Americana Series-Old Car In Astoria Oregon

Old Car in Astoria Oregon-Gayle Rich-Boxman 10.15 Copyrighted All Rights Reserved 2016

While showing my dear NYC galpal, Joanna Cohlan Astoria Oregon for the day, I happened upon this delight of history. Too great to pass up, so she went about her shopping while I snapped a few quick photos.

Astoria has lots of history and has been a locaton for shooting several movies, Goonies being the most famous. Kindergarten Cop and Stand By Me were two others.

Michael Jacobs I often see human traits in cars--mostly eyes, but sometimes smiles, too! Yup, this one must be from the Ozarks...

With a good paint job, that little beauty would be as good as new!

Very cool old soul. With a little bit of fresh paint and a lot of love, this truck could roll on...

A cross between antiques and art Gayle. I really enjoy old things and especially autos.

Gayle, is this old car still running?  If so, a paint job would really do it justice, IMHO

Hey "Y'all"! I happen to LOVE this paint job, gives it character! Like the ombre hair look that some women are pulling off these days. These old jalopies make me smile....not sure why, but it must be my love of things antique.

I love it.  Was it actually a car that somebody was driving, or just parked there with no ability to move?

Upon salted bane do weigh the breaths of time. God's gasp fills the moment between time and past, till our own paint does peel. We then stand naked to all the depths of time, mortal man and us. Till we feel once more lost in time, lost to the earth's moments unleashed.  To the depths of time, mere rust immortalizes us, unleashes this inner being. Till once and only then, we realize the true essence of beauty. To the one and only who we are, to grace, elegance and sense of being. In all this flake, I have come to know the true me.

Robert Vegas Bob Swetz thank you! I DID get a message that my post was removed from the group, so I'm hoping that was just a glitch in the system!!!

Curtis Van Carter WOW. I loved this. Really. I have written poetry since I was a kid...even to God directly when I was in about 6th, 7th grade. This one is quite incredible. 

"God's gasp fills the moment between time and past....till our own paint does peel." 

I even love the sound of that. Actually, the whole thing. I feel very grateful for this, Curtis, thank you!!!!

That weather beaten, straight from the farm look is very popular among the car restorers now-days. I love the patina and character it gives off.
