Old Dude





I pumped up the reds a tiny bit to show all the rust.

Love it, Dianne!

There is something so beautiful to me about the look of rust. It's so raw.

Grrrrreat photo!!!!

X to you and the gang!

I agree with both comments. Also, seeing an old pick-up truck is just so Americana.

Rust is a fine ruby accoutrement to this classic truck, itself a fine shade of red and in remarkable shape given that it is probably 60+ years old. I believe this old beast of burden is going to be restored so it can not work but instead relax at car shows in its retirement!

I see a hard worker who has given his all for his entire life...who protected his family and provided for them. Now, his working days are done, and he is going to live the rest of his days relaxing.

I posted a picture of an old Ford pickup in my Barn Charm post. He was a grey haired beauty, too. :)
I love old things...maybe because I, too, have become old.

I wonder if it's being taken to be restored or forgotten. I sure hope it's restored. :)

I would have pumped up the rusty color too. It's perfect!
