History RUSTY ART - PRE 64 CARS & TRUCKS

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by HOTRODPRIMER, Jul 8, 2020.

  1. We have all seen vintage cars and trucks in fields, behind barns and junk yards, some of these relics make for some interesting images captured with a artistic eye.

    What images have you seen or saved?

    I had heard that the yard was sold and the crusher was to show up on Monday so if I needed anything I needed to go on Saturday.

    Brenda started taking photo's of things that interested her as soon as we arrived on that rainy day excursion in what now is a housing development but at one time was a big junkyard on the outskirts of town.

    I was able to salvage a few items from a Ranch wagon to use on our car while Brenda roamed through the bushes, briers and mud taking photo's, the two that stood out to me and look like art before the sky's opened up and the lightning got scary. HRP

    DSCF0458 (1).JPG DSCF0458 (1).JPG I took this picture while on the World's Longest Yard Sale last year. There was no one around so I didn't get any closer but I sure would like to spent a day or two roaming around this hoard!

    This is why our state is called the "Evergreen State".

    ^^^^^ don’t worry, it’s probably photo-shopped.......:D:eek:
     
  14. I'm sure this one is not photo-shopped. HRP


    The Oregon Journal published this Dec. 20, 1939 photograph, of automobiles being used to stop bank erosion on the Willamette River. Photographer and historian Ben Maxwell worked for the Journal. The photograph’s caption stated that while the government was building revetments (reinforcements made with rock and wood bulkheads) for some Polk County farmers, the owner of the pictured property had built his own with old cars.

    Before Euro American settlement, the Willamette River was a complex system of braided channels that naturally migrated over time. As early as the 1870s, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) began making changes to the river in an attempt to alter it for commercial and social needs. To make the river safer for boats and easier to navigate, the USACE pulled snags (submerged trees and stumps), built crude dams that blocked flow into side channels, and dredged to make the channels deeper.

    Because the simplified river channel caused more erosion to the river’s banks, threatening farmland and developments, the USACE then built revetments. Beginning in the 1930s, the USACE implemented the ongoing Willamette River Bank Protection Program, building roughly ninety-three miles of revetments along the 187-mile long river. The USACE also built thirteen dams in the Willamette River basin for flood control, navigation, irrigation, and power generation.

    Hey Danny, I believe I also visited that yard when I was working at the Nuclear plant near Seneca. It was fun just walking among the relics. Every thing was for sale, whole vehicles or parts. That was several years ago.
