Some south Mississippi "roadside attractions".
Hwy 11, Lumberton MS, December 2008
Are you serious?,..... or just Jealous? That was just a dumb comment,.... not unlike your signature about Dan. I know you guys are pals,... and a rub is a rub,.... but common !
Not to interrupt all the drama, but here's more Mississippi tin.
(Crappy pics, wrong time of day!)
Hwy 15, Philadelphia MS, 02/08/2010
Not Jealous, It was a Joke. I guess I forgot the "" face. I give D.A.N. shit all the time.
....such potential many years ago... it's just hard to understand the 'mindset', but maybe after telling potential buyers NO,, no one came around again...
Things that make you go,,, Hummmm ?
Ain't no "Hummmm" to it ... That there's one a'them thar UFOs!!
Seriously though, I found a Superbird parked under a cedar tree in southern Missouri back around 1983 or 84. It wasn't for sale, probably still there! Missed on one in a junk yard in St. Clair MO about the same time ... took us about 20 minutes too long to get there!
So that's where the Superbird that used to be in a big garage in Sauk Rapids ended up!
What's the deal with the 59 Chevy 4 dr flattop....that would be a great car to have!
It's got NY plates...
Rusting in my yard...
The '59 sits rotting alongside another '59 in a former junkyard/airport down the road from me. The yard's owner passed away and his son told me a few years ago he was "saving them because they're valuable".
I was able to to rescue a car from there that I coveted since I was a kid - a "Big Tail FIn" '61 Comet.
that flattop looks nice
Sad seeing cars rot away, but at least they are still around. This picture was taken in Madison South Dakota in the 1950's. A junk man paid $7.00 for the 32. He yanked the radiator and crushed it
Thanks a lot !,....... now I will think about this all day,....... (cool old picture though )
Haunting isn't it!!
I don't have a pic but I chased a 50 merc for 6 years calling and kept asking if they would consider selling it.. last call I was told that when steel prices went up they "cleaned the woods...." *%&*9k)*%^ idiots!
I've tried to buy this Dodge Brothers truck, but no go. It must be special to the guy since it's under that collapsed shed!
Cool and sad at the same time.
What are we looking at here... late 50's chevy truck? Say 57 apache?
Are you sure?
Nope not a Gm product of any kind , That there would be a dodge.
Finally got some pics of some cars that are around me, all be it crappy cellphone pics. First one has been sitting there for at least 10 years. I didn't realize until I stopped for the pic that it's an old bookmobile. Hard to see from the pic but it has 2 big lift-up pannels and a smaller flip down one. I may have to inquire about this one. Second and third are at a...I guess you could call it a junkyard. More like a guy that likes junk. He usually fools around with them and ends up selling them or crushing them or something. I couldn't get a shot of the front of the panel truck.
I must be gettig old I remember scenes like this from my younger years
Its a 57 DODGE.
Ask me how I know.....
Good guess Mike
Here is an ALLSTATE CONVERTIBLE rotting away in a pile of cow shit. Yes that is all cow shit on the ground not dirt!
You keeping tabs on it
