American Pie, 8 x 10

What is it about old things that is so intriguing?  Boats, cars, houses, barns, bridges.....if they have age to them they are more interesting to me.  Is it because there is the patina of history, of human interaction, or the ability to last in a world where everything is quickly replaced?

I don't know if this is a Chevy but it sure seems like a slice of an American Pie past and it was just sitting there in a box store parking lot surrounded by modern cars and shopping carts.  How many shopping trips have those four wheels been on?  How many dreams of the good life have floated around in the heads of its many owners?

  1. Agreed. There is something comforting about things that have been through the test of time. I especially am drawn to old trailers (we were big campers). Whatever this truck is, it's a classic. I miss chrome.


Make a comment. I enjoy hearing what you have to say.
