Photo Hunt #165: Old/Loud

24 Feb

When I saw the combination of themes for today’s Photo Hunt, there was only one thing that came to mind. I remember that old cars are loud. Nowadays, they make cars that can be so silent, you hardly hear the motor running.

This is an old picture I took almost 2 years ago today. This is a drive by shot of the car in the junkyard. A few days ago, we passed by the same junkyard and the same car is still there, in the same spot. My husband said that’s the car he would like to restore someday. Nope, before you ask, my husband doesn’t know a thing about car restoration 🙂

    That would be a great car to restore and it works perfectly for both themes. Happy Weekend!

    PS After I shot the old deeds I stuck them back in my old desk where they’ll probably stay until my daughter goes through my stuff one day.

    If this car were to be restored it would really be a beauty, although the motor would probably still be loud. You did a great job with the theme for this week.

    It almost looks like a sculpture of a car rather than just an old junked car. Love your combo of the themes! Happy weekend.

    hey, cool.. I did not think on this ideas le.. Yeah old car are loud.. That’s why normally, in KL, we can only use our car for about 10 years, then need to change a new car already…

    I would love to see it restored. It would be as beautiful as it was new.

    Interesting photo and fun accompanying comments on it. My first thought re old cars: many of them were major gas guzzlers! ;b

    Great sight! I like the rusty colour of the car against the clear blue skies.
