Thanks for the comment rafinmelb. #2's my favorite also. I couldn't get on the property for a better angle on the first shot, and had to use the 12x on it.

That second shot is fantastic. I love it. I love the angled perspective and the way the dead trees halo out into the blue sky.

Don, I didn't mention it before, but as for as the tractors, #2 is my favorite. I believe it a good bit older than the the tractor in #1.. Wonder what the year and make is? I am really surprised at the condition of it and wonder why someone hasn't restored it. I know there are people who would love to get their hands on it, and also the one in the first photo. And don't forget that '56 Ford. I agree with you and Ted, that "56 & "57 was the years for Ford and Chevy, with the '57 Chevy being a prize in my area.

Pretty sure it was a 56 Ford Fairlane. My parents had a new one with the 312 Thunderbird V8 !!

Thanks Richie, Jerry and lesmore. I'm thinking of starting in one corner of my county and driving as many country roads as I can all the way across, just looking for old stuff like that. I should have quite a collection by the time I'm done. Probably take a couple of years at least.

Nice shots. By the way, the Fairlane is a '55. '55 had round parking lights. In '56, the parking lights were rectangular. Side trim was similar but different in '56, also.

These relics of Americana are disappearing much too fast. This old Chevy sat beside Hwy 65 in the Arkansas Ozarks for many years. I took this picture on the weekend about a month ago with my FZ10. I went back the next weekend with a wide angle lens on my DSLR to take some shots of the truck, and itwas gone. I can't describe the sadness I felt.

Hi Lucky,

Thanks for looking and comenting. The Ford could certainly be a 55. I don't remember the little changes that were made year to year, just the body style before it changed in 57.

You should post your pickup pictures on a post by it self. More folks will see it that way. It is a shame that these old relichs are disapearing but I hope that means someone is restoring them. That would be great.
