Chrome highlights are great! You have made a fine shot, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ray! I love the details on these old rusted out machines!
Good abstracts of these rusty old beauties, Elizabeth. Plus a great Bonnie track!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Frank! I love the rust... and Bonnie! smile

Somebody used to proudly polish all those bits, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No doubt - someone's pride and joy!
Standing the test of time!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: As they do!
Cette Ford est bien usée par le temps.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's been around a while, for sure!

Ahh - the delights of decay..
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Gotta love it!
Well you won't be able to buy "foreign" cars much longer grin
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Nope. Fortunately, I never have. My Nissan Rogue was made in Tennessee! smile

Some rather pleasing metal Elizabeth, even though it is not in best condition.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I really like the lines and typography of old cars - and a bit of rust makes it even more interesting!
Très belles prises de vue ..bravo
Bonne journée

It's funny how the chrome has lasted well yet the surrounding metal is very rusty. Hopefully your Nissan will stay pristine for much longer.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I found that odd... but I don't know enough chemistry to understand why.

Roxie better hold up a while longer! smile

This is not the new Mustang, is it? Great rust shots.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh no sir! smile thank you!
Must more interesting shots than if it had been in pristine condition.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Sometimes it works that way!
Rusty Retirement
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Like many... smile
Ford - Fix Or Repair Daily
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: HAHA! I've only had a Ford F350 Diesel pickup - and it was a tank. It hauled 3300 pounds of water (400 gallons) up a steep hill in any weather I asked it to without complaint. Every week for eight years.

Ooo there is nothing like a nice piece of rust! Well spotted!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I agree! thank you, Anne!
the corrosion stayed out of the chromed up brand, Elizabeth, well almost.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't that strange?! Thank you, Ayush!

unmistakable typography

love the grill and the patina is superb
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is - and I'm not even an expert at typography, like you are!
I just love all that rust! smile Thank you, Sherri!
Well at least that bit is well-preserved!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - that's about it!
Beautiful image and perfect choice of framing, congratulations.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks very much, Claudio!

Great find with the emblem appearing so shiny against its surroundings!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Steven!
