A wonderfully rich, colourful capture Dianne. I bet it could tell a tale or two about life in the paddocks of days gone by! (I bet petrol was cheaper then !!!)

Poor old thing. The motor registration authority wasn't very diligent about having the plates returned when it became un-registered.

I can see the ad now..."One careful owner"!

It has rusted perfectly for its surroundings. Kind of sad, isn't it?

Maybe that should be HAY DAY for a farm truck.
Love the colours of passing time.

What a beauty. I see you have the same addiction as I do to old cars and rust.

A wonder full find. Unto dust shall this truck return.

That is the best rusty old car I've ever seen Dianne. What an amazing find.

That 1946-47 Ford truck could be restored to original with lots of work. It is great "raw" material for a project, but looks great in your photo just as it is.

Great shapes, super colors!

Oh I love this one, as I am especially fond of rust. This truck has rusted well.

Makes for a photogenic shot if nothing else. Great texture.

This is a beautiful old truck, Dianne. The combination of the red rust and the green 'rut' is totally gorgeous.
