So yesterday I bought a new camera and have been practicing taking photo's. This is one of my favourites and I thought it deserved new photo's.

Not a rat, just a weathered beat up old Iowa farm truck.

Good looking beater... Looks like some of the farm vehicles around here and better than some of the road cars around here also... :lol:

That's a well used ... at least a couple years into it's life ... truck. Every "bump" on it tells a story!

I'm loving your new camera too, Nick! :)

Thanks Everyone.

Henry, I ended up buying a GE J1200, it's not overly fancy, but perfect for my level of photography.

nice looking Ford - i like the rusty parts and the backside most.

only the front "crash" on the right is too flat i mean.
There perhaps you can try, to drill the headlight and fix some cables in the hole.
Look at this i've made on a BMW Isetta:

I think, it would look better.

That's a very good idea, maybe I'll do that or add it to the next, thanks.
