Dave, I am sure you've heard this before, but you need to publish a book of these photographs. Talk to MOTORBOOKS, I am sure they'd love a whole book of these. Wow, what fabulous pictures.

Hello Doctor, I have been photographing old cars, trucks, buildings and anything that caught my attention since 1967, when I was studying photography in a local JR college, in and around Phx AZ and throughout the entire state. I have 1000s of slides and photos of interesting things in AZ, drag races in '73 in southern CA and old tractors up in Ohio in 2006. Lots of old cars and trucks in the weeds. I would like someone to see these photos but I don't know how to post them or scan them, I have a new scanner but I don't know how to connect it to my old computer. If I can figure something out I will contact you. I want to order one of your books too, but I don't have an on-line account. You take money orders? Your fan, Patrick Mitchell.

Great pics! You just gave me incentive to take pics of all the old gas stations along the old US40 (replaced mostly by I80) running from Sacramento to Auburn through the small towns, then up to Lake Tahoe. In the 1950's and 60's some of those stations were still operating and my mother knew the owners as we often stopped for soda, gas, or overheating. I can't even count how many times over the years I have taken the old..."old, old" as they call it...highway down or up the mountain, slowed down, and looked at those old stations with the intention of stopping and looking around. I just never did....but next time I will for sure.

And for those like me who love the pic of the beautiful Mt. Shasta, here's a reminder of how those mountains were created and what they still do today:
