Saw these FROM the road, technically...but always cool to find an interesting junkyard!  It was closed, so pics are as good as I could get from the fence...

I wouldn't have recognised until I saw that smart one here in the UK a couple of weeks ago, but isn't that a 1960 Edsel?!

I believe so, yeah!  Edsel Ranger

Pretty sure there’s part of a 70s Vette on top on this trailer too...not 100% sure - I’d like to have a walk around there and see what I find!

This pulled in today while I was working at a Hobby Lobby. Factory Hemi, power steering, brakes and windows. I needed to take a break anyway. 🙃

Stumbled across this bunch in a parking garage

Bet a production company’s setting up to film something - whenever there would be a bunch of cool cars parked in the garage near me the pink or yellow filming signs would appear not too long after and the bossy interns would start yelling at passers-by for walking on their set

Glad you caught one free and in the wild.  They don't appear to have a sterling reputation for reliability-from what I've read.

A surprise to see this thing on a wet weekday autumn morning:

50405604591_fb41755420_b.jpg

1991 Buick LeSabre by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

Appears to have been in the UK since new.

Also saw a very smart Citroen Traction Avant when I was on the way home tonight.

I like the second line on the tag. AMT ?

Quite appropriate for this forum.

That part of the plate generally relates to where the car was first registered. It's not local, but unless an owner changes it for some reason the plate stays with a car for life through subsequent keeprs and whatever part of the country it might end up in.

Not on the road, but in the store at Mercier Orchard in Cherry Log, GA.

This morning was maybe the one time I didn't have my phone to take a picture. We were having breakfast at our favorite breakfast place and my wife spotted a Mustang pulling into the parking lot. We walk around it when we were leaving. I think it was a "65 or '66 in black with the off white pony interior and a nicest of chrome wheels on it. The paint just short of show car and the interior was much the same. I wouldn't have parked it in a regular parking lot were everyone parks on top of each other.
