I love old cars, and whenever I see one still on the road I try to take a photograph. These are the old cars I spotted in the wild this year.
I met a friend for breakfast in the spring and this 1964 or 1965 Plymouth Barracuda was in the parking lot.
I was looking for things to photograph with my Kodak Signet 40 when I came upon this 1970s-80s AMC Jeep CJ-5.
My sons and I stopped for ice cream in Logansport when we spied this 1964 Chevy Impala. The owner didn’t seem to like me hanging around his car, so this was the only photo I got.
This 1973 Plymouth Satellite Custom, a real survivor, sat behind the Palace Theater in Crossville, Tennessee.
Someone who works in my office park drives this 1971 Delta 88 Royale during the sunny months.
Dig its massive tail light.
I had my Agfa Optima in hand when I came upon this 1970s VW Beetle, so I shot it.
I rented a minivan for a family trip this summer. Hertz is inside a former Dodge dealer’s, where this 1957 Dodge Custom Royal is still parked.
My brother works with a fellow whose family built Avantis in South Bend after Studebaker folded. The guy drives this one, and parks it inside the building.
I stop for coffee at my neighborhood Dunkin’ Donuts about once a week. The guy who works the drive through drives this 1975 or 1976 Chevrolet Impala to work every day.
Finally, this 1941 Buick was sitting in the Costco parking lot. It was the last place I expected to find a car like this!
Sometimes an old car isn’t beautiful to behold, such as when it’s rotting in your next-door neighbor’s driveway. Check this one out.
