A summer week in Cape May #29

By handlerstudio  
This old and very rusted Ford station wagon is parked behind the fire truck....note the surfboards on the roof rack...thought it is hard to imagine when this might have been on the aside, in New Jersey, cars need plates on front and rear....I am also including a reel to roll up fire hose...and a dispenser for either fuel or oil....tomorrow, one more set of photos from his house, garage and yard. All still shot with my iPhone8.

Grateful thanks to Ian (dale) and Mike (Karuma) for your UAs for the firetruck set.

Bit of work still to do on these.
A bit of Duct Tape, some filler and paint she'll be fine.

In need of some TLC perhaps, Peter. Nostalgia at its best.

I can imagine the situation ...

Guy acquires these vehicles for nothing
He's going to renovate them and sell them on for a tidy profit

But in fact never does anything
They stay there for ever until he moves on
And then they are taken to the scrapyard

Nice shots again Peter

One only needs a rear end plate in Pennsylvania--- and it you get a new car, likely you will need to get an up to date plate---no new stickers now a days!
