The secret life of old cars 1

By mrswoolybill
The Båstnäs car cemetery is a strange place, something approaching 700 old cars piled up to save space, and quietly waiting for their one careful owner.
Walking round, it suddenly occurred to me that some of the combinations reminded me of Wildlife uploads here, of mating frogs or weevils. It gives a whole new twist to the expression old bangers.
So let me introduce you to a new niche category for the Rust Appreciation Society - Rust Porn.
First of short series...
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Moira posts porn! I'm not sure this is in keeping with the terms and conditions of the site. Perhaps someone should report you. And no adult tag either. Shocking!

'Rust Porn'GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin This could be a whole new category, like Silly Sunday. Or maybe a Forum Topic 'Is Rust Porn degrading to Corrosion', or maybe 'Exploitation of Oxides...is it exploitation if the base metal is willing'.Wink

I'm now trying to imagine the product "By Renault 4cv out of Hillman Minx".
No, sorry, it just won't come. The engines are in the wrong places and will never match up Wink

A piggy back ride but not going anywhere soon: another good shot of this automotive graveyard with fine recording of detail, tones and textures.

Ah the good old days, the chassis is willing but the suspension's just not
up to it. Tyred and in need of a rub down with an oily rag.
Nice work Moira, made a dull Tuesday evening much brighter.
