A 1939 DeSoto is slowly picked apart but retains both style and form. Living in a local junkyard it has been marked ‘save’ and is temporarily pardoned from the crusher. Note the sexy split rear windows and incredible reddish tone on this beauty.

    • Saved forever. Such is the lure of photography. To freeze and preserve that which remains largely undetected, and in many cases is only there for a moment.
      Thanks Terry and happy thanksgiving.


  1. I think the car has incredibly sexy lines. My husband loves junkyards but I have no desire to trail along. He is usually patient but sometimes not when I am engrossed in photo taking whenever we go someplace (other than junkyards). It would just seem like a win-win situation if I took my camera to the junkyard with him. Thanks for the inspiration.


    • That is a good question. Seems to me that people would love a retro update on a beauty like this. Since it was your idea, but my post inspired the question, we’ll split the profit after Chevy takes their cut. That would leave us about $11 each.
      Have a good day Paul.
