Cranbrook Ghosts

1951 Plymouth Cranbrook. Another barn find at Big M, John had just trucked it in that day from some farm in the valley. It was a beat up, rusty old bomb, with almost all of its chrome gone. These are the left and right front fenders, just behind the front tire. I like it’s delicious near illegibility, the way it had a chance to age without the chrome, so there’s new patina on top of old patina. Total darkness, lit with the Protomachines flashlight.
