“It Ran When I Parked It” is a title looking for a subject… well, OK, there are probably lots of subjects. Any vehicle that stands abandoned the last place it was parked is a potential subject.
And there are literally thousands of subjects at a place in northern Georgia called “Old Car City.” It’s a junk yard on steroids: 35 acres of rusted hulks, supposedly more than 4,000 of them.
Most of the wrecks are from the 1970s ad 80s, and are really not very interesting visually. But then there are also hundreds of models from the 1930s through the 1950s, and they do offer all kinds of interesting photo opportunities.
I spent the better part of two days at Old Car City a few weeks ago, and I’ll be posting the first batch of photos from that expedition over the next week or two.
