    Nice work. I see you're continuing to have fun on your walk-about.

    I seem to remember seeing photos or perhaps postcards of this place, possibly from decades ago. The vehicles at that time were pristine.

    I was a bit taken aback at first look at them now.

    :D even visited Albuquerque (10 minutes). Nice!

    About the Cadillacs, look it up; they go from complete black to complete white to complete pink to completely covered in graffiti. Visitors are encouraged to put their tag on the cars (I did too of course).

    Nice pics. That second one looks like a '59. In pristine condition, those are worth a nice chunk of change nowadays.

    interesting! not seen anything like that before. Nice shots, too. I think with some off camera lighting and at dusk you could get some really cool shots here.

    One of these days I think I'm going to do an old Route 66 photography trip. Alot of the old attractions are there still, but in varying stages of decay. I've driven Route 40 many times, but no camera in hand, and alot of it parallels the old Route 66.

    What a hoot! I didn't know such an art installation existed! What great colours on the graffiti'd cars.

    Did you take a pic of your tag?? (#3 seems to be zoomed in, so I was wondering it that's where you tagged it)

    thanks

    :thumbdown: what were you thinking!! :lol::lol:


    thanks. I would love to own one of these (not having the front end burried, that is)

    ha, after the visit, I got into my modern rental car...not much roaring going on...:blushing:

    true. this was around 3 pm. And it was so hot, I could only stand it for 10 minutes. But I'd love to go back at dusk.


    I heard he doesn't live up to the hype...(lol, no idea who he is)


    glad you like it. No, the close up is not my tag. You can see me giving Banksy a run for his money here:
