    There's a place on the Crawfordville Hwy up in the Big Bend area of NW Florida where someone has set out a bevy of old Ford trucks and various other 1940's and 1950's cars to "Rust in Peace," as the sign says. These are just playing around shots...Shattered Dreams was made in this rusted graveyard.

    That FORD logo is great. Was it completely rusted over or was there moss on it too? Really really great shots!

    As long as that one cylinder with the missing plug isn't full of water & corroded, I'm willing to bet that with a new condenser, some clean oil & gas, and 30 minutes worth of tinkering, she'd come to life.

    No Flywheel and all but two cylinders full of water....I think this old flatbed, flat head Ford is done for.

    Okay... might need a couple of hours then. Those things are never done for, but some do need a little more work.

    Looks like the plug head is snapped off.
