Somehow I don't think one would find a '35 Packard in a junkyard today. This relic of bygone days was covered with surface rust, but was relatively complete and quite restorable. Let's hope it was! All photos clickable to enlarge, as always.
These four 1959 Cadillac photos were all shot in a car "cemetery" that contained only Cadillacs. It's no longer there, having been cleared away for a parking lot in the late 1980s, but it was one of my favorite places to go sharpen my photographic skills. The cars ranged in condition from almost turn-key to sad parts cars. There is an elegance to a Cadillac, or a Lincoln, or a Packard, that transcends condition however. They may be down-at-the-heels, the makeup might be aging but, like Baby Jane Hudson, or Norma Desmond, a true classic is a classic forever.
