1956 Plymouth Savoy

1956 Plymouth Savoy

In the countryside of Niota, Illinois, about a block from my girlfriend’s parent’s farm, there’s a small, lonely wooded area that used to be a homestead. The house, barn, and sheds are all collapsed in on themselves, and the area is littered with old, abandoned cars – most of which are in still good enough condition to be restored, or reborn as hot rods.

Amongst the old, rusting, and forgotten automobiles is this powder-blue 1956 Plymouth Savoy that is literally "wrapped around a tree". The motor was removed a long time ago, allowing enough room for a seed to take root, and an old sturdy tree to flourish where Detroit iron once powered the abandoned Savoy decades ago.

Taken in Niota, Illinois on March 25th, 2009 with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28.

The RS4 came down a duplicate of a ski soar then spun quite a few situations on an ice rink right before coming to rest in the center of the ice. Following quite a few minutes to make it possible for the assembled media and friends to examine the car, the RS4 climbed the ski soar and parked around the major. The ski soar was an homage to an audi industrial from 1986 exactly where an Audi climbed a ski soar in Finland to showcase its top-quality traction thanks to the quattro drivetrain. The RS4 became available to European consumers in mid … Read More
