Another group of pictures of older cars from northeast Ohio.  The focus this time is on the decay they have experienced in the – what, sixty or seventy years since they were produced.

There’s the big stuff, like no frame, engine, or interior.

Missing body parts. Missing upholstery.

Missing visibility

Missing seat covers, missing cotton padding.

And then the rust. I find this fascinating. The paint’s gone, and the sheet metal is rusted, but it’s not rusted through. Is that because it was thicker back then? A better grade of metal?

There used to be mesh, like a window screen, in that chevron. There used to be glass in the windshield, too.

Surprisingly good condition on the paint job.

Different levels of paint and rust.
