- Artist Notes
- Last fall (2008) I was on a trip looking for new material. As I came over the lip of a small valley, I noticed a glint in the woods. I slowed the car to get a better view. What awaited me when I finally walked onto the field was almost beyond belief. Every where I looked, there was another old car, the feeling that came over me was like walking in an old graveyard, filled with trees and markers. While I took many shots that day, this Ford seems to be the best representative. This 1930-31 Briggs bodied Model A Ford, can be identified because of the wood framed body. Ford normally used Murray built bodies that were steel framed and are far more common to find these days due to the fact that wood tends to rot. Once the wood is gone, there is no support for the body, and they collapse into a pile of steel. Given all of that, this vehicle is a wonderful addition to the collection.
