Car pics too cool not to share

It's enough to make me cry....

I've seen a few as well. This '55 is just a few miles from me. It has sat in this parking spot my whole life, slowly degrading. When I was a kid, it was a nice car with shinny paint. The story I was told was that the owner fixed it up for his wife back in the '80s, then she got sick and died a little while later. He parked it in front of his business, and it hasn't moved since, and he won't sell it.

Crazy things happen. I noticed that '55 was gone today. In its place sits a box truck for sale. I found the Chevy at an abandoned motel bout 1/4 mile down the road. :unsure:

The "abandoned" part of the motel rather concerns me, as far as the car goes. I wonder what gives? Why is that poor '55 there? I feel bad for that poor car. It deserves better.

IDK. I'm going to do some digging and see what I find. 30+ years in one spot and now it moves. Something is happening with it.
