Out on the country road just before you enter the small town of Brownsville, Oregon you will spot an old truck sitting by the roadside. It looks very content among the trees and tall grass.
I presume it serves as an ad board for an antique shop in Old Town. I don't know where Old Town is but I believe that it might be what the local folks call Main street in Brownsville?
The Oregon licence plate that is still attached to this old truck is dated "85" -- almost thirty years ago. I take it that this is the last time the truck was driven, legally that is. I gave the exterior a once over as I felt that the truck might have been painted by a local impressionistic artist who had created patches of colors residing all over its entire body.
However, my final conclusions were that the truck's body colors were its original -- blue faded to aqua -- then painted a second coat of red now faded to a rose color. Then as a deluxe touch mother nature eventually stepped in and flourished it with golden lichens. It really is a piece of work -- a positive work that is!
I wonder what age this old truck is?
