X/Alphabe-Thursday

 X-tremely frail truck

X is for X-tremely

X-tremely rusty, run down, decrepit...whatever!

Cracked windshield

I am amazed how you find all these old vehicles. This are a wonderful photo opportunity.

Andy said...

Nice find Camera Girl. Looking at the dashboard reminds me of how simple things were. Just the bare necessities and no electronic toys.

Amy at love made my home said...

X tremely indeed! Great picture of it and great find for the letter X too! xx

Jeevan said...

Pretty old and rusty truck! Wonder how powerful it used to be then to run around? And now become an object of photography. Interesting to look inside

It blends in well with the autumnal colours!

Nancy Chan said...

I wonder if this truck is still in use.

Revrunner said...

I'm just wondering if it's beyond restoration at this point. :-)

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

It brings back memories. I've ridden in such trucks many a mile. No seatbelts, hoping that we don't crash.

Beautiful find; it's just like one my grandfather used to own!

X-tremely wonderful old truck.. LOVE IT

Pamela Gordon said...

I love this old truck in all it's rusty decrepitness. Great find!

Darla said...

Wonderful old truck. It looks like someone just walked off and left it.

Linda W. said...

Cool pics of an old forgotten truck.

Mary Hone said...

That's a great old truck. And a very creative way to do the letter X.

Rose said...

Oh, but I do love this X-tremely. I wish our dashboards looked similar to this now. I suppose one like this would hurt more if involved in a wreck.

Kathy said...

A dually no less. I actually remember when vehicles had choke knobs on them!

Sandi said...

I think my Grandpa had a truck like this at one time. This one reminds me of it anyway!

Sylvia K said...

William Kendall said...

That truck is a good forty years past its best before date!

RedPat said...

An oldie but a goodie, EG! So much rust!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

It's beautiful! I love it. Reminds me of the one at Bala, Muskoka Lakes Winery!

Xpertly done! Great photos of a great old truck!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

What a neat old truck! Have a lovely day, I hope the sun is shining there..it just finally popped out here. I was beginning to wonder if it was going to show up this week.

DeniseinVA said...

Oh my, I am trying to imagine what it was like in its hey-day. Still quit beautiful as it is. Great shot EG!

Andy said...

You wanted to know the location of the abandon house on my blog. Return to my posting http://eycandy.blogspot.ca/2015/10/abandoned.html and scroll down to "Location" just below the photo.

X is for Xtremely in love with old truck!

Ruth Hiebert said...

That truck has seen better days.It is now useful,mostly for the photographer.

TexWisGirl said...

cute old thing.

Halcyon said...

A creative way to find something X-related! ;-)

Stephanie said...

Superb shots of these old relics. Love all the shots!

Betty said...

I think that truck has seen a better day. Too bad. I guess it's beyond being fixed up. Wonderful pictures.

edenhills said...

But it's still photogenic! Lovely old truck.

genie said...

But, oh, my goodness...the right person could refurbish it and it would be sitting in a vintage car show. I love it.

Kay said...

I agree with Andy: a nice find...and a reminder of how much simpler controls once were. I wonder how one of today's trucks would hold up with the same time and treatment that this one has seen.

Bethany Carson said...

Neat to see the old truck! It reminds me of old cars I see here and there at farmsteads and country junk yards. There's a place along the Iowa River that used to be a dump. You can see the old cars and such still sitting there when you canoe down the river.

Small Kucing said...

and i wonder if we fix it up a bit whether it will move or not

ladyfi said...

A rusted old beauty!

x extremely rusty tractor,
which is fun to look at.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

An X-tremely clever way to get around this difficult letter. And I love old decrepit things (probably something to do with being the decrepit age I am).

Jack said...

X-tremely nice old things X-pertly photographed.

Felicia said...

jeannettestgermain said...

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Old, rusty trucks are plain sexy to me. :-)
