Route 66 is always good for classic cars, such as this 1959 Impala found in Gardner, IL. I love the way it appears to float above the road from this angle, like something out of The Jetsons.
I had reason to walk down Springfield Avenue from Neil Street on my way to work one morning. Between Neil and First there are several small auto shops and a small selection of old sheet metal. I had long been wanting to photograph the Bug on top of the shop in the background, but I needed something to pair it with; otherwise, it would be a pretty boring picture. Luckily for me, this old Chevy pickup was available on the morning in question.
