1948 Chrysler “Art on Wheels”

October 06, 2011

I was in Sewanee earlier this week to photograph a job.  When we were done, my friend Henry and I took a lunch break and scouted out a location for another job.  As we went outside, there was this beautiful car!  The light couldn’t have been worse, but I had to take a few shots of it.

Just look at the wood on this beauty.  This is a Chrysler Town and Country, and it is huge!

The craftsmanship was so intricate and precise.  It is sad to think that this is what we used to produce here in the United States not that many decades ago.  I couldn’t even imagine what it would cost to build something like this today (or what it would weigh).  I am glad to know that some people are committed to preserving these beautiful vehicles so that we can see where our roots originated.  I’m also glad I had my Nikon with me at lunch so I could grab a few shots on this beautiful fall day.
