We Buy Junk Cars

This beautiful 1956 Ford Fairlane sedan sits atop a shipping container behind the fence at 3 Rivers Metal Recycling on Brooklyn Avenue in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I thought it funny that a place that recycles junk cars has a valuable classic car on display, rather than a wrecked junker.

The weather was cold and windy, and it began to rain lightly as I was making this photograph.


Update: In early 2016, 3 Rivers Metal Recycling closed down and the 1956 Fairlane was removed.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
