Acreage meadow...
a sapling through a wreck's
open windshield.

986: Missing Part.

[At one point my Dad had been given a 1952 Chev in bad shape. He had planned on getting it running but eventually we found that it was taking up too much space in the backyard. So one weekend we towed it out to a retired friend's acreage. The friend loved to tinker and fiddle with old cars and would never pass up taking on someone's old wreck. I'll never forget that place with old cars strewn every where. It was like a retirement home for motor vehicles.]
