Found this abandoned old truck scattered around the desert today on my walk. I found the hood about 20 feet away and dragged it over and tried to put it in place...:-) I guess you could say it's been in a state of transformation!

Great shot, Jill! And going that extra mile to drag the hood back in was a good idea. Well done!

What amazes me is the narrowness of the cab compared to the body. So good of you to restore its hood in its rightful place Jill! Great shot ~ I love it!
