On Old Route 66, West of San Bernardino

This circa '50 - '52 Buick Roadmaster was seen by the side of Old Route 66 last week, the pilot having bailed and trudged off toward civilization and, one presumes, mechanical assistance.

Not being particularly up to speed on '50's Buicks, I figured the least I could do after capturing this image was give it an appropriate vintage era treatment in Lightroom, so I applied one of my own custom presets. I also feathered the edges for a carelessly-used and water damaged, tossed-in-the-bottom-of-the-drawer look. For the record, back in the day, my Dad owned a '55 Roadmaster. What a tank.
