Despite the baron grape vines, I headed out to Long Island Wine Country to sample the local flavor with some friends a couple of weekends back (good thing they stock reserves). We stopped from winery to winery along RT25 and took advantage of the beautiful Spring day, sitting outside whenever possible. Lucky for me, there were a bunch of cool old cars scattered along our route. Like this toothy 1951 Ford Pickup we spotted in the Bedell parking lot. More hidden treasures after the jump.
Yes, I know. It’s a nasty old Nova. Even worse, it’s painted a hideous shade of banana peel yellow. But there is something cool about the weathered sedan, planted firmly in front of this abandoned, and seriously dilapidated, house siting on the side of the road. The Nova’s old school American Racing wheels appear to have grass growing through the rims and, much like the house behind it, the body sits at an obvious slant. Check out the rubber ducky in the window.
