A Rusting, Rotting Charger
I’m talking about a Dodge Charger R/T, manufactured sometime between 1967–1970. These days, this particular Charger is rusting and rotting in place, at the point of a gas station’s arrowhead-shaped property between two tines of a fork in the road.
Apparently, a restoration of the car was attempted — half-heartedly and/or unskilled — one or more times over the years, a project which was finally abandoned. Now, the Charger’s rust-spotted, painted metal and compound-covered, light grey body is just a decrepit eyesore for drivers-by to enjoy.
As an admirer of American muscle-cars, I’ve passed the old Charger a thousand times (or more) over the years, thinking often that I’d like to stop and take a closer look. Finally, today, I did it, while armed with an Instax Mini 90 camera and color instant film…
