International Tow Truck

There's a junk yard I drive past every so often.  It has this neat old International tow truck out front that has seen better days.  You can see it at this google map link, but wait for it to switch to street view. 

One day, I stopped by and snapped a few shots of it.  I kinda like how the shot of the dashboard came out.

Here's a shot of the logo from the hood.

A shot of the front.  Kinda looks like a dog with droopy eyes.

That rusty dash does make for a stunning picture - and that last one does kinda look like a droopy-eyed old hound dog. I'm so glad you stopped for these pictures!

I've never seen a dashboard in that state of decay.. really fascinating and the gauges are still there...

Great shots and many good details. The last one is my favourite too.
