      AMAZING! The whole family is fascinated by this series. Thank you for sharing!

      How high are the eroded banks in the background, we are wondering?

      Are you sure it is a Bonneville? If it is a GTO I'm going to be sick.

      That front bumper looks salvagable....

      It looks like a coral reef that beached itself. Doesn't even look like metal anymore... looks like a rock formation with a bumper added on.
