      Is that a rock on top? I can't imagine that thing's in danger of blowing away.

      LOL Clampants, you know inspiration when you see it!

      The rock is among many indignities that this poor vehicle has suffered at the hands of those who did not have its best interest at heart. Parted out by scavengers and shot through for target practice, an inglorious end to a once-fine Econoline.

      And yet it will carry its dignity long after those who have slighted it have left this mortal coil...

      A very nice picture, love the contract in color between the mountains, the sky and the color of the old van. It looks like there may some salvagable parts left on this one too, that rear bumper doesn't look too rusted at all!

      LOL liambmitchell, this thing had been pretty picked over. And lived in and shot at and set fire to, and rained on. The desert is a beautful, yet crazy, place.

      Why would they have left it at such a beautiful base?

      Where is it? I'll take it to the scrap yard where it belongs and get some green for it. :-D

      You’ve captured the colours and tones beautifully, an evocative shot, which raises the question of how and why the van was abandoned. Well done.
