" BLUE OVALS IN BARNS - PAGE # 14 "
A few years back I happened upon a field of old cars, next to a major
highway here in New Brunswick. There were several 60's Mopars, and a LOT of
Mustangs. I promised myself to someday return and photograph them.
Last month I went back, and this was the only car left, a 67-68 Mustang fastback,
rotted to death. So, since I had my camera, I figured I may as well take a
couple of shots....Just as soon as I finished, I heard a yell "HO" from the roadside. So I
yelled "HO" back and strolled out of the woods - to meet a local hillbilly
with his shotgun pointed at me!
Apparently he was guarding this car to keep it from being pilfered! He informed me that this was
HIS land and I'd better get off it NOW! I wasn't about to argue, as it seemed reasoning
probably wouldn't work anyways. As I was leaving he kept blathering as how he was going to report me
to the cops, yadda yadda. It was then I realized that I should have taken a picture of that gun pointed at me!
But who knows what might have happened then! - Robin
