Wastelands of Suburbia

A place where the cast-off ephemera of the last four generations comes to rest, and is discussed fondly....Like junk, or the injection-molded minutiae of history? Welcome home...Junkyards, yard sales, roadside oddities, thrift stores and more-your memories are deep inside the box, so keep shaking.

RIP The Big Old Car...

Well, I guess we all have to go sometime. My beloved 1994 Mercury, AKA Auntie, has gone to the big junkyard in the sky. A rusted out torsion box was the cause-unable to be welded, she was parked for the last time. In a final act of defiance, she refused to start (dead battery) for her funeral procession to Sibum's Auto Parts in Stroudsburg. It's a shame, especially since the picture you see here is pretty much how she looked on her last ride, sans hubcaps of course (soon to be available on Ebay).

Auntie had given me many a good run-from home to Mechanicsburg and back, picking up surplus at the Naval Assist Facility, down to Philadelphia for shows at the TLA, into Jersey and NYC for various events and meetings. I will miss her deeply but life goes on, and soon the circle will again be completed.
