Bodie Car Graveyard

Photo of rusty cars at Bodie State Park CaliforniaAlthough Bodie's heyday was in the 1880s, people lived there in modern times too up till the time it became one of California's state parks in 1962. So obviously this was well into the era of the automobile. There's a few rusting hulks laying about Bodie, such as these in this photo. The paint is long gone on these cars, but the bodies themselves appear to have only surface rust. They don't build them like they used to, do they! I remember when my dad bought his first Japanese-made car, and my grandfather making fun of him about how thin and light the metal was. I can hear him saying "What's this! A sardine can?"
