Special parking lot next to an old junk yard.

One of the motels my company has us layover at  has secluded truck parking in the back. This motel is in between a TA and a Petro truckstop. There are a few drivers whom park their VERY nice largecars at this parking lot to protect them from scratches, dents and other bad things that happen to trucks while parked at a truckstop. One of my favorite working trucks was parked their last night, so I took some pictures. What I like about this truck is that  its a 359 8)  and it has just enough shiny stuff to make it look good, yet it dose not have that over done look to it. I wish I could have caught this picture 1/2 hour earlier when the sun was a little higher :? , maybe. I have learned the suns position can make or break a picture. Next to this parking lot there is a old scrap yard that has some old and VERY old trucks rotting their, so I grabbed my new toy (camera) and went over their not seeing any fences or no trespassing signs  :? . It was worth the chance of getting in trouble because I saw some old trucks (1930s-1950s? :? ) that I have never seen before. Like an old Dodge that looked like 1/2 coventional and 1/2 COE  :? . My knowledge of trucks of this era is limited to say the least. Anyway back to the photography by the time I got to these old trucks the sun was behind the California coast mountain range and the pictures I took all came out VERY dark :cry: .
