May They Rust in Peace in the Ford Graveyard

Along Crawfordville highway in between Panacea and Tallahassee is a Ford Car Graveyard.  Twenty + cars dated from early 1900’s to mid are arranged in a semicircle from oldest to youngest.  My girls and I stopped here coming back from the beach in Panacea.

This is a 27 picture panorama.

Evidently, all these cars were used on Pat Harvey’s family farm. Now, they’ve been laid out to pasture to collect vines and iron oxide.

This looks like a frame right out of a 1920s mobster movie:

Eventually, all the cars will fade into the background.

The only drivers now seem to be the spiders.

This place inspires all level of shutterbugs.  Even my 9 year old wanted to capture a few.

These are the pictures she captured using my happy crappy 5 mg Windows Phone camera:
