This Old Truck!

Drove My Chevy To The Levy
Talk about, she's been around the block a few times! I don't know the history of this old gal but there is a story that begs to be told with each imperfection! 
Can you only imagine one?
Reminds me of Don McLean's song, American Pie! 
A long, long time ago
I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile
 And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance and maybe they'd be happy for a while  
Drove my Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
And good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
Singin' this’ll be the day that I die......
~Don McLean~ 
Bet you'll be humming that little tune for the rest of the day!
I took this photo in Old Key West, Florida on a not so sunny, muggy day. Judy and I were touring the Island when we came upon this grand old beauty. She was roped off which shows clearly in the original photographs below, however, I loved her so much that I decided to clone away the rope and wooden posts. This process took me quite awhile, but so worth it! Always learning something new with this program, Photoshop never ceases to amaze me.
Happy Mother's Day!

Love your shot! Sorry I didn’t get to see your post last week. I’ve been really ill (now finally diagnosed with Whooping Cough) and have had a rough week. Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #30.
