This 1960 Buick LeSabre sedan rolled off the assembly line the year I was born. You can see the "jet-age" styling in the simulated twin-jet nacelles up front and the delta fins out back. When I moved down south, I thought I'd find a lot more old icons like this one.

They seem to be disappearing faster than ever. Already, I've made mental notes to go back and shoot an old vehicle only to find that it's vanished. This one was sitting in a field off of old Savannah Highway a few winters ago though probably long gone by now.
