The Doors #13: "Deliveries in Rear"

"Still Working After All These Years"
Raleigh, NC - February 2009 (Click to embiggen)

I always love to see a well maintained or restored antique auto, but when said auto is still being used to do productive work it somehow means more. And there's no truer case of this than this 1942 Ford Delivery Van currently employed at the Seaboard Ace Hardware store. Part rolling billboard and (presumably) part delivery vehicle I stumbled across it one chilly February afternoon sitting in the parking lot of the store. That I'd photograph it -- from multiple angles -- was a given, despite the less than ideal mid-afternoon light. It's not a flawless restoration, there are a few details that could be touched up, but for a working truck that seems appropriate somehow.Violence Unsilenced

look at the door handle, and the shapes and lines... so different to the now.
