We saw this old car earlier on Salt Spring Photos. It’s condition has not improved and it looks now like it has taken its last ride.
I admit to being a design junkie. Whether a potato masher or a Porsche, things that work and look good doing it interest me.
So I noticed this car across the street in downtown Ganges. We don’t get that many cars like this on the Island. And, actually ‘noticed’ is an understatement, ‘barely survived whiplash as I rubber-necked’ is probably more appropriate.
Then two walkers happened by, oblivious to the graceful lines of the Porsche, and in some ways polar opposites to the car. To complete the tableau, the window reflection shows an older fellow stopping and turning around to inspect the moment.

This spot is about 2.5 hrs from the Vesuvius Ferry Terminal on Salt Spring Island. (via the inland super hwy.)
