The seller is offering free postage so can't complain really.

Landy missed the Gathering as it arrived after the event. I drove it to Jason and April Meeker who will take pics and next stop after that is John Lambert. It is still alive and going.

Phoenix, Arizona
The Landy decided to meet some 1:1 friends at Desert Valley Auto Parts in North Phoenix. All of these shots are of project cars and parts cars for sale.
I never realised that there was so much old metal only four miles from my workplace!

It is nice to see the Landy is still doing the rounds. Thanks too for the myriad of photographs. It is amazing to see all that metal just sitting there rusting away. Makes you wonder why more people don't pick up the parts and try to recreate some of those older vehicles.

:) :D :P

Fantastic pics Jason. Such a shame to see all those fantastic old pieces of Americana rusting away.
