When the road gets long and you see a unique sign like this promising paradise, who
could resist? This is the terrestrial inland version of the ship graveyard on the Arthur Kill. This old Packard used a ship’s wheel as decortion.
Ships disintegrate on a mudflat sink into ooze, whereas here trees surge through,
and kudzu carpets.
Post-war automobiles had art deco “figureheads” of all sorts, like this 1950 (?) Pontiac, and
Strolling through these north Georgia woods gives hints of a post-petroleum future, a time and place where
archeologists yet-to-be-born might devote years of research and write dissertations on puzzling markers like these.

Note: Old Car City is about two miles off I-75.
