Wheels in the grass

During my many hours behind the wheel in my day job (over 64,000 miles last year!), I come across many of those (seemingly) abandoned cars parked in somebody’s yard, and thought I’d feature one every Wednesday evening in this spot.
This one I’ll bet has some kind of a story behind it. A 1950 Chevy Fleetline sedan with attached period camper. The Chevy has plates from the state of Washington, and it’s parked just off the lot of a motel on Rt. 20 in Chautauqua county. Abandoned? Broke down and forgotten about? Did somebody’s girlfriend’s father finally track them down and haul them back to Washington without their wheels? Maybe none of the above or all of the above!
