YAK Car Pic of the Day

'88 Dodge Ram, Ransomville, N.Y.

Although this 1988 Dodge Ram pickup may look uninteresting, it actually… oh hell, it is uninteresting. But (and I tried to capture it in a photo but it just doesn’t look like anything) the contents of the bed are unusual. It seems that whoever traded it at the Ransomville car dealer where it has sat for a while now, was maybe in the middle of delivering phone books or something similar, and just left them there. To rot. And they are. And then there’s that bush. If you click on the photo you’ll see a bush, also in the bed. Thing is, it’s actually growing up through the bed from the ground. Not only are the old books rotting away, the floor of the bed is largely daylight. Wonder what kind of trade-in value this thing had?

(Thanks to alert YAK blog-follower Greg Taylor for pointing out this relic)
