YAK Car Pic of the Day



When I first started this feature a few years ago, I called it Wheels in the Grass, and featured mostly abandoned cars that looked like they were one day driven to a spot in the yard, parked, and forgotten about. Like this 1974/75 Mercury Comet, which I used to pass two or three times each week in the Town of Sheldon. It was definitely In the Grass. The Comet of the ’70s was the car you bought when your neighbors had a Ford Maverick and you wanted to one-up them. I don’t imagine they were too impressed, though.
