YAK Car Pic of the Day

Yesterday’s photo from the Austin scrapyard is one of many I’ll be showing you from my recent trip to Texas. The more boring-looking shots were taken by me. Katie, my daughter and partner in crime on this trip, is the more artistic of us two, and she also took some photos which I’ll be using from time-to-time. Like this 1950 Buick Super Tourback sedan. The Tourback was a distinctive body style offered by Buick around this time — all it was was a more conventionally-shaped roofline and trunk compared to the Jetback Sedanet (which these days we’d refer to as a fastback). This beauty was photographed at the C.T.C. Auto Ranch, just outside of Fort Worth. It’s acres and acres of mostly post-war iron, and mostly American but there is a smattering of imports to be seen. I recommend it as a must-see if you’re ever in the area.
