This massive dump truck lies helpless, every one of its once powerful wheels useless.
She reminds me of a beached whale, lying on her belly in the dirt, waiting for the inevitable.
It's clear that at one time someone was very proud of this vehicle. But now she has outlived her usefulness. It's usually the way with vehicles.
Someone has repainted her twice, and whoever gave her her last color, green, took the trouble to repaint the Chevrolet "bowtie" in her grill to match. She was both red and blue before she was green, but I can't tell which color was the original.
But her last owner took the time to completely obscure their name from her doors.
