Maybe I have lived in Wisconsin too long, but when I saw these two old Chevys lying on their haunches in the freshly mowed grass, I thought immediately of a couple of big old cows, their legs folded beneath them and their heads erect, staring straight ahead.
After knocking on the door of the house and getting no answer, I wandered out to the pasture and made these photos. Both cars appear to be 1950 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe 4 Doors, a workhorse of the Chevy line, touted for its reliability and value, virtues a farmer or factory worker would appreciate.
The soft luster of their paint and the spray of grass around their mouth-like grills certainly reinforced the Chevys’ bovine appearance, and they seemed to be very content to be resting here in the lush spring grass of Wisconsin.
