WWII Dodge & The Black Rock Desert & Blue Sky
...this one being the cab which was all that remained of a WW ii Dodge [right hand drive] documented by a friend of mine in 1970 on a trip north of Pyramid Lake and semi-immortalized by me as an Abandoned Car print in 1973 ["Xenobia Dodge"; http://www.mikesmooreptgs.com/
abandoned%20cars/index.html] and the fenders, which I thought I'd use on the '45 Chev but didn't coming from Brian's in American Canyon a couple of years ago...anyway, awhile back, having remembered the Dodge, I discovered the cab was at least still there on the desert so we went down with my flatbed trailer and a comealong one early summer morn and brought it up [as I may have mentioned to you earlier] to the Abandoned Carlife Refuge here on the Smoke Creek...no salt, little rust, but most likely not what you're looking for as the days grow short down east...Hey; weren't you going to Marfa for the holidays?"--from Michael Moore, out in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada.
