1964 Chevrolet C10, caged. Marfa

Erik Baier saw this backyard dog in Marfa. I know the truck and a few years ago wanted to buy it but something Marfa-esque happened. Or more likely, this being Marfa, didn't happen. I never could find or talk to the owner, or something. As a Marfan friend of our's said, "Mañana does not mean tomorrow; it just means not today." One of our trucks had the same ironwork antelope grill; I think a lot of these were done in shop classes at Marfa High School.
