The Boneyard. US 84, Northern Santa Fe County, New Mexico

The nearest legible business sign said "Rocky's Auto Truck Center"--see below. It was a Sunday morning, no one around and I shot everything through the chain-link fence. La Puebla, NM. The truck above is, what?--maybe a '63 GMC C10?  Looks like a 1962 GMC C10 (way below). Bunch of fire trucks, water trucks, what have you. A Ford F3, maybe 1950. I'm guessing the car is a '48 Chevrolet. Nice, basic, very Donald Judd-like antelope grill on that 1960(?) Ford F100.
