I was almost home when I spotted this dilapidated old Dodge truck parked in someone’s driveway. Love the colors. Glad I had my iPhone with me!

If nothing else it gave me a chance to take a look through my archives where I found this iPhone snap of an abandoned bus I spotted while visiting Arizona a while back. Stay cool!
