    That great old 1927 Dodge Graham in Bodie. It's seen and shot by everybody but it's too cool not to share.

    That's a nice restoration job on that old truck.

    Not quite true it's been shot by everyone - I have a shot of those pumps and that truck was nowhere to be seen when I visited in 2015.

    Very neat scene Barry. I wonder how many people were old enough to see these pumps still in use? When I was young, you had to get to a rural place to see them, but there were a few.

    I encountered a working specimen in 1970 when I visited a friend who was working for the USFS in Warren Idaho. I actually used it to refill the tank in my 1964 VW bus.

    This is one view that never gets old. It's always fun to capture, and waiting for people to get out of the shot adds to the excitement! :)

    all those bullet holes in the sign are so cool. Nice historic composition too.
