There is something sad, and yet incredibly artistic about forgotten wrecks of cars and tractors put out to pasture in unused fields and farms.
The life story behind each silent dark-brown oxidising iron body could fill a book each, yet no one will ever tell their tales. They are finished forever, jobs done. Owners have more than likely already passed on but the wrecks will still be around for another 100 years or so. That is, unless the price of scrap iron rises significantly enough to make it worthwhile to transport the bodies to the coast to be shipped to highly industrialised nations like China and India. I hope they stay where they are – at least we still get to appreciate a glimpse of their history while we try to fathom what their once shiny bright name badges read.
The tractors shown here were spotted in Joubertinia. Still visible are the makes of CASE and FARMALL (only just managed to read that one) and the cars were spotted in farmland near Leeu Gamka (any ideas of what they are?)
