Every Old Car in Portland

For two years now, my brother and I have been documenting the amazing wealth of vintage automobiles parked along Portland’s curbs. Our photo blog is called Old Parked cars, and you can check it out here. You wouldn’t think that rust-prone old cars would do well in the soggy Pacific Northwest climate, but apparently that doesn’t matter. The number of oddball, unrestored, daily drivers still slowly acquiring patina and putt-putting around this town is truly remarkable. Check out some highlights after the jump to get a sense of what the project is all about.
