Half '52 Chevy Deluxe

Half Chevy

I'm not sure what the deal is here, but I saw this while adding more shots to my "Parking Garage Views" series.  One morning on my way to work I decided it was time to see if I could find more views of the Austin skyline and this time I headed west on 6th street to Lamar.  I turned right on Lamar and then another right onto 9th and then another right onto Henderson.  This garage was the first one on the left.  As I walked to the stairs to go to the top, this unusual sight befell me and I thought it very interesting.  I can't imagine why someone would do that to a car like this one.  As a matter of fact, my friend and co-worker, Darrell Jourdan has one just like this, except it is whole.  I guess this is another one of those weird things that Austin is trying to be famous for but has yet to get there.

This shot was processed as usual.
