Squaw Bay Ford by WayneBenedet Squaw Bay Ford by WayneBenedet
Located in the lush boreal forest along Lake Superior, this image, came as a gift. My thanks again to Harold Adams for alerting me to this striking truck. My thanks also to the owners who allowed me to photograph it.

The 1931 Ford model A is distinguished from the similar 1930 by the painted portion of the rad shell. This truck is the larger AA truck, which was the first year that Ford had a beveled gear, rear axel, and a 4-speed transmission. The wheels were supplied by Hayes (62)

Wow, that's a nice one! "Impossible" I'd say to get such a shot here in Germany. Local authorities would never let such a car stay there, it would be removed within one or two weeks.
Lately I've seen a film on TV where an artist in Switzerland decades ago has collected several old cars like this one and now the nature captures the whole ground back with trees inside of the wrecks, like on this one. Now the swiss government wants to remove the museum because of environmental issues. Weird.

My Dad will love this. I will have to remember to show him your trucks the next time he visits. He was born in 1923.

wow, that is about the same age as my father in law (1922). I have made the pictures into a small book that is being printed. One of the copies is for him, and another is for my dad.

That would make a nice Xmas gift. Do you have any spare copies and how much would it cost to buy and ship?

WayneBenedet Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2008
Thanks for writing Rebecca,

You have a couple of options if you want to buy a copy,

From my own gallery I only sell signed, framed, canvas mounted, UV protected gislee prints in 18x24 and 9x12 of the Old Ride Collection. The 18x24 is $450.00 the 9x12 is $250.00. Given that you live in Canada, it would be possible to ship it and you can use Paypal or COD.

The second option you have is to order on line from the Untapped Source, there you have a number of options in terms of papers, (and payment) but for comparison, a canvas mounted (18x24) Gislee print costs about 110.00 including shipping. (it will come to you rolled in a cardboard tube) Then you have to have it put on a stretcher frame (about 50.00), have it UV protected and finally framed (about 125.00 or more depending on the way you decide to frame it) unless you can do these things yourself. The image is not signed. If you want to explore that option here is the link [link]

I don't know where in Canada you live, but if you are in Manitoba, and you want to visit the show in Winkler in November, a purchase of the famed print will include a copy of the book called "An Old Ride" which features 21 full colour images from the gallery. The book is currently being printed and will be sold from 40.00 to 60.00 depending upon where it is purchased. (The lower price is directly from me, the higher is retail). Details of the show dates are on the front page of my dA gallery.

If I can help in any other way, please let me know.

I have to admit...that would be a slice. It would take most of a day though, because they are pretty spread out. I see a long drive through the country, then beer and a BBQ on the deck, finished with a long visit around the fire....hmmm...sounds great to me.
