Maclean's Auto Wreckers Part Two

Shooting at Maclean's Auto Wreckers for the first time was overwhelming at first. Most of the cars, trucks and school buses were from the late 1970s to the 1990s. Now tucked away in one corner of the property is a section of cars and trucks from the 1950s and '60s. I wound up shooting automotive portraits and capturing parts of a vehicle.

Seeing a few old VW Beetles scattered over the property was sad as well as '70s vintage Jaguar XJ6 sedan, elegant car, fiendishly unreliable. Maclean's has an auto crusher but it looks like it hasn't been used in years, my guess the cashflow is from car parts and truck repair. It is an interesting place to go photographing amongst the wrecks. I would love to go back in the spring when the light is different.
