Nominated by me, as the best photograph in the category..'Junk'.

Nicely done pic, well found.

I'm a fan of old VW's, including Karmann Ghia's. This is a different picture than just another old junker, in an overgrown salvage yard.

The broken headlights, fallen headliner of the car, while it sits morosely (I like that word ) on flat tires...on a bed of rusted cable fence, in a shed like building.

Also like the Chico's Towing sign...adds punch to this photograph.

Aside from the great picture quality, this car does have potential. The body looks solid in the pix and not too many VW KG's out there anymore. It's restorable.
