Curbside Outtakes: A Curbside Row of Work Trucks Outside Espanola, New Mexico

Last weekend I drove down to Albuquerque to help my daughter move into a new apartment. On the way back to Denver, I decided to detour through the New Mexico back country and check out the Taos area. A couple more hours of driving, but spectacular scenery.

During the drive, I spotted this collection work trucks was a few miles south of Espanola, a town on the road between Santa Fe and Taos.

As you can see, the lot contains Fords, Chevys, and Dodges, mostly from the fifties and sixties.

A few cars mixed in, all the vehicles display a patina consistent with the dry high desert climate of northern New Mexico, showing sun burned paint, but little rust.
