Old Car City USA in White Georgia …

We went to Atlanta this past weekend for Halloween.  I have seen this place on tv and have read about it in several photographer’s blogs and magazines and have always wanted to go.  Will knew where Old Car City USA is located ( White Georgia ) and off we went.  It was only twenty or so miles from where they live, straight up I-75.  Most of these junk yards are out in open fields, but this place is located among trees, so that in itself was nice.  To be honest with you, this is not something that I do very often and I cannot remember the last time I went to some old car junk yard and photographed.  I am sure that I have, but it has been years.  Being a people photographer, I was able to get a nice image of Fast Eddie playing the piano …

How is this for class?  A piano man at a junk yard … this is Fast Eddie and he serenades you as you enter the office / store.  At first I thought that it was the crazy uncle from Duck Dynasty, but no it is Fast Eddie and he has been playing piano for years at Old Car City USA.  Nice guy and a very talented piano player.  I am just going to go a head and post some images …

The rusted, old cars do not really do much for me … if you have seen one old car, you’ve seen them all.  The logos and emblems interest me more, so in another post I will show more of them.  The old Cadillac and Oldsmobile emblems get my interest and one more thing, they did not look like the above photos on the cars … the beauty of Photoshop.  Here is a link and the site says that their new theme song is out.  I am pretty sure that Fast Eddie the piano man has something to do with it.  So if you are ever in the vicinity of White Georgia, do yourself a favor and stop by Old Car City USA.  Let me know what you think … Frank
