Ocean Find: 1964 Bonneville Station Wagon

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Unearthed by winter storms in Morro Bay, California is what appears to be a 1964 Bonneville station wagon. The car was reportedly abandoned in 1973 after stalling on the beach and now after nearly 40 years of decay in a salty graveyard this piece of American iron is a nature crafted sculpture. It’s amazing how the backseat and parts of the door panels appear unaffected by the ravages of the elements. The car was gone a few weeks later- perhaps returned to the sculptor for some finishing touches.
