Backroads Double Take

My husband and I were coming home on the backroads of piedmont NC yesterday, after a reconnaissance trip to Hanging Rock State Park to scout out potential camping sites, when we drove by this! (Sorry to make you link out, but I could not for the life of me figure out how to get the pictures right side up!)

I called to my husband, "It's an Avion!!" and slowed a little but kept on going. Then the most amazing thing happened. He said, "I didn't really get to see it. Why don't you go back." So, of course I found the next pull out and back we went. The old lady was sitting at a closed up gas station and I was honestly a little afraid someone was going to come over with a shotgun and ask me what I was doing taking pictures. There was still a Florida license plate on the back, but the last registration sticker was for 1995. I sure hope someone finds her and gives her a new lease on life so she doesn't just rust/corrode away on the side of the road watching others go by and wishing she was on the road with them.
