Collectible junk

A few weeks back when I was walking along the alley on my way down to the river, I noticed that someone had parked a rickety car trailer in front of a decrepit cinderblock shack. On the trailerbed sat an old VW Karmann Ghia coupe, one of Volkswagen's pretty cool early collaborations with an Italian design studio to style a sports car. This one, something between a barn find and a junkyard relic, looks like an ambitious project for an amateur restorer. Or maybe, more likely, it will continue to rust away in the alley until the owner comes to his senses.

Not all of us do.
