Synopsis: Abandoned junk to some, the rusty old steel shells of vehicles are treasures to others, holding memories of a bygone era, or the promise of a pristinely restored, radically customized automobile. Automotive photographer Will Shiers has captured these dreams on film for over ten years, and this volume collects his images between two covers for the first time. Here are the beautiful husks Shiers has found in the United States fields and barns, shops, and salvage yards across States. Divided into five categories—General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Independents, and Special Vehicles—these wrecks and relics from 1910 to the 1970s come equipped with all the relevant information: history, model, location. And because few salvage yards today keep anything older than a 1980 vintage, many of these cars have been lost to the metal crusher. The most comprehensive and beautifully photographed collection of abandoned cars ever published, this volume preserves for all time the exquisite skeletons of American automotive might.
From the Back Cover:
“I’m jealous! Will Shiers went on a decade-long, nationwide automotive treasure hunt and has pictures to prove it. A car lover’s dream, Roadside Relics is well written, has interesting background information, and oh yeah, there’s also those fantastic photos.”
— Tom Cotter, author of MBI Publishing’s best-selling book The Cobra in the Barn
With more than 250 photos of long-forgotten wrecks that can still be found in fields, salvage yards, and along roadsides across the United States, Roadside Relics: America’s Abandoned Automobiles proves that one man’s junk car truly is another’s treasure.
Author and photographer Will Shiers spent 10 years and traveled through 49 states to find these relics that date from the 1920s to the 1970s. In all, his collection—featuring classic vehicles from General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, and numerous defunct manufacturers—is the most comprehensive one ever published, preserving exquisite skeletons of America’s automotive might and beauty.
