We found this rusty ’54 Pontiac while taking a drive on the High Road from Santa Fe to Taos. New Mexico is a great place for finding old cars because the climate is dry and the air free of salt so they don’t rust as much as they do in other places. This car is similar to one my grandparents took on a road trip from Iowa to San Diego when it was brand new in 1954. Do you have favorite old car photos to share?
