Some of you may be aware that we began this old car blog back in 2009 on the web pages of the old Buffalo weekly Artvoice newspaper. We did new car reviews for AV under the heading You Auto Know, but our day job (a.k.a. real job) found us spending a lot of time driving around Erie, Niagara, Wyoming, Chautauqua, and Cattaraugus counties five days a week. At some point we started noticing a lot of randomly parked and/or abandoned cars on our drives and began taking photos. Originally called Wheels in the Grass, the feature evolved into The YAK Car Pic of the Day (YAK of course, being You Auto Know). When we parted ways with AV back in the spring of 2015, we moved our tent over here to the car pages of The Buffalo News. This 1953 Imperial Newport by Chrysler was one of the first Wheels in the Grass blog entries back in June, 2009. Pictured here is a reprint of how that blog entry looked. We saw the car somewhere in Wyoming County. (Often we weren’t sure just where we were back in the day, Lol.)
