Oh my! Rough times makes for rough looking cars. Ya gotta' do what ya gotta' do. I'll bet he was grateful to have it.
Cook is an old, very small, logging community in Northern Minnesota. It's located about 70 miles South of the Canadian border. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see a good many cars in town in this day and age that are just barely capable of making it into town. It's beautiful country but other than a little logging and some past iron mining there isn't much there. I should add, it's good bear hunting up in that neck of the woods and some fairly good fishing too. Lots of grouse, a few moose and a lot of deer.
Why is this thread OT? It's a little hard to recognize, but isn't that a "slightly modified" T?
Henry, it's not OT. But I was more interested in posting the photo than coming up with a title for the thread. In this case OT stands for "Old 'n Tired".
"Takes a Lickin', Keeps On Tickin'"
Given the soggy nature of the land up there,I'm kinda surprised to see an old car at all (unless the photo is from later in the 30's). Navigable roads up there were pretty scarce back then. A horse was probably a better transportation alternative.
