Old Rusty

This aged truck once enjoyed a vigorous life with a fresh green coat of paint. But since retirement, its splendid green has faded as it languishes in abandonment, subject to corrosive elements of the weather. It has remained sedentary for so long
 it is known now for its bright red hues, hence the name Old Rusty.
