Photo: Troy Paiva / Lost America
While many cars are cherished by their owners and go on to lead long, fulfilling lives, some are deserted and left for dead long before their time.Photographer Troy Paiva has number of stirring pictures on his site, Lost America, that show the grittier side of the west.
From ghost towns to abandoned cars, Troy’s work captures beauty in these situations. The photos are mainly taken at night and make use of unique lighting to show an even eerier side of these lost rides.
The saddest photo in the set. A gorgeous Jaguar E-Type has been left to decay. We'll gladly take it off their hands.
If the Ghostbusters need a second vehicle, perhaps this Pontiac Ambulance would be a fitting car to rescue.
