Hupmobile Sedan

HUPMOBILE #449

"Hupmobile #449" - Sitting in a garage as if it had just been pulled in for routine maintenance this late 1920's (1929?) Hupmobile sedan was one of the few in this junk yard that still had some color. Surrounded by car parts and flanked by an old Chevrolet sedan, this scene speaks to the role of cars in American history... and our fondness for working on them. This photograph of the old Hupmobile sedan is available as a limited edition metal print only.

This old Hupmobile sedan (late 1920’s) was found hiding in an old red garage surrounded by 1000’s of miscellaneous auto parts and flanked by an old Chevy sedan barely visible under a pile of ‘junk’. Of course in a ‘junk’ yard the word junk takes on an entirely different meaning and is more likely to be interchangeable with the word treasure than it would be with the word trash. I have always loved junk yards, each old car has a story and I can’t help but let my imagination put the car back in service and feel the history that the car might have been a part of. The automobile is an integral a part of American history and this old Hupmobile sedan was certainly witness to a period of time when auto’s were quickly becoming indispensable to both the work and personal identity of Americans. This image is for sale as a limited edition metal print.
