Spare Parts?

This one is for Tom, who in his latest post Beyond Repair was speculating whether an old farm cart could be repaired or not. Well Tom, if you shop around you might just find some second hand parts that will do the job.


A bit of tweaking here and there and they and they should be as good as new.


These were photographed at the Padstal Restaurant at Patensie, in the Gamtoos River Valley

Interesting photos Max! I think they may take more than just a "bit" of tweaking :)

Great pictures. I like rustic scenes like these. I live near an area of farms and often see old barns and rusted antique machinery. I appreciate their history and find that there is a certain charm to them.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm going to keep your link so I can look at your blog further. I love southern African and hope to return again and again.

So sad it has rotted like this. Our neighbor set our an old wagon cart that horses pull. His idea was he would paint it but he never did and it is slowly rotting.

That was a bell on my blog for SWF.

Excellent Max... I have seen the old wheels made into chairs and the hubs used as table stands, but if they can not be saved they sure come in very have for taking pictures of... I will do a series of posts on the farm mine came from.. the cart is in better nick than the farm.. how sad is that.

I wonder where they have hidden the rest of the vehicle. Lost to the mists of time I guess. I can't resist old farm machinery; it really talks to you doesn't it.

By the way you have an award over at my blog. :)
