We’re starting a new series, mostly at Drive-By Shootings, called “Go Fence Yourself.” We’ve been exploring the barren Martian wasteland of Phoenix, lately. What better time than high summer, right? In beautiful South Phoenix and Maryvale, EVERYTHING has a fence. Industrial park parking lots top their chain link fences with razor wire. That’s how we say
What also dots the bombed out apocalypse of post-industrial, forgotten Phoenix is junkyards. Some are official businesses, some are hoards, some are parts bins for the unlicensed dealers selling frankenstein-like, cobbled together deathtraps on Craigslist. We even started a new blog dedicated to the fences themselves (because focusing is hard and the cars come out all blurry).
A Toyota Corona 1900
A Hudson Hornet (maybe)? There’s a whole slew of Porky’s jokes, especially considering the sketchy desolate neighborhood of warehouses and strip joints where we found it.
Sometimes, the prizes still run. (Or fly.)
We invite you to drop by the other joints for more.
