Photography: Burn Your Face Upon the Chrome

A neighbor’s friend brought over his beautifully restored and hot rodded 1949 Chevrolet 3100 pickup as the pandemic lockdown was easing. They sat in the driveway chatting while I took a pile of photos of the gorgeous car. As soon as I saw the grille I thought of the Metallica song “Fuel” and the lyric “Burn your face upon the chrome”.
