The name’s Flyrod. American car culture is my thing. If it rolls, roars, or rumbles I’m into it. Statistics and facts aren’t my gig. My mission is to track down and capture the infamous rides that make up pop culture, and to tell their stories.

    MONUMENTS

    A long, black, and shiny Cadillac car
    In a barren land so distant and far

    Witness the monuments of nature and man
    Evolving from kayos? Or built with a plan?

    Monuments rising a thousand feet high
    Carved by the wind and reaching the sky

    A machine built for travel embellished with style
    Expanding horizons with every mile

    The lifespan is short for works man-made
    Coveted possessions will all surly fade

    These rocks were carved out by wind blown sand
    Dotting the valley majestic and grand

    A scene in the making for millions of years
    The natural world and all its frontiers

    Nature reclaims all that man makes
    His greatest achievements and worst mistakes

    “From dust to dust”, the old saying goes
    A man also reaps that which he sews

    Metal will rust and paint will fade
    Such is the fate of all that’s man-made

    You made me find all of the 4 images flyrod. One of your signature reflections imposed on the Caddy. Makes is so believable. Also have to agree with “Nature reclaims all that man makes
    His greatest achievements and worst mistakes”
    Great job!

  • A million thanks my friend.
