“Gosh that takes me back… or is it forward?
That’s the trouble with time travel, you never can tell.”

~ Dr. Who

An old farm “horse” (Chevrolet truck) that now spends its days as a mobile fruit and vegetable stall on the side of the road at Gumlu, a little town on a desolate stretch of the highway between Bowen and Home Hill.
The Chevy serves its retirement days well displaying luscious mangoes and firm ripe tomatoes on its canvas covered tray tempting highway travelers to stop and sample its succulent wares.
Still bright eyed, it leaves its roadside vigil each day at dusk to meander its way back along a dusty track to its owners nearby farm.
Hopefully the old Time Traveler will see many more daily trips up and down memory lane so that others can enjoy its presence while reminiscing of days gone by.
