Automobile in Southern Arizona"

[During an archaeological survey of Arizona State Trust lands north of 
Ashfork AZ, we came upon an old, rusted Ford truck hidden in the P-J.  The 
vehicle had been abandoned there probably since the '20s (the P-J was grown 
up around the truck and it wasn't going anywhere), and much of the old fella 
was still ' in-situ.'   The flat glass lenses from the headlamps lay on the 
ground in front of the vehicle.  An attribute I had never anticipated in old 
automobiles revealed itself -- the glass lenses had turned purple !  --
