MONTAUK in winter storage at Montauk Yard on November 16, 1975.

Photographer's reflections: A broad and smooth East End sky beyond
the rooftop of parlor MONTAUK was giving way to “first light”
when I photographed the car at sunrise. The wind from Fort
Pond Bay had yet to awaken; dry brush at the foot of the vestibule
steps stood tall and still, accompanied by weathered paint that
streamed from the roof above, cutting straight across the car’s
stainless steel siding.
