Photographer's comments:
     This old Chevy and the barn were on the home place of a man named Jerry Stewart.  Stewart was killed in a farming accident earlier in 2002.  This picture was shot shortly before a public ceremony naming the state road that runs in front of his house the Jerry Stewart Highway.
     Stewart apparently was a collector of old cars and trucks.  To the side of the barn was an early-1960s Chevy or GMC work truck, and an early-1950s Oldsmobile sedan.  There might have been more old vehicles inside the barn, but I didn't look.

More location information:
     
Near the intersection of KY 94 and KY 303 (Jerry Stewart Highway), just south of Cuba in Graves County.
     Graves County is in the southwest part of the state.  Its southern boundary is the Kentucky-Tennessee line.
     Cuba's claim to fame in Kentucky history was the 1952 Cuba High School boys basketball team, who won the state championship that year against teams from much larger schools.  An entire book has been written about the Cuba Cubs and their championship season, When Cuba Conquered Kentucky, by Marianne Walker.  To this day, highway signs are erected in Cuba proclaiming the championship.
