Whilst it may not be notable, or a rarity, by its age it is historic.

Just because there are 2353245 Coca-Cola adverts lying about across the globe, doesn't negate one from the 1950s being a historic piece.

Ergo, the point I was trying to make, which is that by its age, it IS historic, still stands.

However, it is not a Chevy. It is simply a 54 year old interstate era Ugly Eyesore Steel Bridge (UESB). Nothing historically exciting about this one, just a simple freeway overpass like mentioned before. We have thousands just like it around the country.

> Built 1958

If it was a Chevy from the same era, you'd be calling it a historic/vintage car.

This bridge isn't really historic. It's not that old, and it's not interesting in any way. Just a freeway overpass that is falling apart.
