Subject matter
After The Bikeriders series, Lyon decided to go South in search of a new project. He stopped in Knoxville, Tennessee, creating many unpublished works of the people in the town. Many of these images include young men and boys working on automobiles, or relaxing with friends in cars. In this image, two young men sit inside the vehicle, one leaning against the exterior. Lyon recalls finding this vehicle broken down on the side of the road. After helping the owner, Lyon took a series of photographs of him and his friends. 

Physical Description
A photograph of three boys in a car. A young man sits in the driver's seat and is visible through the windshield as he reaches his hand out to adjust the windshield wipers. Another boy sits in the back seat, while on the right a boy leans against the exterior of the car.
