Permanently parked

I don't think this one is moving anytime soon. Note the tree seems to have grown between the bumper and the car, though it seems too big unless the car has been there many years.

A fine image of the old car. The mystery of the tree back of the bumper is something to ponder. A fine post.

There doesn't seem to be enough dirt and growth of vegetation over the car and bumper for it to have been undisturbed long enough for a tree that size to grow.

My impression is that the car hit the tree and decided to stay.
