Is this better as a planter now or a car?

It now moves on from car to planter and is currently stopped at modern art.

Absolute modern art ! I would title it as "The Environment takes Revenge"
@cyrus: The tyre looks clean probably because it's gotten washed thru several rain showers.

Of course it's not in India! You rarely find such 'natural' untouched scrapyards here- these cars would've been cannabalised then and there!
It's somewhere in the US. You can find such yards actually made in jungles very commonly there.
Are such yards legally still allowed in the US btw? They've almost completely disappeared in Europe because of the environmental laws currently enforced there.

Or maybe "Tarzan's wheels!"

The tyre is also clean because their roads are, and also because they were not even half worn-out when this car was dumped as scrap here!

We still have acres of scrap yards in Canada and in the States.
I was looking for a set of Mag rims and a few small items for my VW Passat and called one of the biggest scrap yards near Toronto and they said to bring my tools and see if i could find what I was looking for. Didn't find all that I was looking for but what a lot of cars. Labour is so expensive most cars are being crushed.

There is a Jaguar repair shop in the heart of Toronto that has over 100 Jags in his "scrap yard". I had posted a lot of photos in the Jaguar thread but will post one here.

I've seen this one. It's in a basement off Pedder Road, right opposite where I used to live.
The car was in good shape, somewhat restored, till five years ago. Pity the owner's letting it go to seed, so much for "lucky charm" !

Some of the owners who can't afford the cost costs to maintain them just bring them in and leave them rather than get $100 from a scapper. I had to pull the engine of my 78 XJ6 with only 78k to redo the rear main bearings 2 pistons and some other minor work and the bill was over 3 lak! Parts are expensive, side mirrors new R12,000 each + shop time @ R3,000 per hr. min!

When I return, I have to replace my timing belt on my VW Passat as required when over 120,000k. The VW Dealer charge about R40,000.

You just don't know how expensive it is to get work done in N.A.

Good Lord, that's some serious money. We're lucky to have our "Annas" and "Morey Mamas" here to do our work !

I think that you are mixing up something, or there are 2 early Fiat's in a basement off Peddar Road. This is NOT the car on Carmichael Road opp. Morarka Bungalow which used to lie on the footpath and then went in.
Please check.

Here is the 56 Olds 88 without the plants in it. The yard is in Tennesee where it rains all the time, and these yards are what's called "grandfathered in", which means they have been there so long, no law can remove them until they sell the business or property at which point all the new environmental laws take effect immediately including any toxic soil cleanup. So in essence lots of this acreage is now unsaleable or very devalued. The one question about the clean tire is correct.
