It looks like someone had begun taking the tinsnips to this Bug's (oval) rear window ...

That T is still there Rick but with a huge Alder tree growing out the middle .
I'll try to get some more photos of it when all this pesky snow disappears.
cheers

A similar VW is the first "foreign" car that I recall and was quite a statement amongst the "Sit-up and Beg" Fords that were the usual motors in the village of my formative years! Was owned by a Mr Rose, which I believe was his surname rather than a reference to any horticultural ability. Smile

My thanks to Alan Turner, for this set of photos that feature a cache of classic Alfa Romeos that he spotted, while in Sicily.

Doesn't look too bad does it, shame I took the photo 21 years ago .... coincidentally I drove past the same yard only today, although AFAIK all the oldies were cleared years ago.

Also from Alan (the source of the previous Alfa photos), a snapshot of a poorly Chevrolet, this time spotted on the Greek island of Kephalonia in 2015.
