What a Find!
Lens: Sigma 10-20 f4 Camera: K-01 Photo Location: Belair, MB, CA ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/80s Aperture: F5.6

Apparently this car is a 1932 Oldsmobile that had been parked in the bush and left to rust decades ago. It was hauled out this past spring (April-ish 2017) and is a lawn ornament now. The tree growing through the roof is rooted in the car; not a existing tree growing through it.

Great find !
Amazing how a little seed could have taken roots inside the car!
Now, go back there, haul it away and restore it!

Nice car. Those 'old' Oldsmobiles were wonderful cars, my wife's grandparents had a '36 Olds 4 door that they used to drive into the Canadian Shield wilds of Eastern Manitoba and NW Ontario in the '30's and '40's....in 'their Merry Oldsmobile', as the old song goes. Her GF was an early bush pilot.

Great grille...like the design and the slant and it still has a cylinder block, but it's head has gone missing...I see.
