    Came across this old pontiac that has been sitting for many years judging by how thick the rose bushes were around and very big in diameter.

    Took a long time just to cut out that little bit around the car just to get to it.

    I am guessing it is a 1955 pontiac, has a straight axle, no engine, race car back in the day, they said to come back in the spring time and we can talk some more about it.

    First picture from back in the day.

    yeah....before you start tugging on that car, you'd better check with the Sierra Club to make sure them plants ain't an endangered species and there there ain't no spider habitats existing within the confines of that vehicle.

    nice find - I'm helpless on the sticker though - sorry

    Look like blackberries to me too, bet there's a turtle in there somewhere. Better call Jane Fonda and PITA before you ruin his garden.

    They are right it is a Himalayan blackberry (Rubus discolor), a nasty weed so no need to get PITA involved. Oh and yes I am a herbologist (botanist).

    That is a pretty amazing fine, hope you can give it a new home soon!
