Say what you like about the 1970s and 1980s, but they weren't pretty eras.

Architecture. Fashion. Cars. All were ugly from this period.

Perhaps the best thing we've seen done with a junker convertible car is this great planter.

There's a sense of justice about it having its top removed, being filled with soil, and planted with flowers.

We're guessing that the previous owner was responsible for the bright orange paint and weird swirly murals... but it somehow works alongside the bright yellow Daffodils.
