Container Gardening Ideas: a Vintage Truck Used as a Planter

If the Dick Van Dyke movie, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, taught us anything (and it didn't), then it was that an old car can get a new lease on life.

Somebody was paying attention during all that cringe-worthy sentimental sap and awful song and dance numbers.

Because where most people would see trash, this container gardener saw treasure.

I give this idea 10 out of 10 for both originality and color use.

There are even a couple of whiskey barrel planters on the rear of the truck bed. Genius!

Don't bank on this truck ever moving again -- but who cares, when it looks this good?
