Now, I never owned a Barbie convertible.

Hardly surprising, since, being a boy, I was into Action Man (aka GI Joe), and the other kids would have teased me endlessly for coveting a Barbie accessory.

Yet covet it I did. I have always had a thing for sports cars. GI Joe was never going to cruise down the boulevard in an open-top Ferrari; he was only at home in combat fatigues, behind the wheel of an armored ATV. Shame, I thought, because his rugged looks would have done well in a Miami Vice-style contrast setting.

When I saw this amazing use for a Barbie car, I could not resist adding it to my list of weird planters. To be honest, a few Barbie-pink flowers would have been more striking, but you have to give the gardener marks for originality!
