Austin A70 Hampshire Ute , Portrait by 

This Austin A70 is a permanent feature amongst the gum-trees on property owned by my father-in-law on Kangaroo Island, South Australia. As far as I know, the new owners of the property have left the own car sitting there with the branches growing in, around and over its body!

    hehe, i like how you’ve called this a portrait. these are a very cool series…. it seems she’s smiling and winking here, after all these years – i hope your father-in-law never gets rid of it!!

  • Thanks thickblackoutline, much appreciated for the comment. I don’t foresee my FIL ever removing the cars: He plans to remain on the property for another 20 years.
    PS. In the background is a black Zephyr. All his cars have been literally ‘put out to pasture’, out here under the trees, for the past forty years.
