Giardinetta

I was so attached to my first car growing up that I always said when it can no longer function, I would cut the roof off and turn it into a giant flower pot to put in my backyard. So obviously, I absolutely love what artist Manuel Felisi did to a vintage Autobianchi. A truly beautiful installation . . .

  2. That’s a serious DIY! I think my husband would kill mé, if I did that to my car eventhough it was a wreck. But very cool!

  3. What an awesome display. In Toronto, we have a neighbourhood called Kensington Market, where there’s an abandoned car that has all kinds of plants growing out of it. It’s quite magical actually.

    I love this! I was also sooooooo attached to my first car, a 12 year-old black saab 900. I think its because it really represented freedom to me….and independence.

    Very good job but…
    That car is not a Fiat.
    It’s a Autobianchi.

    I love it. I felt so sad selling my first car off, I feel like it would have preferred to be glorified like this.
