Found In a Field North of Kyoto

This AMT Ertl '53 Ford Pickup was the first model box my son got into at age three. Last month we found what was left of the box and decided it's future would be as a rusty wreck with a tree growing from under the hood.

The narrow chassis didn't leave much room for the bonsai tree so I ended up removing it.

Luckily, I found a tree with a thin enough trunk for the hood to fit in place.

The finished product was a 64th birthday gift for my Dad, who happens to like 50's Fords and bonsai trees. The dead Ford in a Japanese garden is a little ironic.
