Car Half in the Ground

I had just visited the Abandoned Airplane Gas Station in Vinemont when I took a wrong turn and happened to notice a car half-buried in the ground at a transmission shop. Of course I stopped to take some pictures, and noticed they also have a mailbox built out of a transmission.
