Car on Stilts

No longer overgrown... can see just fine driving on 27.

Car on Stilts

The car is literally falling apart, and the overgrowth of the trees, brush, and everything is such a mess that you can barely see the car. We couldn't even get a shot of it; all you would see trees and brush. The car is not really on stilts, as we got out and really got a close look at it. It is on a raised platform.

The car on stilts is 9 miles north of Augusta, and 9 miles south of Cadott, WI. The old car is on Highway 27 at Scenic Rd. There is nothing around but corn fields, however across the intersection is a sign for an orchard down Scenic Drive. Currently has a closed sign, but probably open during Autumn.
