It is estimated that over 12 Million cars are trashed every year in the United States and land up in salvage yards. The Auto Alliance says that car recycling is the 16th largest industry and garners $25 billion a year.
While 75% of the car can be recycled, that leaves millions of pounds of car waste sitting around collecting rust.
It is not just parts that can be reused, a few have taken the big step and transported the cars to interesting outdoor uses.
This 1953 Chevy is a play house, a gazebo and a garden.
This looks like it is in a nursery. Raised patio on a truck bed.
A mother home might be a true home or guest house.
I love this. One way to pot a tree.
The Man Patio
The Man Patio bar with vintage jeep grill.
Cute and clever, a car door as a planter. Note the hubcap.
As a greenhouse, how cool is this!
Chicken Coop Cars are very popular.. I wonder where they got the cop car?
Convertibles make great pools.
I love this, but dusting would be a pain. Outdoor hammocks with the fronts as planters would be fun.
Talk about a Man Patio.. add that TV and when it rains, just close the trunk door.
VW Bug hoods as umbrellas.. who would have thought?
Rear doors as gates?
Side doors as a gate.
