Great shot, Wayne!

Wayne,
We too have Ospreys on our lake near Spokane. We also have a resident goose population numbering in the hundreds honking up a storm. The other day I walked to the shop; didn't hear anything and took a look. We had two bald eagles sitting on the edge of the ice. All the geese had departed for friendlier parts. Amazing; I had never seen eagles other than in northern Idaho. Neat! And quiet for a change. The only falcons I've seen are the wheeled type.

This is a sign of age .---I can remember when that Falcon sedan had not long been embraced by that tree some 40 plus years ago. It was put there by a car wrecker to promote his nearby car wrecking business on the outskirts of Kempsey -[which is not far from me] in the state of NSW Australia.

Have just been reminded by an Australian friend that the car i was thinking of may have been a HOLDEN .

It must have been there a long time considering the size of the branch coming out the rear window.

My mistake, the branch is alongside the rear window!

That front tire looks like it might still have some good in it.

Bob you are right. There is a Holden up the gum tree!

The photo below is off the back of Norm Darwin's History of Holden book (and the Falcon is on his Ford book).

Now, Bob, you can be honest with us. We're an understanding lot. But, is planting cars in trees an unfortunate habit in Australia?

Holden Up the Gum Tree

Wasn't the Falcon called Frontenac in Canada?

Hi John, When a HOLDEN involved it's called a LAVOR-TREE

Here is the full frontal shot. As John says, this picture is on the rear cover of Norm Darwins book, 'The History of Ford in Australia'. Regular forum contributor Peter Kable wrote the text for the Model T and pre Model T component of the book and did an excellent job of recording the history of the Model T era in Australia.

I think these cars were assembled and sold at a branch dealership.

Looks like the branch is using the Ford corporate colours in the way of a blue gum tree.

Good place for a Falcon. In 1967, my '61 Falcon wagon lost all its tranny oil through a crack, and the synchros seized, stopping the car in the remote highlands of northern Spain. I had to jack it up and crawl under, while the occasional local came by and studied me and the young wife and blonde baby. Turns out, they were friendly.

I used a quart of motor oil and a screwdriver to free the synchros, and get us on to Burgos. I had it topped up every few days after that, and it got us back home in Germany.

59 Chevy truck in a tree in Wisconsin...

That Chevy truck is actually worth something...it needs rescuing. It must be a PhotoShop job...technically that won't work.

Hi guys, I dont have a photo but I went to see a WW2 British Ferret scout car 50miles from here near one of the pine forest plantations and when I got there the thing was six feet off the ground and the trees were lifting it through the engine bay and like a fork lift and the owner wanted $10k for it and the rust was growing as fast as the tree it would be about twenty five or thirty feet off the ground now.
