Trees and Cars and The House and Stuff.

by Lori Dwyer on March 21, 2012 · 15 comments

I’m still researching The House– it’s slow going. Finding the title number, plan number, or even the accurate street number is nearly impossible. 

I can tell you this, though- as I said in the first place, there are things in that house that have no logical right to be there.

The man who I believed lived there, who’s personal effects are everywhere… he migrated to Australia in 1948, and was the first f his family to do so. The stacks- thousands- of newspapers are all Australian, from Sydney and it’s surrounding areas, and date back as far as 1940. There are Masonic newsletters from New south Wales dating back as far as 1932.

I actually went back recently, looking for more information, and took some video footage while I was there. I’ll vlog it for you soon, promise.

Curiouser and curiouser. I still have a few phone calls to make. I’ll keep you posted.

I’ve been on some more urbex-ing adventures…. I just haven’t had time to edit the photos yet. Heh. So sue me. Having pneumonia, again, for the second time in six months… it slows you down a bit.

In the meantime, I know some of you will think this is cool. Locals of this are are gonna say “Meh..”, because we all drive it past it every day and are so used to seeing it.

But what’s not to like about a car with a tree growing through it?

I’ve never been sure if it came about my intention or accident… I don’t think it matters. It’s all kind of living awesome.

I guess that's one way to put a beyond repair vehicle to good use. It's definitely a lot better than letting it rot away in a junkyard.

I am really curious about the story of that tree in the trunk. Can someone verify this?

How did the tree got in there? Maybe some kid back in the days threw a tiny seed and thus the magic of time showered that tree.

Aww this is actually cute. The fact that someone planted that tree in that rusty hood is magnificent.

This can be a tourist attraction. Sometimes, driving somewhere out of our comfort zones can lead to interesting finds like this.

The car tree ROCKS! I love that crap. Wish I could come and explore with you. I love the show "If These Walls Could Talk". Such awesome history old homes have, documents in the walls, diaries, money! Cant wait to hear more about that guy and the house. Cliff hanger….. :) Lisa

I love the tree car! How awesome!

I am assuming it's the car tree that I know of that very large house belonging to to a leader in the area?
Because I have always been in awe of that car tree. I told one of my exes, who lived in Tarhmoor that I wanted him to buy that property for me just so I could have the car tree. Yep. I'm a bit special.

Unfortunately it hasn't been there as long as it looks like. The car was placed around the tree when the guy who owns it now (Sasha) bought it – about ten or so years ago I think. Years ago my grandparents owned that property and it was a service station back then ( about 45 or so years ago).

Wow the photo of that truck-tree is awesome.

Can't wait to find out more about'the house'.

When I was growing up (i'm 30 now) I would often come across derelict houses.
You are right there is always something a bit creepy and eerily energetic about them.
Especially if there are items left over to give you a hint at who used to lve there.

My immediate presumption as a kid was that whoever had lived there must have died.
I always wanted to know the story behind it all.

Funny,you don't see many derelict houses nowadays though.

That is awesome!
I can't believe the council left it there all that time and didn't have it removed.
Hopefully it's always a resident in TinyTrainTown. It's very cool.
