Abandoned car hidden by overgrowth of ivy

Images of an abandoned car in China have gone viral. The vehicle, which is so overgrown by ivy plants that it resembles a giant-size Chia Pet, had been disregarded for over a year before police responded and were forced to tow the car away.

>>> it's always a good idea to check on your car every once in awhile. look at these pictures out of china. the owner apparently abandoned the car -- there was a car under all of that -- about a year ago. it's completely overgrown with ivy. the car has become a bit of a social media sensation. police finally responded to the complaints. they tried to remove the vines but they decided the vehicle should be towed away instead, vines and all. that's a lesson in taking care of that car. that car maintenance .
