Roadside Find

Dear Diary,
We live on a gravel road on the outskirts of town.

It's quiet and underdeveloped, and not too many people live near us, so the assholes of the world like to dump their trash here.

It's infuriating, and we try to do our part to clean it up or call the city to collect what we cannot handle.

One day, we discovered this discarded vintage doll pram on the side of the road.


And we carted it away with the initial intent to clean up the area, but soon after I became intrigued by the details on the pram.


It's rusted out and missing its connecting screws. There are tears in the lining, and while I research it, it sits in my garage. My husband wants to pitch it. I'm considering moving it to my porch to serve as a planter, and spite those who litter.

The V-shape reminds me a lot of an old Corvette logo, but the horizontal line across it with the spokes resemble more of a crown. There are also crowns on the umbrella shade. I wonder if the pram was given away with the sale of cars or something as a promotion. Crown Victoria? I'm not having any luck, which is bringing me to the disappointing conclusion that I'm making a bigger deal out of it than I should.

Still, I'm putting this out there in case a random search leads me to an answer to a curiosity I've had.

PSA - STOP LITTERING YOU FILTHY ANIMALS. If you can exert the energy and effort to drive outside of town to find a spot to dump, then you can expel that same energy to properly dispose of it.
