Camry (October)

Camry (Kan-Muri) is Japanese for “beyond compare”, which is the truth for the Toyota sedan that now stands ruined and gold-leafed on the familiar corner of McKean and Michael streets, North Fitzroy. How the Camry became camry may have been pictured by street-cams, but no one seems to know why. Was it driven into the flowering gum, or dumped there with forethought? This October it was sighted every day, no number plates but key still in the ignition. Now artists have gone for gold. Soon it will be an icon. There will be protests against removal of this Yellow Peril.
