I always wanted a tyre swan and was lucky enough to be given a forlorn specimen. I just finished restoring it, grinding decades of paint layers off, repainting and giving it new life as a much needed herb planter. My 8 year old has named him Herbet and he was just completed and planted last night!. He was found in Bayswater Vic and has found a forever home with us in Langwarrin Vic.
Here are some before and after pics.
PS...Need to find him a mate...it's hard to stop at one!
