According to toomany2cvs, these have been sitting since the early/mid 90's.

Second:




Volvo 440si. Untaxed since March 07. Has a "For Sale £50" board in rear window (just about visible in the street view image)

This bond bug has been there since at least 1996, and considering i would have been 8 at that point, it could have been there a lot longer as i don't remember much before that hehe

No idea what the car under the sheet it... i wonder if PH knows?

Here's another. The classic, has moved and is now covered in green moss, and the Skoda Felecia is gone.
No idea what the classic car is.

That Rover is a shame. I'd love a Vanden Plas EFi

I'd say it was a Morris Oxford or one of it's badge engineered cousins.

Apropos this thread, there is a V70 Estate "abandoned" on the A20 between Swanley & Sidcup. It's in a lay-by on it's own, not near anything/any buildings, been there about 3 weeks now (assuming it still is, it was on Friday). I actually saw a DVLA van parked behind it one morning, which ws odd, I didn't think they were much interested in abandoned stuff as long as they have an address to send the SORN fine to?

Not sure.
We can't have a pic though since it's only been there for 3 weeks.
I think the cars in this thread are more of the neglected type, on owner's property, rusting away.
