The red beamer recently vanished but the silver one has been there for as long as I can remember. Dunno the mindset of keeper, perhaps he thought one day he would get round to fixing them?

This replica Countach (and replica E-type behind it) had been parked at this address for years from what I could tell.
They disappeared in the last few years so assumed scrapped or sold.

Found a thread on cliosport.net about that one.
VTF 684Y is a 1983 red 3.6 litre Rover 3200 coupe.
Looks too good to be scrapped imo, currently SORN.

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.
ISWYM. Can't take pics as I'm on the bike every time I pass it! But agreed, it's not abandoned on someone's drive, although definitely seems abandoned.

The Volvo? I'll check next time I go past (probably tomorrow).

I know someone who says he was offered it to fix up but the owner wanted far too much money for it.

Stayed in an apartment which was part of a country manor in Bude, this was in the back garden:

Penstowe manor?

If so they have been there since 2000/2001 I remember them when i worked there as a student doing the summer. Used to be a blue pickup one too.

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.
Austin Cambridge
There was that and the Oxford (wonder where they got their names from)
One had larger tail fins than the other.
Then there was a VP and Westminster versions IIRC
They were current when I was a kid but even then I wasn't interested in them
