The two linked above are horrific, especially the Lada. What a state they are in!

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
Nice to know. Why would anyone keep an Austin Cambridge and them neglect it like that? Maybe bought in need of a [serious] resto.

Here's another angle.


Felecia is probably scrapped. They are a dying breed

2 Citroens, been there for years, don't think they've been moved at all. One of them was full of boxes and random stuff:

yikes what a find!
Although I may have found something similar...



A load of old JDM stuff, unregistered, abandoned.
There's a unit behind there that does lots of drift cars, these do move occasionally to be replaced by others. I used to work at Volvo Penta just opposite until we moved to Warwick.

Saw this in Rhodes this year, pistonheads said it was a Ford something or other.



This one was in Kefalonia, the Greek islands I've been to seem to be full of abandoned cars, a shame really.

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.
I can't remember the name, does it look familiar?

I drive past this blokes house all the time, he must repair Saab's for a living as he's always out there underneath one, the classic rangie has been on 2 or 3 different locations on the drive, i've often thought of knocking and making a cheeky offer, but given the guys obvious mechanical skills it's probably a rot-box if it's laid there untouched!:-

It is, from what I know it's been parked up for about 15 years, sadly I doubt it's worth doing anything with, I'm going up in the next few weeks so will have a proper look and see if I can get some info on it

I couldnt have a rusting hulk on my drive, its just so trampy, I have a mate who just shuffles his broken sheds round, he has a house with a long but narrow plot and room up the side for probably ten cars, it drives his wife mad, for me they have to be running and driving or at least clean if not.

This thread reminded me of the below Peugeot:



About 6 weeks ago, the owner parked it in the pub car-park right next to our house. He hasn't been back to it since. I have just checked the DVLA site and lo-and-behold the MOT expired 22.10.16 and the Tax at the end of November. I guess the owner has conveniently forgotten about it, rather than making any arrangements to get it back on the road or scrapped. It's the pub's problem now, of course.

There's a second part to this story. Several months ago the same car was left for a couple of weeks on our private road directly outside our house. There was a business card with a name visible on the dashboard, so I called the company and the HR lady informed that the guy had recently left the company, but that she still had his contact details and would pass on the message. Sure enough, a couple of days later he came back and drove the car away.

What sort of person just dumps their car on somebody else's property for weeks on end?

my mate dumped his car on a car park, it was behind some old people bungalows. Was there for about a year before he sold it on.
