More performance VX junk, non-standard colour? Save for spoogey rims, looks quite good :oops:

More nice pics there :D

This looks like Europa Blue, only offered on Astra Coupe Turbos IIRC.

Its crying out for that yellowy-orange colour Vauxhall offered on its sporting models in the 80's, and some original Vaux 3-spokers 8)

Shame, seeing as this was one of those yards with myriad scrap lying around that I wouldn't have minded checking out. Guess it'll all get cleared and 200 houses shoved on the site.

Keep the Ford Cargo pics coming :D I rarely see these now, save for the occasional Horse transporter.When working as the workshop f**kabout, a I remember quite a lot of the 7.5 ton models coming into the haulage company garage in the mid 90's for servicing, and I remember them as being easy to work on. They were a piece of piss to grease, which was a job I was always given and hated doing on the Volvos and Erf's. The only downside was that the cab had no hydraulic tilt mechanism on it and the floors rotted badly.

Excellent stuff as usual ! The Ssangyong thing is just beyond words...Loving the Cargos as well, first 7.5t I ever drove was a A plate Cargo car transporter. Had a slight air leak so the brakes tending to lock on and didn't like releasing the handbrake. Only way to get the brakes to unlock was to sit revving it to death until it built enough air pressure back up. Not ideal or very sociable when you are delivering cars around residential areas I can tell you.

These things were stockpiled for use as summer rental cars and probably registered quite a while after production ended; still, I should imagine that this one will have done at least ten seasons now :lol: (incidentally I think there's a choice of colours too!!)

Ha ha! A Dennis Eagle dust cart I used to drive had the same problem. Caused merry hell picking my way though the Glastonbury Festival site when recycling cardboard there. Kept locking the brakes and I couldn't get folk to understand that I couldn't move until pressure built up again. I ended up surrounded by angry hippies! :shock:

Afraid not. I think it had been MODDED hence why I wasn't all that bothered about it. Here though is a more original example from page 3 of this thread, I have a funny feeling I have since seen this one in an abandoned vehicles compound however.

Sorry for the wank photo quality by the way; the combination of a dying Sony Ericsson W800i and the poor light in the ground floor of a public multi-storey car park does not make for quality images.

Alright Shitmates?

Although I was raised on big RWD motors in these days of sky-high petrol prices I'm begining to lust after 80's hot-hatches but ONLY if they are original. This neatly brings me on to the subject of the metallic black Astra GTE mister craig snapped, I recently saw this beauty in a secret location and after having a sniff around was gobsmacked by its fantastic condition inside and out and it was a 16v to boot.

With moist pants I did admirably track down the gentleman in question and imagine my disappointment when told that it was going to have its engine rippped out the very next day and probably be scrapped. Such a shame-I can't remember the last time I saw a nice non-barry'd one of these.

It was originally towed away for whatever reason so there wasn't a logbook, a real shame as it was lovely in every respect-clock showed 36k although how genuine I don't know.

I weep I really do.

A definite drop in the amount of old toss rattling around on the roads of late, no doubt something to do with the removal of a vehicle import tax and its replacement by a 3% VAT-style general duty. Which, annoyingly, has been applied to things that are exempt in the UK like food and public transport fares, but has reduced the on-the-road price of Range Rover Sports and other gas guzzlers. Cheaper new cars = shite further down the food chain becomes even more valueless/less justifiably worth repairing. Anyhoo:

Posted Image
Shite_Meister may already have posted this one? From time to time there's other interesting stuff parked next to it as well.

I think this has also been posted by one of you who visited the island a couple of summers ago, or perhaps there's another similar one around too.

Occasionally a decent-looking UK car falls on hard times and ends up abandoned, probably to save on paying fees to register it here. This Rover coop in the same spot as the black D-reg Escort RS Turbo I saw a number of years ago now, which stayed intact on flat tyres until the night a "shift it within 7 days or we will" notice appeared in the local paper, the next day a window had been bricked and the Recaros had walked.

Haen't seen any abandoned cars for ages, due to the scrap price and stuff but a few years ago I came across this quite a lot. I remember a very nice Allegro 3 (i think it was an X reg) was left on our street. Looked in nice condition with unfaded red paint and generally rust free, and I admired it for about 4 weeks before realising it had no tax on it and that it had been abandoned... after about 6 weeks the council spotted it and put an 'abandoned vehicle' notice on it. within 48 hours it had no glass and every panel was dented. The council hiabbed it a few days later. :(

Strange how the Clubman estate appears to (almost) be faring a little better than the Fiesta, which is weird. I love the early (pre77?) Clubman estates with the faux-wood down the sides.

This must be about the same age too going by the hubcaps and the squared off font of the '1000' badge.
