That Prairie looks mint!

Just what I thought, but judging by the tattered trap it must've stood for a bit. Laurel looks tidy too, 300C estate might look better with a set of wheeltrims on (I have three). They're very amusing cars.

The home of one previous owner Japanese cars:

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

And a couple of modern Toyotas

I'm trying to get my head round both a 51-plate vehicle being 'shite' (although it clearly is!), and a 51-plate vehicle being unlicenced and dumped by the side of the road. I've never ever owned a car anywhere near that new, even my daily driver reliable euro familybox is a good 3 years older!How old is that design anyway? is that the old Visa front end?

C15 ran from '85 to 2004. Yep, that's a Visa front end. It must have been exceptionally profitable for Citroen towards the end of it's life, with the tooling long since paid for!I agree with the sentiment of not being able to understand the abandonment of such a new vehicle - personally, I've not owned anything newer than a 1999 S-reg, or the wife's 51-plater (which I paid for)! Mind you, I've not owned anything older than a 1978 S-plater either...

They bought it off ebay and i a-framed it to them when i went to collect my green Maz 929. But, despite having an MOT cert with the ink still wet on it, it had loads of MOT failure faults (like no sidelight bulbs or holders, amongst loads of other stuff) and the enigne was not happy. They drove it home from where I met them with half the lights not working and having to refill the cooling system every half hour. The seller of the van said he was very sorry and would bring a replacement van to Calais for them to do a swap. But, then never made it back to Calais as the engine died and the seller feller could not find them. So, they abandoned the van, must be getting on for 5-6 months ago, i'm amazed its still there. I might go and get it back and fix it up, doubt my mum would want it back though!

That is quite a coincidence, I was shocked at how shitty it was and yet so new, equally if it was sat in this country for 4-5 months there would be nothing left, hence me being from these parts thinking of nothing more than having it away! It is so close to the port to be almost worth dragging it back, the doors are open and the spare is still sat in the back and the instruction books in the front and apart from the engine being f*cked it looks solid!

Thats amazing, I think the key is hidden in the sunvisor or glovebox or something, would be well easy to go and grab it back again, could get an engine off the bay for £50 i'm sure. Also needs new headlights, assorted bulbs + holders, wipers, exhaust hangers, and the spare wheel is off my Talbot Alpine, I'd like that back!

Wow. I thought (naively) that in this day and age of computerisation, dodgy MOTs were a thing of the past. But then my 405 saloon got a no-advisories ticket without any rear brakes or handbrake to speak of, and rear subframe bushes that were threatening to release the rear axle!The MOT tester who did that one is in Broxbourne, Herts, if anyone wants a hassle-free ticket experience :roll: :shock: :lol:Has the HG gone on that C15 then? A tenner's worth of K-Seal might get it running again. EDIT: just seen it has the 1868cc late XUD, that engine is a dog apparently. Lob in a 1905cc TD and it would be a flier!

I too made that assumption, I am still not sure in this day and age why anyone bothers with a dodgy MOT, no MOT tester had bothered to look at this old shitter though.They paid £690 for it off the bay I think, which I thought was not bad for a usable 7-yr old van with a new ticket on it. However it turns out it was the worst £690 they ever spent, and factoring in fuel costs, train tickets and hotel bills after it let them down, it must owe them close to a grand.

They seem to have a completely different mentality in france with regard to abandoned vehicles, when i worked in the alps, all the abandoned seasonaires cars just got dragged to the middle lift station by the authourities, and left there. You found that any with fuel still in, a Renault 11 TXE and a Granada Mk3 spring to mind, soon reappeared in the town having been driven up by locals after a night on the Ricard, only to be abandoned and delivered back to the lift station. I think the 11 TXE reappeared in town about 7 times, gradually becoming more and more battered as most of the time it ended up stuffed into something as part of its journey.You certainly find round the ports there's a huge amount of vehicles abandoned, dont know why people ever bother hitching out of calais, as a short walk round the backstreet's normally reveals an unlocked UK reg'd car with the keys on the seat/glovebox/sunvisor.

Stick in a 1.9 16 valve from a BX or Mi16. Or a 2.0 turbo from an XM.Now that'd be interesting. But you wouldn't want to crash it. :shock:

I wonder how come that date of liability was so long ago then, surely not driven into the ground in 28 months flat then laid up until sold?
