private plates seem to do that, you can't see the history for the old reg.

The only abandoned, rather than dumped cars that I see near me are outside premises related to fixing vehicles, like this Astra, untaxed since February. Its probably on private land but someone will be getting letters. Diesel so probably some sort of major failure, usual acronyms apply.

Quote from last MOT:

4039 Advisory notice item(s)
no oil in engine before test

It's odd to see cars newer than your own dumped, ready for scrap!

Yes, I find that weird too. 

 

No dumped cars round my way, too posh! Most would probably think my 406 is such if I leave it parked anywhere!

Exactly, it's not even seen it's 10th birthday yet FFS. 

 

Sad to say, for some idiots, the process of neglecting a car starts the moment they pick up the keys and continues until the poor bloody thing gives up and dies whereupon the car is therefore 'A load of crap' rather than the owner being that.

You'd need a second mortgage to get enough cash together to buy these half-wits a clue.

Now scrap prices have plummeted I have seen 3 dumped cars

This is the most recent one, I cannot work out what it is but it made me smile anyway,

Spotted in a posh area very near Wolverhampton

What's dumped in your area?

http://autoshite.com/uploads/monthly_12_...http://autoshite.com/uploads/monthly_12_...

 

 

Very odd, never seen that before. It actually reminds me of an early 90s Crimewatch appeal I saw recently where cut-up carcasses of brand new sporty Fiestas, Escorts etc.. were found strewn across a field (somewhere up North I think?)

 

Interesting to be found near Wolvs too, not too far from here.

 

Carrying on the Midlands theme, personally, I've not seen a lot of street dumped/abandoned stuff for years and very rarely come across them in the UK.

 

So far, all I can find through my albums are these:

 

Odd dashboard seen a few years ago in some grass just off a small country through lane, keep thinking BINI but vents say a Ford product, possibly Fiesta?

Old-new%20Dash_zpsg7pclyhx.jpg

Old-new%20Dash%201_zpszegd2bsn.jpg

 

Saw this in Pershore a few years ago, by where PlasticVanDanAndManJanCanTheNissanMan lives:

Abadonned%20Fiesta%201.8D%20van%20in%20W

Abadonned%20Fiesta%201.8D%20van%20in%20W

 

This was by the first unit to a crummy old industrial estate:

010720122837_zpsrlnsdd9a.jpg

 

The place was a former Vauxhall breakers.

 

Spotted this Punto some years back with a notice slapped on it's screen:

071220124846_zpsydukmtze.jpg

071220124844_zpsfmmpmyan.jpg

071220124843_zpsvrwuquud.jpg

 

Earlier this year I spotted this sad case of a Clio:

20150525_141244_zpspv723bp4.jpg

20150525_141306_zpsvswepkmo.jpg

 

Thats about it. Though I guess what with the price of scrap being on it's arse we'll see more cases of dumped cars. Still, doesn't seem to deter the scrap men. A few days ago whilst in Stourport I saw a large hiab truck rolling by with a clean R-reg Saab 900 on the back with a large dirty 4x4 chassis plonked on top of it :(

Yes-ish, Zafira was in Cradley Heath, just off Powke Lane. There is Steve Tolkien there, the old tat car hoarder.

Brilliant! Cheers for that. I was thinking of picking it up and stashing it away.

I saw a transporter in a lay by full of what I initially thought were banger racing cars, such was the condition of them.

But no, mid 2000s foci, meganes, astrays etc, all utterly smashed up!

We have had a chrysler pt cruiser dumped in our car park at home for 4 months now with the engine hanging out. The bloke who gets angry about the parking is in talks with his mate at the council to get it moved apparently. There's also a BMW that's been sat where I used to park my xm for 7 months now. Again, matey is angry about that too. We know who they belong to as well, and he doesn't live round here, and is a prick so I expressed my agreement with angry car park matey as I serviced his golf the other weekend...

Depends entirely on the circumstances, there are loads of reasons why a car may dumped for so long. Sometimes an owner may have fallen ill/gone missing/spending time at her Majesty's pleasure or simply wants nothing to do with the car due to mechanical/electrical failure.

 

It is up to the Police or council/land owner to find out who the owner is and attempt to bill them, if they cannot be found then the car is taken into possession of the land owner/recovery company and sold on/scrapped.

 

A similar thing happened with an old Merc C-class that was left in a carpark in Birmingham for 2 or 3 years or summat:

 

25BBEEDA00000578-2955692-image-a-61_1424

 

It apparently ran up £14k worth of parking "fines" or whatever. Owners of the carpark couldn't trace the owner so the Merc was eventually taken away and probably scrapped. Merc owners probably did transfer the V5 into a non-entity's name or whatever.

I spoke to Steve recently. He was thinking of a clearout but has never done anything about it. He wants to actually keep all of his stock and get around them at some point. He has unfortunately lost some storage recently and is looking for alternative storage.

 

He tried to get me involved in his business a couple of years ago but I felt that I was doing the work asked with no comeback at all. I still keep in contact with him and will help where I can.

If it is Porsche Cayenne then it might be worth a trip out with my battery grinder, surely a rear quarter for one of those has a value on eBay!

If a cop saw me would I be breaking the law??
