A week later, and things were looking a little bit better. Drier, at least.

Very nasty bit of grot at the rear sill area. Look at that corrosion, it's outrageous. Horrid even.
These Escorts really could rust.

The interior wasn't too bad, considering it had been underwater for over 30 years.....

 

It seems to have had a long bath in freshwater, rather than saltwater/seawater. I'm thinking that, if it had been the latter, we might not be seeing very much left....

This evening there was a very tidy J plate Cavalier parked on the side of the A4 not too far from where I live. Looked straight, and a notice on the dashboard too, presumably saying why it was there. Should have gone for a closer look but it's a bit nuts to park there!

I hope it doesn't get interfered with this evening.


Was recovered. Had broken down. That cavalier was on Ebay ages and ages ago....had that IRAN plate on it didn’t it...

Need to know more about the Escort!

Is this a true story? Looks fucked on the first few pictures.

Why was it under water?

How did the steering wheel fall off?

Who found it?

Full story please ☺

No-one knows how or exactly when it went into the water. It's a true Mystery From The Deep.

pyiupLC.jpg

The steering wheel and other bits are believed to have been removed by a family of magpie-octopus who had lived nearby at one time but had moved away in a hurry, leaving their hoard of Mk1 stuff behind.

The current owner, a Chinese gentleman, Mr. Ho Lee MacKrell, had been fishing in the area with one of those magnetic fishing things on a line and had been advised by locals there was something interesting down there which had been there since the late 1980s. He went out hoping to maybe catch a Mexico or a Sunbeam Ti but still wasn't too disappointed with his catch. He has a nickname for the car, it's "Deep Purple".

It is of course all true, you read it here first :-)

Febreze is pretty good stuff , but for really wet interiors it's best to put lots of those little bags of silica or whatever, that's what my mate did with his Bugatti.

Before

After

It did take a couple of weekends though. And admittedly he had to grow another steering wheel.

There is an abandoned MG-ZT on the A1 southbound at Langford (just past Biggleswade).  It looks like a nice one, rear spoiler on an 02 plate and body work is tidy.

 

It's got a notice on it already, so I reckon if someone wanted one for panels etc nobody would mind if it 'disappeared'.

There is a Mitsubishi Magna dumped on the side of the road near my house

 

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/c...

 

(Not the actual car, same colour and spec though)

 

It has some light damage to the rear bumper and the driver's wing, police aware tape tied to the driver's mirror in the usual fashion.

I bumped into the local copper in town today and "enquired" with him to see if it could perhaps be saved. He said that the keys were in it but when he tried to start it was clear why it was dumped, "Engines' rooted, mate".

Shame, as it is a high spec model with the rare factory alloys (these might* be liberated** before it is hauled away) and all the bells and whistles.

 

Gone today

 

Some cheeky sod pinched the alloys before I could!

Found this old thing in Blackburn the other week. Don't know how long it's been there, but MOT history reports mileages that I did not know were possible in 80s Renaults.

^ Would guess it was a typo after having seen the history.
Even though, that's an impressive mileage for an old Regie :-)
And an interesting car.

Was helping friends move house earlier today, using a 'borrowed' milk-round Transit swb van.
286K miles on it since mid 2012. Crikey. Not my van but van still in service by original owners.

(Was just passing comment, there's a high mileage thread on here for that sort of thing).

Not sure whether this was some sort of spontaneous combustion, or nicked and then dumped... but I doubt it'll be back on the road anytime soon. Spotted in Belfast the other morning; it still had the alloys on it at 8:30 am, but gone by 5.30pm...

I work in one of the buildings overlooking that...... The locals frequently burn out cars belonging to non residents who park there, every other month there's a car on fire.

People carry on parking there because it's the only free parking so close to the city centre.

Lots of tension between the tenants living in the social housing and anyone trying to develop the surrounding brownfield sites into office blocks....... They want the housing executive to buy up the sites and build more social housing.

Personally I could think of nothing worse than living in the centre of Belfast
