Guys. I know its bad for to start a new thread for a single spot, but look what I saw parked on the roadside in Somercotes this morning. (I urge you to click on the pics for maximum appreciation). I feel like a flippin zoologist who's just photographed a friggin tasmanian Tiger in the wild.

 

What else can I say? I'm off to the George & Dragon to celebrate this paradigm-shift in 4-wheeled outright stubbornness.

Look at the rear arches on it man.

 

IMG_20170225_150123015_HDR.jpg

 

. I'm not kidding when I say that the whole arse end of this car has been squashed out of shape by presumably DECADES of carrying loads that are far too heavy for it. The rear wings have splayed aout above the top of the arches as if there is a flippin hinge section in the roof above the rear doors. The rear door aft gaps have completely gone.

 

IMG_20170225_150153098.jpg

 

It did have a load of something in the boot, covered over with a blanket, I'm guessing it was either gold bullion, housebricks or a pallet of osmium. The sills looked like they were on probably their 3rd set of cover sills crudely hammered on over the old ones and tacked along the top & bottom edges.

 

Just fucking WOW. I so want to see what the trenchcoat-wearing old bastard who drives this, actually looks like. I might g and camp out in the Co-op car park over the road and try and pap him.

 

Good night.

Applied twice annually.

 

The MOT history makes for DIRE reading. Seems it's been in a state of fucked for over a decade. I'm assuming there is no option for an MOT tester to just say 'it's fucked in every way possible'.

I estimate this car needs £3000 maybe £4000 spending on it to get it rite and when this is done it will be wotrth about £1500!!

TADTS, it's just that they normally either got scrapped or welded up into an approximation of the right shape.

I knew a bloke that nicked slates off old buildings to sell to reclamation yards, he had a succession of Transit pickups with D -Series springs or summat, eventually the chassis snapped like a 4 year old Navarra. Maybe ihes gone even more stealth and its him.

Oooph, that's a spot and a half is that Bol.

 

I reckon it has some rear arch repairs grafted on at some time, plenty of wag and some re-sculpturing.  

 

Probably no chance of the rear shocks getting a advise for 'misting' the oil has probably long gone.

 

Mk5's have quite a following these days, as do most model 'Tinas'.  I can see this one on the bay in a few years time, advertised as 'mint' and 'well maintained'

I'm just wondering how the rear side windows haven't simply popped out. Certainly, if one broke I'd wager you'd never get another one in!

 

That aside, I'm genuinely awe-struck by that thing having a current MOT 8)

I think the weight of the under seal is pulling the car down, and the side windows are now structural bracing members. Incredible how it's managed to stay on the road in that state
