Could not believe this when I drove past yesterday......looks like one of those 'scenes' from the model car boxes...

I'm guessing the house is empty - was tempted to venture further in but decided against it.

i wonder if the only reason they're not been nicked for scrap is that the place looks haunted......and do you want a 'christine' on the back of the transit?

You are Derek Acorah and I claim my prize moneys.
Great scene! What's the car behind the Minor Traveller?

You mean the car that appears in the second picture but can't be seen in the other three even though you can see the garage just fine......cue twilight zone music

I assume the one at the back is an early Minor saloon. Or maybe an MO Oxford??I love places like that. You just know that there's some mad old bat/giffer living there on beans surrounded by cat poo.

There used to be a house like this next door to my primary school, only with a Reliant Regal in the drive.

Always seems to be a Moggy Minor in houses like this, there is/was one such place in Edinburgh owned by a doctor, when he passed away the wife took it pretty bad and just abandoned the place, by about five years ago it hadn't been touched for two decades with the Morris still on the drive. Nice gaff in a decent suburb too, loads of people wanted to buy it

Aye, does happen alot. I am often engaged by the 'vultures' who want to purchase this type of property and turn it into 18million flats / 18 luxury executive homes. Slightly sad, but keeps the wolf from the door. :wink:

Fascinating and sad in equal measures. Bet it’s the only house in the street with its original windows too.I find it even stranger when something newer is left to fester, passed a 70’s bungalow the other day which was mouldering away (sadly with no interesting car visible).There’s an extraordinary place near me where the roof is falling in and the place is completely overgrown yet some old guy still lives there, he very slowly cycles around and still manages the 16-odd miles journey to the local classic car auction/autojumble. There are a few old things visible outside the house and apparently lots in the woods out the back – he was still actively buying stuff quite recently. Would love to have a chat with him.

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL project car (still on hold); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL (was daily driver, written-off and awaiting repair)
1996 Lexus LS400

And a couple of modern Toyotas.
