Hi everyone, I have been away from this forum for quite some time (due to hideous computer problems :roll: ) but I`m glad to say I`m back and thought I would add a few spots from around Cornwall since I was last on here...
a very tidy VW Derby, one lady owner from new and only 20 odd thousand miles on the clock!

this Volvo has been there for as long as I can remember...possibly the worst example I`ve ever seen!

The rope has been holding a tarpaulin on, that's why it's rusted so badly.

Volvo is mega! I'd love to find space to just stick something so impressively rusty, just to watch it slowly return to the earth!Whats the Nissan? I'm quite liking these odd Nissans - wouldn't mind either a Cube or Pao if I had a use for one or the neccesary cash!

There was one of those Nissans on ebay last year (maybe it was posted on the RR 'bay thread). From the back it looks like a Hummer (though you'd have to be up a ladder to get it at that angle. Then from the front it looks like a Wartburg, and it is dwarfed by the other moderns around it!Good spots, get the others posted, buddy! :D

The Nissan is a Rasheen, which is based on a Japanese Sunny platfrom so it's definitely not a big car. Certainly not a hardcore off-roader either.

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.

Not strictly an update on my fleet, or even pics of my banger shite but I did take some pics of this old mk4 Zephyr that I bought last year, it`s a 1970 2.5 V6 auto with column shift, I bought it from another banger driver with the intention of racing it but on closer inspection it maybe saveable, to be honest it`s more work than I`m willing to take on as I have enough with the current fleet :roll: there is some rather nasty tin worm in both A posts and the R/H/F inner wing but other than that it`s pretty solid (floors, inner and outer sills etc...) it starts, runs, drives and the brakes work, anyone interested? 250 quid would buy it or I`m open to offers/deals/px`s etc... for anything old or interesting be it track fodder or road going :D

That Rover is cracking. Top find.Those old Z Cars rot like buggery on th A's. Many moons ago I offered to weld one for a mate, and the welder blew HEE-UGE holes in what was left of the floor.

I love those big tank zephyrs. Marvellous. If I had one i'd fit a Sierra twink and 5-speed then use it every dat.
