That is Sharpcliffe Hall, near Ipstones in the Staffordshire Moorlands. Still partly occupied, amazingly. Remember when Capris looked like that? :D

Tim, where's that incredible fire victim with the AC Aceca (??) out front?

Yep, that's an Aceca! I've seen photos of that place before, but never that one, and I cannae remember where it is. It's been on here before though I think.

Mine, but I don't think that excludes it, especially as neither the house nor the car are mine any more. This is the house I grew up in from four months old, and where my father lived at his death in 2005. The copcar was my consolation purchase (off ebay, blind) which turned out to be a much bigger project than I expected or could handle. When I finally cleared it out I sold the house to my stepson as a project, and he's done a lovely job of restoration and sympathetic upgrading. So it's still in the family. I put the car back on ebay after two years; it went to Wales and was back on ebay within a couple of months. I suspect it's dead now, but at least I can say I had a black-and-white American police car, believed ex-LAPD, which is something I always wanted.

Ah Mavisbank that's the place!
I've only seen a couple of photos of that place before, but this guy has loads on his photostream.
This one is the caravan where the owner lived after it burnt down - that white coupe is a 1st series Bond Equipe GT :shock:

And here's that Aceca again. Check out the rest of them, they are all great. I'd like to see more from before it was gutted but still being used as a yard though.

I've fiddled with the picture a bit and this is the best I can do. Doesn't really capture the horror of the car though.
