The middle one also looks a bit like an Abarth 750SS, that looks more like an engine cover than a boot lid; but some of the details are different from the Zagato bodied ones.

But whatever they are, OMG (again) :roll:

This is near me in Worthing. The entire front garden, from the edge of the pavement to the front window, was completely overgrown, to the point you could barely see the house. Somewhere I have a snap of that Vauxhall in one piece-and there is another car in the garage in front of it.

I remember there being a thread on RR about that Victor, It amazes me how a car can rot away so much, It's in the same league as Rootes Scima Van photos, And those Italian beauties rotten away in that driveway... OMG x10000 :shock:

I'd say that used to be a petrol station, possibly even as recently as the 70s, with a workshop and maybe some kind of used-sports-car operation on the ground floor, all run by some spiv in a sheepskin coat and flat cap. Just a guess of course. :lol:

Wow that Victor is fantastic! There's an old campervan hidden under a huge amount of undergrowth on a driveway near me, but I can only see the top of the coachbuilt body. MK1 Transit or Sherpa maybe?

I'd love to know what was in the garage in front of the FC, and pictures of the Vauxhall in one piece would be great! Love things like this 8)

Somewhere, I think on the A523 but one of the A-roads between Dreby and Stockport just on the edge of the Peak District, is a house all on it's own but with a dozen or so rotten P6s. I went past once. I wish I had stopped but it looked like proper Axe-murder's gaffe so I got scared and ran away.

Can't find it on StreetView. Only thing I can recall was it was in a valley and on the edge of a mega sharp corner.

You're probably right. The shat nav took me cross country from Stockport to Stoke on Trent, probably not the quickest route but it took me past the house. :)

I think it is a GK in the street view pic as it has the vertical back lights, I had never heard of a De Bruynes, was this some post GK revival and I wonder if it did actually sell as there was no feedback given for it?


New to me too. Not as nice as the GK but still nice. A quick google says:

An attempt was made to restart production in 1968 when the rights to the car were bought by an American, John de Bruyne, but this came to nothing, although two cars badged as De Bruynes were shown at that year's New York Motor Show along with a new mid-engined coupé.


£10,000 seems like it might have been a bit of a bargain?

If you want to see shite house/car combos, I recommend using public transport in Wales. Sadly, I was unable to ask the driver to stop every time I saw something shite, but highlights included a Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud 3 languishing on a driveway, and a ratty house with several decaying BXs and GSs on the drive! I may have to return to that area in a rather less public method of transport...

It was a well patina'd Standard Vanguard phase 3? which still looked quite solid, bound to have been cubed by the council though. :cry:
