Astonishing!! :shock: There's a book in there for a good photographer and a sympathetic publisher!! Wouldn't know where to start with picking a fave, but when was the last time you saw a mating pair of Mk 1 Cortinas? :lol:

Been past there many times but I have never been in, as Horopito consists entirely of 1 scrappy and maybe a house or two ! But I could spend hours just wandering. I have heard the new owners cleaned it up a bit but they were aware of what they had so left the "interesting" stuff alone. Must stop in on my next trip to Wanganui.

Apart from the fact that the early Corona is a Crown... excellent pics! I'm never going to wash my car again.
