  1. Years ago i went to look at an XR2 one of my pals was told about. It was cheap. It was also at the end of a breakers yard and none of the staff wanted to go up to it. We immediately discovered that someone had topped themselves in it and hadn't been found for 'a while'. 

    We looked through the windows, but i could smell it even through them. My pal didn't buy it.

  2. I will try and get some anti tetanus gloves on and reshape it tomorrow, maybe get some better pictures too  It has a steel panel grill. It looks like someone in a JCB has played golf with it as its a bit bent and things like the wiper arms are bent over which wouldn't happen naturally. 

    Although its head is missing, i had to sniff the oil which smells like a well established engineering factory with a slightly blocked toilet facility. Once I get it running I'm going to drive it 4965 miles home. Although I'm only 20 minutes down the road. 

    If you liked that mystery car challenge*, I have a level 6 for yous tomorrow! I know that one is there though but need to take pics before the earth reclaims it.

  3. Awesome speed of identifying skillz!

    I think we have a commercial, as there are the newly discovered remains of a pressed panel front grill, and we've only found 2 doors.

    So long as the V5 and the tags are there m8...

    I was thinking of selling those on the bay as decorative items. Will be searching for the glovebox remains soon to see if there is the remains remaining of the V5. They'd look noice hanging in someone's bathroom I reckon.

  4. We literally just found this. I've had a look over it and she's in a bad way. There's not much left in the way of distinguishing details and I suspect it's had a lot of work* carried out on the lower body as there is a massive aluminium panel bolted across the front. We found the doors not so far away. I reckon its a European 6 volt thing converted over to 12. 









    I am fully expecting this to be immediately identified. I can go back into the jungle though and try find some key features that might remain. Winner gets to collect it, bring a bucket.

    That is Elton's Bentley with Alpine system wedged in there. Wood. (not Elton, the car). I am going back here as soon as I can. Price breakdown:

    3 car drive and museum entry for 2 adults and a kid, a night stay in a rather risky Premiere inn with breakfast chucked in, £200 + fuel and a dinner. That aint bad.

    Can't big this place up enough, it's the most enjoyable fun I've had of recent times and thanks Sam, great guy. https://www.drivedadscar.com/
