Time for some more spots from the Lake District:

Starting with a Morris Minor 1000. Look how tiny it is compared to the C1!

A Jaaaaaaag in a Rover 100 colour

A pretty late MG ZR

A buggered bug. I love how the rear wings are inside the car. Nice touch

A Type 2 without headlamps. Digging the 70s alloys tho

A Figaro in typically Figaro green

20200912_162418.thumb.jpg.2e93fc91e637a425ed150eb7b4be30c3.jpg

A pretty late MG Midget. I believe all of the last run was in this black.

An XR2 thats so famous it has its own Facebook page. Actually got to briefly speak to the proud owner too!

20200910_172853.thumb.jpg.1c33cca3f5f389cd31dc9683dcdc1277.jpg

And finally, some proper shite. A 1986 Toyota Corolla Executive - one of TWO still on the road!

Scrapyard spotting time - hoorah!

This all comes from a place near Millom which is near Barrow-In-Furness. See? I can do tourism!

20200913_125335.thumb.jpg.b36dbeb07210e0d5e11f9f4181725962.jpg

Might as well start with a pre-facelift Corsa B GLS without wheels. 

20200913_125305.thumb.jpg.4702f469d475b08d2817de91fe5af4e7.jpg

...Then moving on to an old-ass Land Rover which by law every scrappy needs.

20200913_130538.thumb.jpg.0567de68b5eca3408db848ac6467bd4f.jpg

Or if you want a little more class with your rusting pile of shite, how about an original Range Rover?

20200913_125339.thumb.jpg.89396c8cd117e2b85a819ec4a014c4db.jpg

Executive Shite can be had with this 1993 Rover 820 

20200913_130516.thumb.jpg.7918760c8d5bfd2dbd6de85f10d83694.jpg

Or a 1995 Ford Maverick

A pair of F reg Escrots were also in there. Shame as the estate in particular looks pretty solid

20200913_125302.thumb.jpg.fe4eaf7852e5a934d3055104aa453a27.jpg

Almost arrived at peak shite with this photo. A 1995 205 Inca D, a Rover 2200SC and a hiding Renner 19. Also...

20200913_125231.thumb.jpg.9925a9d9117b4dad4cb77f95ee574c28.jpg

TWO ROTTING CORPSES OF MK2 ESCORTS!!!

20200913_125247.thumb.jpg.5a10407eb39a7fcc1eee46b890ac62a2.jpg

And we finish off with an Anglia in a similar condition.

What. A. Place.

Just the ticket for loading up on flatpack, at everyone's favourite Swedish baffling retail ordeal... facelifted Citroen XM VSX estate.

What a beauty. Ten years ago to the day, I was rocking one of these myself... Bought expressly for a house move, it was no stranger to this very same car park, loading up with wardrobes on the roof rails and a fridge freezer in the back... This one's much less scabby than mine, mind.

Gotta be someone on here, surely?

Going by the forward position of the wide repeater, either that's an import from Italy, or it's had wings salvaged from an Italian donor.

Well, it is a left hooker. I thought something looked odd, but couldn’t put my finger on it. I sort of assumed it was a US marker light, but then it would be rectangular and have one at the back. I never knew Italian market cars had to have repeaters that early.

The Italians had indicator repeaters on front wings decades before it became a mandatory requirement across Europe round about 1985. The Italians were actually quite logical in having the repeater lights placed as far forward as possible, whereas the Euro regs put it near the front doors.
