This Dolomite is on Acorn Avenue off London Road just in case we haven't exhausted Braintree's hopeless cases. Also there's a overgrown garden of vans up Skitts Hill but nothing old enough to be interesting to me so I never bothered getting a picture. Yes, I know we've had this photo before..

My brother used to live in the bungalow on the corner of Skitts Hill and Orchard Drive. The bloke with the garden full of vans had a garage at the back of my brothers garden, and that had a Vito buried in the brambles for years.

The bloke owns the very busy van sales place in  Bradwell on the A120 between Braintree and Coggeshall

I passed a fucked and abandoned looking Subaru Imp yesterday on Aqueduct street in Preston. Missing lots of bits, but there are a few backstreet garages round there so it may just be "resting".
No photo as I didnt have time to circle back and stop. Might swing by today on my way to the nick.

Woodgate, Birmingham;

20190906_164456.thumb.jpg.124492a5016482cfd77c2a662eb48873.jpg20190906_164630(1).thumb.jpg.d73fd4831c7b91e5adcef2ba01d0f8be.jpg20190906_164632.thumb.jpg.da92ff7b7a8f70f8b25f2e91e6a50c36.jpg

Strangely the numberplate doesn't show on DVLAds. Streetmaps shows an earlier image where it looked recently parked up, clean and with its proper Vauxhall wheel trims. Now it has a massive dent in the drivers door and wheel trims and wing mirror cover are missing.

Maybe the plate has been taken off and it's on retention?

 

I've heard that the price for scrap cars is at a bit of a low point so hopefully our sport of snotter spotting will get a much needed boost with extra abandoned shitters.

Yo any of you essex chod spotters, I saw a black B reg Orion 1.6 Ghia that has literally sunk into someones front lawn this morning in East Tilbury, along Princess Margaret Road.  Annoyingly I didn't have my phone on me, but if any of you essex shiters happen to be down that way its well worth a look, it has badly faded and gone green in places, Must have been there a good 20 years judging by how much the wheels have sunk into the grass. Local 'YTW' plates too.

That's to prevent it from being towed away for no tax. If they are unable to read the vin number or the reg plate they have no way of checking if it is taxed or not

Or maybe they're just waiting for new plates to turn up from Romania,  after which the car be on the move again....

Only if cloned. Legally it's impossible to register an imported car here if the said car doesn't have a Romanian CIV, which is impossible to get without the car being physically present in one of the Romanian Automotive Register's offices.

I must take a photo of a Romanian-plated RHD Audi A5 near me which bears exactly the same plate as a UK-plated Audi A5 on DVLA....

Minor excitement here this afternoon - the Citroen left behind after the woman smashed its window (and then got evicted) gained a wheel clamp, courtesy of the guy in the 69 plate flatbed, who then took lots of pictures of the damage on it

He was then heard having a heated discussion with the woman over the phone about getting the keys, before this arrived

Up, up and away!

Guessing it had some sort of finance outstanding on it.

Can't pay - we'll take it away. Simples
