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

I remember as a kid watching a 7 series BMW turn up outside the neighbours house one Sunday morning.

3 bloody great big blokes got out, two stood either side of the neighbours sons  almost new 5Gt turbo, the third got in it and drove it away, the other two got back in the BMW and followed it.

I suspect it wasn't a High street lender that financed it.

 

I see the son about sometimes. Still leading a chaotic life it would seem, he is either smartly dressed, driving something new and German, or looking homeless and driving a beaten up Picasso.

Spotted this outside the smaller of one of the prisons in the Isle of Wight:

No plates or indication of identification anywhere that I could see.

Not a getaway car, then.

That Saxo's got more stuff growing on it than mine! 🙂 

Wonder if there's anything growing inside it?

Probably belongs to someone on the Island who 'has gone away' for a while or the inmates plan didn't go to plan.

Ha, reminds me of a story a mate of mine told me a while ago. He's a prison officer and he was exchanging amusing tales of the 'industry' with a couple of the other chaps when one of them came up with this one. 

He was working at an open prison (don't recall which one) and was with a couple of other PO's processing the latest 'customers'. The memorable one was a quite well off chap who'd been convicted of fraud or somesuch white collar-type crime. They went through the usual admission procedures and all was well, then the main man asked the new con:

"OK, all clear? Do you have any questions?"

"Oh yes, erm, where can I park my car?"

<Silence, cue PO's looking at each other, mystified> "Sorry? Come again?" (ie: are you taking the piss?)

<Sighs> "Where do I park my car? Are there spaces inside of do I just leave it in the car park outside?"

To cut a long story short, the guy was totally serious, turns out he thought an open prison meant he only had to be there at night and weekends, he's be free to come and go during the day to continue his business activities! Yes, really. 

He really blew up shouting for his lawyer when he was calmly informed that it doesn't work like that. He had a rude awakening that day and his entitled attitude apparently didn't do him too many favours inside either. Doubt those he cheated would be sad to see this!

This has languished in a garden near me for some time. The house is on a busy road, so its hard to get a good look at it - or photo for that matter - but I managed to snap this recently and it looks like someone has had a go at removing some of the grime from the bonnet. I would guesstimate the house - which is in a similarly forlorn state - to be worth about a million quid, so there is no doubt a sad story behind how both got into this state. Before long it will be gone from the garden and I'll be kicking myself for not inquiring about its availability :(

Possibly someone who's trying to stay in the house even though he/she/they can't afford the mortgage they took out in the first place to help buy the property? There seem to have been a spate of these reported in the Irish papers in recent months.....

I think in this case there is an elderly person living in the house who can't manage to maintain neither car nor house on their own anymore. I'm nearly sure I've seen residential nurses come and go from the house in the past.
