Are all those Mercs scrappage cars or just the result of hoarding that went a touch OTT?

 

Hoarding I think - there's always been loads of Mercs there as long as I can remember

That’s Mercedes Bill’s place in Billericay. He used to have a workshop round the back along with a part worn tyres shop, but it all went up in flames 10+ years ago. He used to break the Mercs for parts but all of the rarer stuff went up in the fire - loads of stacked light saloons etc.

Not quite abandoned but a former award winning SD1 on C0Part is almost as good as dumped.
V8 Manual, 49000 miles.
A bit sorry on one corner.

I found this one in about 2002, where my old VW panel van had been hiding in a barn.

There was all sorts of interesting bric-a-brac in the barn too...
