Saw this on Youtube some weeks back. Apparently the owner was looking to sell and downsize due to personal circumstance. 

There was a preview to an auction recently where potential bidders could view the cars before placing a bid.

But my favourite was nestled in someone's from garden trying to make the most of its camouflage - ex Southern Water 109

These aren't dumped as such the Honda is my wife's and the manual twin turbo 300zx is my sons.

But both have been forgotten about down at my father in law's.

Only seeing this now but I might be interested in that 300ZX...🤷‍♂️

Market Gates multi-storey car park in Great Yarmouth has about 40 cars seemingly abandoned in there.
The red peugeot is missing a rear wheel and on a scissor jack.ea16407f0def20b1650546da983167b9.jpg

Ooo that’s worth a trip out…..

A 66 plate Ford Ecosport has finally been removed from a main road in Cheltenham (Princess Elizabeth Way, a very busy route from the north to the west of town, and not a road you’d easily dump an old banger in) having sat in the same spot since at least December. 

I can only assume the owner died, as it would have been worth fixing no matter what had gone wrong with it, and a finance firm would have repossessed if the owner had stopped payments. It was only removed after the Untaxed vehicle stickers appeared a couple of weeks ago.

They aren't actually abandoned; the owners are all still stuck in the queue in the Post Office...

Many of these have ended up on eBay, I recognise the location.

 

These we’re spotted on a recent trip to Watford/ Croxley Green in North London. There were plenty more old heaps seemingly abandoned on people’s drives but I felt too conspicuous taking photos. It’s weird seeing a quite affluent area full of so many abandoned motors, maybe people here don’t need the £400 or so Car take back would pay so are happy for them to fester.

This has turned up close to me in Stoke on Trent. It’s probably not fair to class it as abandoned as it’ll probably get removed fairly quickly. It’s the second car around here that’s spontaneously combusted recently, I remember there was a fad years ago where kids set fire to the plastic bumpers on cars, hopefully it’s not becoming a fashion again!

I managed to get around to retracing my earlier routes and grabbed some of those I'd clocked - as well as a few I missed 1st time..... New Addington proudly presents..... 

Hopefully the beds were in a better state than the delivery vehicle...

Couple of doors along my favourite - what's the plural of Lotus? Lotii?

And again only a couple of doors further

Can I ask where that is? DM me if you’d prefer. I’ve no intention of pillaging owt, am just curious.

All the above vehicles are on the old airfield site at Upper Heyford, Bicester. 

There's security to get in so no-one's going pilfering, probably why they're all untouched still

Looks like a Merc to me.  E Class?  1980, going by the W suffix.
