Oh yeah - this one too.

Heap of dung if you ask me! (And that RS badge looks dubious).

I like this, but a little too chavved up for me.

 

Theres an early one of these in a yard in Cradley Heath, I cant get in the right place to take a pic as its too far in the yard and in a corner so very difficult to picture.

S'only the badges and backbox, 30 minutes with a spanner and some alcohol wipes would sort that!

 

I must admit to quite fancying a Mk4 Cabrio at some point.... I'm crap at hairdressing and I'm hetrosexual :wink: but they do appeal. Maybe not the runout model in dusky mauve with matching leather though, that's a bit too much.

Out and about in Sherwood again last night - many abandoned houses and cars abound!

Here's some examples - all from the one wrecked house...

Can anyone put a name to the decrepitated machine round the back?

 

Rover. Fairly dead I reckon!

Another dead Rover, and the back of the unknown vehicle.

Unidentified - anyone??

This is great!

All the 3 Series survivors I've come across are the post 1981 facelift models which asides from the odd bit of trim are undistinguishable from the last ones. Rust killed the early ones, but I assume Volvo sorted out the corrosion issue by then.

 

I also see the link between the car and grover - its the eyes I think.

SO.  Dropped in at Podders' Scrapyard yesterday on the way home from work.

Couple of wee bits and piece3s that might be of note to some?

Can anyone remember who owns the stunning white Xantia on here?

 

This one has a stay of execution for a matter of days.  Looks like it was bang tidy before it met it's fate.  Very clean inside etc.

And finally, our old Transit from work.  Finally met it's end.  39,000 genuine miles on it's (correct) engine.  Somebody got a good 'un!!
