Superb pictures. I particularly like 2 and 22.
22 even has its fan belt still in place.

Thanks,

Peter Very Happy

Somewhere in the darkest depths of Kent there is a small run-down pub run by a octogenarian.
He very seldom seems to open these days but as long as I have known about it (27 years) he has had a dozen, or so, old cars gently decaying around the premises., these are often sprinkled with newish cars to give the impression that the pub is busy.
The photo shows the few that can be seen from the road but I believe there are many more around the building.
I might risk having to buy a drink there to find out.

UPDATE>>>>>
Regrettably the owner of these cars was taken into care a few weeks ago.
I am told that all but 2 of the vehicles ( a Bentley and a Rover coupe)
received the attentions of a JCB and went for scrap.
Oh well.. 'sic transit gloria', and all that.

Hi all, here's a couple that might be of interest,




The Triumph has been dumped outside the local scrapyard, ready for the crusher...

And on the other side of the road a little further on,





is this '67 White dump truck, seems in good shape, but it's been in this yard with the For Sale sign on it for a loooong time . Almost opposite is another wrecking yard, on their front fence there is a '49 Ford truck, a Dodge pickup from around '54, and their street number is boldly signwritten on a pair of early Vauxhall doors. Around the corner in the next road there is yet another wrecker with a decent mid 50's Rover in their front yard. I'll get some pics of these other cars next time I'm passing, see ya, Col.

Crash bars on a Miura?Whatever next.Either way,still worth restoring.The MB doesn't look too bad either.Amazing how good the chrome looks,compared to the bodywork.Is that Packard(?)a factory 4 door convertible,or did somebody chop the top of a sedan?
The Healey doesn't look so bad at first glance,but it looks like it was cut off behind the doors.The white bit and the roof look to be the back half of another car.What a shame.
That's a beaut lookin' truck,Col.Can't be too many about in such good shape.

some years ago (10 or 12 at least) I knocked on a fella's door, as on his driveway under a sheet was the distinctive shape of a Healey disintegrating into his driveway, often wonder if it got saved. He showed me the bottom of his garden, which dropped down to a river, and you could just make out the remains of an MGA sat alongside a Standard Vanguard. The only easily identifiable bit of the MG was a tiny piece of upper bodywork that had the small MGA oval grille still present.

I know of a shop that has two Lagondas disappearing into the undergrowth behind it, and a driveway that may still have an XK under a tarpaulin slowly corroding away

Hi J/R, saw that Stude pickups healthier brother this morning on the way to a country swap meet, same light blue with a white grille Smile

Here's what turned up at the scrapper's on Friday,






Very solid body, mint floor, apart from a missing radiator, a tidy unit. Already sold when we got there for 500 Aussie discount dollars Smile , so at least it won't get made into Toyota's, cheers, Col.
