Abandoned, Dumped and Forgotten!

Recommended Posts

I thought I would expand this thread for anyone to post those lost and abandoned Old Skool Fords

Searching for parts can be an adventure. How far will you go to get that elusive original part?

To be fair I've seen worse than that for sale on Ebay UK labelled as a barn find!

Theyd make great posters if not a little sad to see.

I think with less oxygen, it might rust slower than if left out exposed to the elements. 

Could be wrong though.

One thing I have noticed in putting together images for this thread is that almost all appear as stunning pieces of photographic art. Even as you say a little sad.

A spot the difference puzzle. Is the bottom image a different car or van or the same car as the first two?

Nah - more likely a lamp post or a tree - we have lots of those over here and even though they are wood, metal generally comes off worst!

I think that might be the Capri that hit my mother in law. Is it in S.Wales.

She had to have a week off work when that hit her in the late 80s.

I don’t think I’d like to meet your inlaw!! If she can do that much damage when she wasn’t looking, what can she do when she puts her mind to it.....lol

Your Mother in Law? That begs the delicate question was there a Capri in your list of cars in the late 80's? 😮
