    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

    Retro rides forum has a great abandoned thread.

    At Essendon station before August there was an abandoned Merc 450 Coupe. Was sorely tempted to skull drag it out of there but moronic PSO's kept hanging around it.

    I dragged one home recently...




    (yes I know my finger is in it, gimme a break my hand is broken).
    Nice!

    Got plans for it?

    You'd think there would be some sort of business/export opportunity taking advantage of these unwanted cars, particularly in such a laissez-faire economy.

    Yep there’s areas in the New Territories with dozens of cars randomly parked and obviously not driven for years. Mix of stolen and dumped. There is no concept with local councils to collect/cleanup.

    Not sure if it's been discussed before, but Dale Earnhardt Jr keeps old NASCAR bodies to rust away on his property in the woods of North Carolina.

    Sitting in a backyard in NSW somewhere. The missing panels have rusted away - not been cut.



    Same car 10 years earlier:
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    That's probably the holiday car, has a Jakarta plate on it. Can't see the expiry date on the plate though. They get rego in 5 year blocks here

    Seems to have Italian door handles, and rust.

    First thought was Lancia Beta, but for the taillights.

    Yep. The dude resolutely will not sell apparently.
    At least the stainless trim looks in good shape.

    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

    The Old Morningside Monaro! It's pretty much a garden feature now.

    There's also this classic on Cavendish Road, corner of Meridian.

    https://www.google.com.au/maps/@-27....7i13312!8i6656

    You can see what's happened - the guy upgraded his VC Valiant for an early Magna after Chrysler went bust in 1980, and they're both still abandoned, in chronological order, in his front yard.

    To be fair the whole house actually looks abandoned, the windows are newspapered up. It would only be better if there was a Mitsubishi 380 behind them both.
