omg that is stunning really makes me want it it's the car i want!


I haven't been to Camden in a good year or so...

It's a bit Hipster for my liking, as far as I'm aware its still there though, don't know who owns it.

I can find it's exact location for you if you'd like.

Yeah cool!

Not saying it's the case with the above -

but the amount of times someone asks about an apparently abandon car that has been in the same spot for years

only to be told it is not for sale - it will be restored - and never was - just left to rot -

sad

We've got a few, not quite abandoned ;) More like laid up tin :P


MG Magnette farina, no good for anything unfortunately, how many left states 7 on the road, 0 sorned. One got raced last year and I've only ever seen 1 on ebay.

Posted Image

Morris Oxford, can't remember the story of how this got there

HML states 11 licensed 0 sorned, but I know where there's loads so I don't think that's true :P

Posted Image

Riley 4/68. Quite a bit of history behind this, unsure what but it was some dealership owners car or something, this is dad's project after the MIni, or his Ford Pop :P

17 registered, 6-8 sorn
Posted Image


My favourite, Austin Westminster a110. Wanted to race this in the All Westy Meeting, but never did, too far gone to restore it aswell :(
32 licensed, 11 sorn
(Mini's sold)

Yeah it's so common they have no intention on restoring them they just don't want to sell it's silly when someone could restore them!

Yup, all ours, MG was a road car that my dad used till it needed some work and at the time the work was more than the car so it got stood, the others where bought incase my dad got cold feet when he packed up banger racing, my grandad used to own orchards and my dad had hundreds of a60's and 110's parked there ready to go :P

MG is totally gone, does make a nice garden ornament though :P Think it's being chopped up. Dads on about selling the Oxford but that won't ever happen as I want it, Riley is after the Mini, and I havn't got any of the pictures of the pop >_< It comes up for sale sometime this month and the guy has given my dad first refusal, other than westy's it's my dads love affair so well most likely get it :P
