Was out in my GTA today, posing, and seen another abandoned in a garden, just outside Redditch....
Just looked it up on Google Earth and its was there!! YAY
Anyone on here?? I was thinking about stopping and seeing if he wanted to sell it... but I have my hands full with the A610 right now!!

LOL at this rate we could have a midland meet!! LOL

Mr Blueg33, If you are in the area and wanted a peek.... its just off Junction 2 M42, B4101, Dagnell End Road. The large house in the corner... Blink and you will miss it..
I think he maybe a car collector, as Google earth shows more cars in the back yard.. Up to you if you want to ask?? as I said I have my hands full with my A610 for now.. I may call in next time and "Plug the club!!"

Well done. No one was in when I knocked on the door, I didnt leave a note though as I thought buying the whole car was overkill to obtain a rear light!

Okay
Went over met the guy, the car is two owner with reg A6 SWM 1986 its a complete rot box sub frame gone car hasn't moved for years, bonnet doesn't fit correctly front lights damaged and rear lights no good either , the rear spoiler had a high level brake light in it omg :shock:
And I nearly spat my tea in his face when he said he would not take no less than £1950 for it.
I will play the waiting game on him
Watch this space :twisted:

So the highest value bits are gone. If you do get it and are breaking it, there are a couple of parts I am after.

Interior light lens
scuttle panel cover (you know the one that goes over the battery)
console cubby lids if in good condition
carpets if not green smelly and worn :)
