    Crikey thats an odd place! Wonder why it has been left like that? There's certainly nothing like that up here (unless someone knows better!).

    That is actually a fantastic find. I love how those cars still have the sale boards on top and have just been left there. I'd really love to get that bug too

    I drive past this place every day, none of the cars are ever moved, no new ones added or old one taken, it just stands and continues to decay. However, this place is used. There are lights on at night and sometime people can be seen moving around in the office.

    It was broken into around 12 months ago, the red door on the front of office is new. If you look on the far left of the first image you will see the new door.

    Theres something going on here, but not sure what...

    Great to see this place posted here, great pics guys....

    This place is used and still operating as a business. I contacted them about the beetle and almost sorted a viewing for it to far for me to travel though.

    Cool


    thought i'd check dvla and i was suprised to find out this about the chavlier:

    The enquiry is complete

    The vehicle details for H439 CBM are:

    Date of Liability 01 09 2008
    Date of First Registration 13 08 1990
    Year of Manufacture 1990
    Cylinder Capacity (cc) 1388CC
    CO2 Emissions Not Available
    Fuel Type Petrol
    Export Marker Not Applicable
    Vehicle Status SORN Not Due
    Vehicle Colour RED
    Vehicle Type Approval null
    The information contained on this page is correct at the time of enquiry.
    Vehicle Excise Duty Rate for vehicle
    6 Months Rate 66.00
    12 Months Rate 120.00

    By my reckoning its still taxed but it'S NOT on the insurance database so its not insured, a strange thing if its still taxed. oh well great find love things like this find

    Its probably SORN'd, my bike was not taxed over the winter and when I checked it before taxing in April it gave date of liability of September even though it wasnt taxed, it was just the date of SORN expiry

    Shows that it's SORN'd! Nice find though.

    It's amazing how these garages keep going even though they look derelict..I knew of a place that was virtually falling down but always had a gold Mitsubishi parked inside it. Although it looked like it never moved it actually belonged to the old guy who lived next door who used to work there and after it closed kept on parking his car there! So although it was closed it was still in use for something.
