    Default Welsh boy racer.


    Remains of a garage behind another garage with a river & railway line behind.















    Didn't stay too long 'cause the rest of the place is still in use.
    Thanks for looking.

    Wow, a Vauxhall Chevette! My first car was one of these, haven't seen one for years. Great stuff.

    Sod the Chevette, that looks like a Mk.2 Escort half hidden by the tarp. If that's a two door thats worth some serious coin.
