I photographed these derelict classics in southeastern Australia a couple of weeks ago. They were parked in a small town right next to a repair shop.
The place isn’t as abandoned as it looks, and the repair shop was still open for business. The cars were in what looked like the garage’s storage lot, along with a few shipping containers and a handful of more modern cars like a mid-1990s Holden Commodore.
I couldn’t walk up to the cars, I took the pictures below through a chain-link fence, but even from a distance they all looked rusted beyond reasonable repair. The amount of rust on the Alfetta was absolutely breath-taking — it’s one of the rustiest cars I’ve ever seen anywhere in the world. Clearly, Italian steel and humid climates don’t mix.
