Abandoned Cars

Our passion for all things rusty and abandoned runs strong and finding a car in a field with grass up to its roof instantly makes our day. We become automotive archaeologists, sleuthing for clues that might reveal key information about our find such as why it was abandoned, when it was built, how long it’s been off the road for and so forth.

We do our best to update this section of the site on a regular basis. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled next time you go out and about, there are cars hiding absolutely everywhere.
