Today I saw an abandoned classic and took a pic thread!

This week outside Dungourney Co. Cork. A Triumph Mayflower, a Saab 96, a couple of Renault 4's and an old Land Rover (not in the picture) next to a house. There were a couple of vile purple coloured Talbot Sunbeam's too but I didn't think they were worth photographing tbh.

I'm off to Cavan tomorrow, so I'll update the Nobber lunatic's latest collection.

I can't understand why these people won't do anything with them or give them to someone who will...


Sad.

The Jag and the Daimler are in Drimoleague in west Cork, the mk 10 is handy money but needs a lot of work but was sound the last time I saw it. The Daimler is a poverty spec one with cloth seats so I wasn't interested and the Austin hearse is in the back of one of my garages almost restored.

Fair play on the Austin - no one seems interested in Hearses over here, or am I wrong? anyway, any pics of the restoration at all?? Was it a big job? cheers for the pics of the jag - how much exactly do you think it would go for???

I'd say 500 euros would buy the Jag but you'd want to know what your doing. There are about 10 people in the country interested in classic hearses as far as I know which is a real pity as Ireland is very well known world wide for it's hearses. There are about 8 still building hearses here for the Irish market and for export. Here's a couple of pictures of my next hearse restoration project. I haven't any on the hearse restoration, I just didn't get around to it tbh but I will.
