RIP Rust in Peace
« on: November 24, 2013, 07:55:43 PM »
hardly a new idea but i love pictures of cars totally neglected and at peace - you would find it hard to beat these - wouldn't you ? OCG 7 now owned by one of our forum members is now an award winning car

Jims pic is a USA spec Isetta with funny lights and bumpers. A lick of Hammerite and it will be as good as new! ;D

Can a fiberglass car rust in peace ? We may have to think of an alternative title for that one.

There is also a short walk-around video that goes with that image:

also- that Isetta is no longer by the river bank, it is now in my backyard garden.

Are you keeping it as a piece of outdoor art work Jim?   A Henry Moore sculpture?

If it's a really scruffy mess it might be more like a PATRICK Moore sculpture  :D

The garden is littered with other rotting bits of memories.
it can handle another one.
I don't think it is art as it is not really making a statement about anything.  I just like looking at it.

Yes indeed Richard, here are some from the archive, most will have seen the Clipper but the others have never been shared.
The red Mark G Bond (780 HPX) was only 30 feet from OCG 7

Just seen this on an abandoned buildings exploration site, may not be rusting but a not too common sight these days.

Very interesting website in general too, there may be more micros hidden away, who knows??

What a find.  My parents lived in Brandon but I don't recall that house.

Wonder if the pickled onions are still good.

No doubt those push-bikes will soon disappear.
