I've seen these before though surprised no ones started nicking bits off them, where is this place exactly? I remember seeing a similar site which had been deemed of natural importance, where the authorities stated all contents should be left untouched, Is this a similar situation?

Its art apparently. Personally I thought the Hiroshima crater was a synch for the Turner Prize. Like a joke when you have to explain art, it is not clever or art anymore. It's bullshit. Doolittle drops a big 'un, it could be a war crime. Picasso pushes the button, its art and is all OK. Another case solved!!!

I was tempted as I need a indicatorswich-top for the Trojan and one was still on the Goggo Coupe... Didn't do it though didn't feel right

That's all very sad but it also happens with collectors and others who think they have a fortune and would rather see them deteriorate than go to an enthusiast

Interesting would they leave a couple of Van Gogh's ,Monet etc in a similar way? Its no more than a tragic waste

Is breaking the speed limit in a Schmitt painted by Banksy art?

Nicking bits of those cars could be part of the artwork. Better to replace the cars slowly with replicas and it becomes its own fake.

But are your cars Art?

Actually I would rather visit you and then take a trip to see the cars. But then we might find something more interesting to do. There is always a catch.

Here's the owners website. Guess he can afford to indulge his fantasies while winding up enthusiasts and collectors at the same time. Isn't there a name for this particular type of artist?

Successful, I think. He must be doing something right, though it escapes me. You thought I was going to be rude then, didn't you?
