some awesome cars there.

I bet there are some superb cars on the wirral, just layed up.

I used to go around finding old vws,inc. a 59' split camper, stacks of beetles, T3 square back (estate type vw), 3 beach buggys,etc.
I bought stacks of them.
There are loads around Oxton in the bigger house's car parks, and again in Kensington/Toxteth in Liverpool.

Wow some brilliant pics there!

The purple curvy car (011.jpg) is the original prototype for the TVR Speed 12 that never got made - it looks like it might be round the back of the factory in Blackpool that is no more :-(

That F40 is actually a Pontiac Fiero GT. I would have been mildly upset to see a real F40 in that state!

It looks very good actually but I knew there was something 'not quite right' with it.

I love the F40, the ultimate supercar for me, I grew up with posters of it on my wall and it still looks amazing today. Older cars have so much more character and soul than today's rather boring offerings.

I recently had a good look at a Veyron. Technically, a brilliant achievement but it just left me cold and underwhelmed. Almost boring. When I last saw an F40, I could have wet my pants, it just looked amazing. Everything about it was special. I'm not even a big Ferrari lover! The Countach has the same kind of effect on me (and the Alpine A610 but that is a bit more of a personal taste obviously - for rarity though, the A610 has both of these licked with 1300 F40's and over 2000 Countach's compared to 800 A610's!!)
