    Looks like it's been abandoned before it even got out of the driveway.

    Just come across this whilst looking for an Austin Champ with a Rolls-Royce B50 engine on ebay.
    Our very own @Austin Allegro should really buy this fine example from Lytham St Annes.

    Ahhhh, I used to own one, same year, same colour (Flash Red, bit brighter than Tornado red) but the 1.8 G60 supercharged engine, 160 bhp. Bought it in 2001, kept it for about 4 years. Previous owner had the supercharger tweaked with a chip and smaller pulley, so probably made about 190bhp.
    That J plate one looks very tidy, it's had a respray or been kept out of the sun most of its life. Good looking cars, given they came out around 1987, have aged well. They were expensive, mid 90's they were £25k when the Scirocco was about £12k. A lot of development went into the handling & aerodynamics, quite an underrated car.
    I replaced the red one with a 1996 Corrado 2.9 VR6, in Classic green pearl, black leather. Quick, beautiful offbeat exhaust note and handled superbly for a 90's car.  It was my daily driver for 10 years until 2016, the most reliable car I ever owned, and simple to maintain. Lack of a garage and young kids forced its sale (bucket type seats in the back don't really work with kids seats). Still gutted but at least it went to an enthusiast with a garage.

    This is news to me, and very surprising news seeing it's Blackhall - or Smackhall as it's known locally. I nearly bought a house there in the late 1980s, and in a spooky coincidence when I met the current Mrs XYY and pointed to the house when we were driving through Blackhall one day, it turned out the guy selling it was the brother of her ex.
    It was also where I spotted this lovely 1982 XR3 in August last year...
     

     
    Good thread title by the way double-oh seven, I saw what you did there. I still reckon Get Carter's climax was filmed on Horden beach, but most folk say it was Blackhall.

    she looks like her relative

    In case you are wondering Princess Anne is related to Vlad Dracula through her great grandmother - Mary of Teck (Queen Mary). Anne is believed to carry the "vampire" gene that causes porphyria - the only cure is drinking the fresh blood of virgins.
    I must say JC Drunckers looks a bit like Vlad too.

    here he is about to suck the lifeblood out of May

    Policeman on the radio said he hoped it wasn't some poor sod with dementia or something that didn't know what they were doing.
    Also,  I'm sure pc plod wouldn't say 'yes, someone claimed it and didn't leave their name or give you a reward' as he drives off in his new xr2.
