I thought this was worth showing, I've never seen one this bad before. It was a genuine struggle finding anywhere substantial enough to attach the winch too :lol:

That looks like an SS1 I dragged out of West Wales - right on the coast where it had sat for 10 years!

No, not been anywhere near the sea, just in a hedge in Hertfordshire since 1985.

I don't see this one being saved. The only way would be a replacement chassis and then its star feature, it being an early car, is lost anyway. If anyone wants to take it on, they're welcome to have it for what it owes me.
