This site has images on all kinds of topics and interests to waste time on. However, this particular link has a collection of 18 color photos of 1930s-50s vintage cars that had been left in sheds on a French farm and forgotten for years. The cars and their weathering is worth taking a peek at, some look like Marc's bin box.


Looking at the photos its a strange combination of sad and inspiring.  Sad to see such "rare gems" rotting away but inspiring from a modelling viewpoint.  I note some trucks in the background aswell.

I should imagine most of them are eminently restorable looking at their general condition . That should keep a lot of people busy for quite a few years.


This was an expensive post - had to get a new keyboard after drooling all over mine  :D.


I like the video and the music the auction company made of the cars.... ;D
