Hopefully they are rusting away into oblivion.
Hopefully they washed away in the floods.

I don't understand why they are just left. Not everyone's cup of tea, but worth something. Stick each one on eBay at 99p start: you'll get rid of them and get some money in. Why just leave them to rot?

Maybe someone is just trying to create the "amazing barn full of classics discovered" for fifty years time.

It grinds my gears when people keep quoting time after time after time after time - yeh we have seen the quote , we have seen the pictures, we don't need to see them being quoted on every new post.

I think he's talking about the re-quoting?

Yes, it is damned annoying and a waste of bandwidth.

Ship 'em to Brighton and they'll sell. Allegedly. Sorry for nesting quotes, too.

Saw this yesterday, on a commuting route I sometimes use. Never seen it before!
As you can see the MG is the wrong wide of the hedge from the road. What you can't see is that behind the camera is a river, that flooded, massively a few weeks ago.
I just thought - it's been washed out of someone's garden, yard or a riverside tip.
No answer from nearby house, so took pics to note the number.
Licence on windscreen expired 1993, several holed panels, goodness knows what its like underneath, but inside its reasonable, compared to the rest.

Oh, Ho! Can I claim it, if no one else does? It's been there at least a fortnight, since the floods.
DVLA had no record of that MG with that number.
So rang local police station, making clear that I'd like first refusal; before it was scrapped.
And expected to hear nothing for weeks.
The very next day, call from Police - we've identified the owner, he knows its there, it's on private land (so don't go and nick it, sonny) and it will be removed asap!

I still don't know if it was washed away, but it would have been a basket case, anyway, I fear.

Good effort John, but looks like it's spares only - just uneconomic to repair really - decent ones aren't even that much to buy relatively. Not gone up a great deal in the 30 years since I restored one and sold it straight after. (It was only 12 years old and rotten to the core) ... roadster though not a GT.

There's a market for rotten MGs if they still have a V5 - everything is available for them, including new shells. You just need an old identity donor.

Every now and then here in Beijing, you'll see something that will stop you dead in your tracks as a pistonhead. For me it was seeing this Evo 5 RS abandoned in the Worker's Stadium, basically the nightlife center of the city. Now I admit this is not a classic in the sense of a series-1 911, but there are literally only a handful of these legacy Evos in the whole country, so it's s real goddam shame...

Anyways some more pics on Rare_Cars_China on Instagram (Blatent self-promotion right there)

Two Rover SD1's parked up in Ruddington, Nottingham. An attempt at covering them up has been made so they must mean something to someone. They look to have been here for some time.
