Today I found whilst walking.....

A Fiat Abarth 130TC in a field alongside some other equally forgotten and unloved vehicles.

Unfortunately the car is way beyond repair in my opinion. I did take some pics on my phone but they are not very good so I'm going to go back tomorrow with a Camera.

I've always wanted to find something like this as I'm captivated by similar stories featured in Classic & Sports Car.

Yes, but in red and with different wheels. I've taken some photos today and will upload one once I've downloaded them.

When I read the title, I was worried that folk song was going to be perpetrated in here.

Difficult to say, but from the angle/rake and shape of the A pillar, it could be a Jaguar XJ.... ???

Re: Today I found whilst walking.....

I would have gone with some kind of Saab based on the A pillar and windscreen, but really hard to say.

Still, I'm sure most of those marks would come out with a t-cut, and it should come up nice with a polish!
