The white wreck looks like an old Chev Firenza

Or a Ranger. Possibly also old Cortina

EISH!!! You're right Buzz... it is a Cortina. What threw me was the square headlight frames, but I didn't look further than that.

The Cortina's indicators were in the front edge of the mudguard, but the Firenza's were under the bumper  :-[

SHIT  ???

Can't remember what it was, I don't think it was a cortina.

The rear 3/4 of the cortina had that curve like on buzzlightyears pic.

Haven't got a clue either.

When you see one of these old wrecks, doesn't it make you wonder what the stories each one could tell, from new to abandoned
