Title: Abandoned cars
Post by: Doc. on August 21, 2017, 12:59
Hi, we are car games lovers in general, and some of us maybe love cars in real life too. I do, and i am spotting abandoned cars on the streets of my country. I thought this topic would be fun for us. RULE: Just post a picture of abandoned cars u see in your country :) . I hope this topic won't die like the one i created on the Mods section some time ago. Here's an Opel Rekord C from 1971 abandoned more than 15 years ago :)

How in fuck could you classify this as a game? A game has a logical storyline behind it e.g.: 'post an abandoned car picture and rate it, then post your own'
This is a discussion topic, people post an abandoned car picture, there is a discussion about it and thats it.

I'm not sure what the point of this topic originally is, but to me it's focused on discussion and someone is (yet again) behaving like a retard.
This is what i said in the first place, but you know how Ethan acts when u dont do it in his way. Now let's stop this, let's get to the cars!! Who's next to post a photo? :) Cmon, dont be shy, as soon as someone starts it's cool.

Sorry I can't post any abandoned cars because in South Africa we strip them down or steal them within two days.

Well, this car has been there for many many years. It's a Ford, as you can see. What about guessing the model? (I don't know much about cars :P)

This one might look like it isn't abandoned. It's been there for more than a year now.

They don't usually last that long in this city at least. Not sure how exactly the abandoned car policy works here. All I know is they place a sticker with info on the windshield (like in the first picture, except the info is gone there) then they tow it away after some time.

An early Saab 900(?), I believe it was used as a surface friction testing vehicle but I'm not sure.

An abandoned C15 in a fenced area. I think it's been sitting around there for like a decade or so.
