Beautiful Waste

Wednesday 30 July 2008

In a splendid act of procrastination, I’ve been flipping through the photos I took while in Melbourne I found that I spent a lot of time taking pictures of old cars around the place. You don’t see many interesting heaps around Britain, what with the annual testing and British cars having all pretty much rusted away or otherwise fallen to bits. Anyway, I went slightly OCD and uploaded them all to Flickr.

  1. I think the US is similar. Slack or absent MoT laws being a major factor. No salt on the roads in Australia would also keep the red cancer at bay and stop these classics from becoming one with the soil. How many were "on gas"?

  2. Ah yes, I forgot to mention that the salted roads would have played hell on the older cars, not that British ones needed much outisde help.

    If you want to see a motley bunch of old cars go to the Channel Islands, where there's no MoT.
