There is a HG that I walk past nearly every day that is the most rusted old Holden I've ever seen. I should get a photo of it, but I don't like walking into random people's properties too much... :P

I've seen loads of shots of crashed ones but I don't care to save them because I don't enjoy looking at them very much lol

Is there a prize??
This car was located right on the coast. As can be seen didn't weather it too well. SLR 202 auto. Its amazing what you can still get out of them even when they look like this, Still had the full SLR silver dash and instruments. Going to be in Hainzy's project one day. Nothing was wasted!

Here's my $400 special that i had about 5 years ago, stripped it of what i needed and then sent it to the scrap yard. I have my old torana thats in the back yard getting the same treatment at the moment due to too much rust.

Yes I cut it up with the angle grinder. Thought I would make it easier to get rid of it.
The first two pics was as it came , no A pillars at all. What a waist you are correct .
urkss the gem you sold me will supply bits for the hatch floor /plenum etc

Hey, don't be put off, grab a hatch, no matter what the condition, its an investment, store it, will be nearly as good as a house, but you cant live in it, well , depends were you are !


Here's another one from the same place. This at least will get back on the road (some day)This is pretty bad in the rear but as is said above its an investment. Originally a 253 4 speed.
