Some photos below taken on an interesting visit to David a few years ago including the remains of some Minis in the undergrowth....I believe he was reluctant to sell some of what was left as he had perhaps undervalued some of his stuff in the past and then seen it sold on at a much higher price. Also at the time I think his property was under threat of a nearby re-development project.

I think my mate Chris managed to pry a blaze orange Mark III 'S' out of this guy about 15 years ago.

Surrey area, old military truck and old Minis rotting away everywhere.
