So what's the story behind the car?
Has it been abandoned?

I don't understand. It don't look like it's been left to rot, probably someone's daily driver?

More than likely Mook, maybe just not cared for correctly or an elderly owner so it's physical appearance isn't great?

Honestly guys, its been there ages according to a friend. Its an absolute sh1t state.
mould growing up the windows and rear arches that look like a 5yr old has sprayed them with a can.

if you knew no better about what the car was you'd probably offer 100 quid scrap.

I couldn't believe what I saw and had to go back to it.

Stamshaw ben.

id say it looks abandoned because the tax disc is probably the most valuable part of the car.

completely neglected. A real shame for such an iconic car.

After seeing some R32s in really really good condition on sunday this one really is grot.

You're right though Ben, could definitely be a little project there.

R32s tend to rot in the rear arches if left outside in bad weather, rather than being garaged over winter.

If this is the case the cost of repairs could well br more than the car is worth, so the only likely answer is to use it until it croaks and then break it.
Maybe that's why it's just being used and not loved.
