It sad to see the likes of the porshe 356 and the rolls in such neglected state. The tyres or the one of rolls also seem flat. If people cant take care of such beauties, why not auction them away so that somebody can take care of them the way they should be. But I am just hoping that its only the issue of them gathering dust and there is no other damage to these. It seems like the garage was whitewhashed or something and these cars have got coated with some kind of white powder.

Default Some more of it.

Thank`s for correcting me, my gyan for these vintage beauties is very low and i think have to take some from you guys.

Yes you mates are right just a wash can bring them to life but dont know about the engine condition, i am sure they must be in good condition as many of them driven only between 5000 to 10,000 only. Just a change of filter with fluids and spark plugs will do.
The caretaker of this place who doesnt know A of automobiles forget the count of year when they were last started, some times he said 8 years some times 10 years. These pictures are only a part of the collection i couldnt manage to go inside further as i suffer from high dust allergy which could have left me sick.
This collection belongs to one of my customer`s father. This guy also have some new generation exoctics with him.

OT : Those look like cat pug marks on the 560SEL, which means if an animal the size of a cat can fool around here, no prizes for concluding that there's definitely some mice/rats doing the rounds too!!!

Now that must get one worried!!

Default Pontiac fiero ZM4 in KSA.

Have been seeing this car since months now lying near a garbage bin. Enquired about the owner from near by shop if he is interested to sell her but no information.

Oh, no , ferrariKSA with his torturing pics again, sorry, just joking.
Can't figure out which car this is. Looks very '80-ish modded car.
Is this place happen to be near Batha?

That's a neglected old Pontiac Fiero. An old coupe from the 80s that was never really popular in it's heyday, but it is now...as a collectible and as a base for mods in some parts of the US.

The body kit seems to indicate that it's a GT, but the '2m4' decal on the boot seems to indicate that it's an older model with updated (if you can call it that!) bumpers.
