An abandoned F 40? This site literally brought tears to my eyes.

Some of them are sad, but a lot of them are just dusty, or clearly in the middle of a restoration.

Is that a real F40 or a kit car?

"Ran When Parked", the video!

I'm with Josh on this one..it looks like a random collection of photos. Some of those cars are being resurrected.

There is a thread on some forum, "abandoned exotics" or something that has a bunch of pictures like that.

Edit: looks like the site is broken now

Lots of those cars look like the last word said over them was, "A head gasket costs WHAT?"

The 512 Testarossa just looks parked. Most of the rest are old/crashed/rusted away.

I'd rock any of the Astons.... dust off the windshield and go. Park that bitch right in front of some larney restaurant and toss the keys to the valet.

Some highlights, or lowlights for those that just can't be bothered with a link.
Kinda looks like a kit car, I hope.

This owner was gonna clean it up, but he ran outtatime

One of the most beautiful cars ever, how could it get like this?

Cummon, these things run forever

In my opinion, the most beautiful cars ever made. Even this filthy, broken example makes me want to touch myself

Another rare example of beauty

Tom Selleck is pissed

I think the Alpine would be worth saving if it's in the US. Not many of those came over here.

But considering the original source, the pic could be from Europe.

Check his YouTube channel info. He's from Denmark. Looks like a good place for barn finds. I don't know about shipping but anything more than 25 years old is exempt from EPA regulations...,

Looks to me like a bunch of those cars are simply abandoned projects.

I'd assume a lot of members on this site have a car in the backyard that they'll "get to one of these days" I know I do.

Well, I don't have the dough to get it shipped over here (and if I did, I wouldn't have anything left to save it.. ).

The Miura, OTOH...tempts me to cash in the retirement fund. I wonder where that one's sitting.

I should head up the hill behind the (soon to be)inlaws place. one P.O. left like 3-5 50's/early 60's cars up there. One might just be salvageable.

I think the Ferraris are the real deal. I've seen a few of those pix posted elsewhere, attributed to US soldiers in Iraq. If ever an F40 was gonna get abandoned, that'd be the place.
