Saw it on Facebook last night and checked the mini by the door which was taxed in 2009 IIRC.

this footage was knocking about earlier this year together with some stills but can't think where i saw them........... at the time they were reported as being subject of a civil dispute between the warehouse owner and the vehicles owner, with talk of a possible auction. Footage seems to have circulated again with more interest this time around maybe due to the "abandoned" title.

back in 1985 I saw another "barn"" find also in France, lotus, Bugatti, plus plus. the farmer had them stored outside as well as inside with chickens nesting in the cars. non of the cars were for sale at the time.

On YouTube, several glimpses of cream 6 and others? Use the search "magnifying glass" with the title above and see how many you spot. Such a waste!

This seems to have popped-up a couple of times - I've merged the two threads together :)
