Sad indeed...(was slight worried it might be my Edinburgh-based SE6A for a minute!) Where is it, and what's the colour? Gold or yellow, can't see through the muck....


SE6a needing lots of work...

It's so dirty it's difficult to be 100% sure, but it looks to me as though it's probably Aztec, the same colour as the Yellow Peril, which looks quite nice when it's polished up :D However, what's underneath is important too :wink:

I have looked for this car but have not found it to-date, does anyone have a post-code or address of where it is sitting, there is a large number of industrial businesses in Grangemouth.

Trailer has what looks like Wescott Engineering on it. May be of help if you know the area.

Or possibly Hescott? If Rob took the photo, presumably he knows exactly where it is? :wink: I see Will spotted it in this thread, back in 2015

It is in a yard on South Shore Road in the Grangemouth Docks, opposite the Sea Scouts.
