Deep in the Forest / 5

Another image of the car seen in the last post. The ground was too uneven for me to take a closer look so I don’t know how much of the engine is left, but the rocker cover looks in about the right place so maybe there is more underneath! And of course, it must be a front-engined car, so a Triumph Herald it appears to be…besides which, I now realise that the body shape and grille in no way resemble that of a Hillman Imp…..

…..or could it be a VW Golf Mk 1?

Hillman or Triumph or V?

I love this image, it has atmosphere in spades, exactly as Kyrkö Mosse had when we visited.



  1. This car graveyard does indeed have a lot going for it. Industrial sculpture, in a woodland setting.
    It could win the Turner Prize!
    Best wishes, Pete.

      Haha! What a thought…..oh, and what d’you reckon to a Golf Mk 1?

      • I has one in 1982. I think it was a Mk 1. Some sort of dressed-up special, but with only the 1300 cc 4-speed. It was written off in a high-speed crash on the A1. (Ex wife driving at the time) We spent a week in hospital in Grantham, Lincolnshire. Of all places! (Maggie’s stamping ground)

  2. wonderful how nature takes over after a while, I love the colors, Sue

  3. When I was growing up, our neighbor (the only one) had a Hillman. Fond memories. They were from Scotland.

  4. a nice play of color contrast

  5. I like the patch of water in the background: flourish and decay in his Ne image.

  6. I have no idea which type of car it is, but it’s a cool photo,.

  7. Yes, a great shot Sue. Warm rust colours, plenty of texture and definitely atmosphere
    Doesn’t look quite as Herald-like now but maybe because it’s a little squashed. But I think I see some engine there at the front so not an Imp – I’m pretty sure it was always rear engine.

      I did muse on the car in my words, not an imp as you say, but I also have a Golf Mk 1 as another suspect!! The rocker cover is visible, so front-engined,… Hey ho, but I love this image! Essence of Kyrko Mösse for me!
