Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Chevrolet and Reliant finally tidied away

I have to say that the hysterical ‘tidy’ of the east end of Glasgow that was associated with the 2014 Commonwealth Shames was a another ‘shame’, as it meant that a lot of old sites and buildings were cleared away for no other reason than clearing away something embarrassing to the council. Instead of interesting looking relics of the city’s past, all that was left behind was grass or cleared ground, still lying empty and bare today, three years later.

Probably NOT  actually related to this, there were still many nearby places that were cleaned up, and stuff that had been lying there, and gathering dust for years, made to disappear.

One case was some garages and works in sight of a main road near Parkhead, and the two cars seen below, which had sat in a corner, bothering nobody, for years, disappeared (along with a load of other stuff, it has to be said).

Now, I imagine they were ultimately dragged off and scrapped.

Interesting that both cars had the letter section taped off to hide the letters at some point, although nothing’s really hidden given we can see what the cars are, and the year letter plus numbers.

On the one hand I miss passing them, on the other, at least I don’t keep reaching for my camera whenever I walk past.

  1. The plate does not belong the Chevy

    DVLA Search On :-

    No details held by DVLA

    So , not scrapped , not on SORN


    Probably not SORN because it was off road & untaxed prior to introduction of SORN. Thuis never ‘continuous SORN’
