I would totally ignore that car. It'll be unloved and a money pit.

My only experience of asking if someone wants to sell something that isn't actually for sale was met with a pretty abrupt reaction. I get it if you're constantly being asked it would become annoying but this was a rusty old farm cart turntable only just visible in the brambles, still there now nearly ten years on.

To be fair, Paul (@Harpham) from back in the day got his sunflower by randomly asking the owner if he could buy it after driving past it every week for years.

Went with a friend once to ask a farmer if a Mk1 fiesta that was rotting in his front garden was for sale. Had been there for ages.

It wasn’t. He said had no interest in it, but wouldn’t sell it. Didn’t explain why and didn’t appreciate the interest

To prevent us asking again he made it clear by piling cow s**t on it - actual s**t up over the bonnet, screen and up to the roof.

Perhaps it was sentimental.

I dont get that at all, no interest in it but not wanting to sell it. That's real farmer mentality, I'm surrounded by farmers my dad being one of them!

They’re all the same. Proper hoarders.

I should have been a farmer. 😂
