Was in Michael Douglas's yard earlier in the week. It's been a good while since I was in and all the Volvos are now against the fence that backs on to the railway line.

Only one 300 series car there. A 1988 1.4 with missing prop, wing and bent bonnet. Didn't peek under the rear to check if the transmission was still in.

Saw the 5 door 340 again, hadn't seen it in over a year, it now has a set of aftermarket alloys on it and my brief glimpse of it I don't think I like them haha.

The furthest one looks like a 440 but the nearer one could be a 340 ;-?

Now then, now then, I know this bloke's a mixer and didn't your mother say, steer clear of the DJ ;-0

I didn't even notice the one nearest to the camera. Yeah that definitely looks like a 300 series.
