Police have found a Peugeot 104 that was stolen 38 years ago (it was four years old when stolen), and will be returning it to the original owners. However, it is not in a great state;

Looks like the total shed that parked next to me at the S-market today.....I bet it even smells better that the two "things" that walked past my open window !

At the Great Dorset Steam Fair this year was a traction engine that had been in (under?) a river for 50 years, after it had been pushed there to reduce the erosion of the bank.
