This poor, poor coupe :-(

I discovered a very sad looking car at my place of work last night. I'm used to seeing cars such as Lamborghini's, Ferrari's, Maserati's, BMW's, Audi's, Aston Martin's the list is endless. Being a five star hotel it's no surprise that cars of this caliber turn up, so you could imagine my excitement when I got out of my coupe to see another one, a gen 3.5, parked about 20 meters away. I went over to look and at first all seemed well until I saw the destruction...

It's a bit knackered on the outside. Black dents, marks, scratches and endless dings. The headlights had some extreme decay and had fogged, the rear light was smashed and the exhaust tips had rusted! The inside was a bit better but dirty. The boot lid did not fit properly either. I couldn't take too many pictures as it wasn't my car and I'd look a bit of a tosser running around a car taking pictures of it so this is all I got for you.

This makes me sad because there are so few of these around where I live. I saw another one with extreme oxidation on the bonnet and a smashed up reg plate.

It is sad to see coupe's in a state when out and about

I think the trouble is we are so used to seeing great looking coupe's on here we forget other people just use them as cars for going to work and shopping and stuff.

:text-yeahthat: to some people the coupe to them is what my old clio used to be me, a car I didn't care about and just abused it! It could've been worse though, a red coupe like that would've made me cry :angry-nono:
