Wow, the original thread says that the cars have been welded in there for at least the last 15 years. Thats one hell of a find if you own/inherited the building!

That's absolutely amazing. I would love to have just one of those cars.
By the makes of the vehicles, I'm guessing it's somewhere in the U.K.
What an amazing find.

I assume they are all in rather good condition and with a good cleaning and buffing I bet they would shine like new.

I also want to see what the cars look like after some cleaning... I hope they had mouse traps set all over or had it air tight...

In the first photo showing the cars, only one looked lika an American muscle car. It could be a 1972~74 Chevelle. The photo is slightly dark, but the rear bumper gives it away with the body shape.

Stev, I think that's a Olds bumper. The car beside it looks like a Plymouth to me. They're both 4-doors, so not worth a whole lot.
