..even if they're not going to be restored, they both contain some useful (and valuable) parts.

Certainly an "opportunity" waiting to be exploited  :)

I used to travel through 'Tod' to get to Halifax twice a week during 1996 - 1999 and I can remember it being there.

Hi Frank,

I noticed that the seat cushon was still there, must say that is rare considering you would have thought it would have been blown away along time ago.............

Yeah, naturally, ;)
but then, the C5 is all green so it must be there for ages! Somehow this seat booster cushion seems to grab onto this C5, unwillingly to let go. Like a little child not wants to leave his mother. :'(
Maybe I should respect that and look for such a booster cushion somewhere else. ;D

I have to say that I'm surprised they have stayed there long enough to even go green and haven't been stolen and sold for bits or as a whole.

Ah well - if you read the comments it's because it's someones garden, not a park as it looks.
