Beyond repair? Nah.

Hi, I don't know where this car is. Found the pictures on Flickr. The guy who took the picture lives in Polbeth, Scotland and said this was on a farm about 7 miles from where he lives.
Below is the write up that came with the picture:

1974 Vauxhall Firenza
Well it was a nice crisp morning and I was off work, so I went back to where I'd seen this Firenza last Sunday. The owner was at his car when I pulled up, so I reckoned I'd approach him and see how I got on. He was friendly, a chap around 70, and we ended up talking cars for about half an hour. The engine in this Firenza is fine, the inner sills are sound, and he has the gold Viva Coupe (see other pics) to use for some body sections - so this Firenza may hit the road again some day. (it's been off the road since December 1986). I was also really surprised to learn that his passion is Rileys, and then he showed me a Rover Gas Turbine engine - basically he's been working with cars and machinery all his life, and is a wealth of knowledge. I was lucky to gain his trust, as the first thing he said when I mentioned pictures was that they should not be published in a magazine - apparently someone put a photo of one of his cars in a magazine, published the address, and he had umpteen folk pestering him about it. I assured him that I would not be doing that - I didn't mention Flickr as he probably doesn't know anything about that - but the location of these cars is secret as far as I am concerned
