Rolls Royce Silver Shadow and Porsche 911

Like it? 
Here we have a nice combo on a farm in Australia.

Both cars were expensive when they were built. Nowadays, they are not extremely expensive anymore, because they are not that rare.
The Silver Shadow I, also known as Silver Wraith, has been built about 17000 times and is nowadays available for around 10000€ in good condition.
The Porsche, which has been produced in much larger numbers, nevertheless costs at least 15000€ for a good example.
Both cars were built in the second half of the 1960's.
I can't imagine a reason why the owner of the farm lets them and many other cars rot there, but he won't sell them and their condition does not really look excellent.
Both cars were many men's dream when they were new and looked like this:

  1. Hi there,
    I think you'll find the Rolls Royce and Porsche are in New South Wales, Australia, judging from the number plate on the Roller
