Most people rarely see a Ferrari. And most people have never seen an abandoned Ferrari.
Nevertheless, this Ferrari 348 tb has been discovered in Spain.
It looks undamaged, but at least the paint will have suffered from the plants growing over it.
The 348 tb was the "small" Ferrari between 1989 and 1993.
Only 2894 examples were built in this time.
When the car looked like the example below, it had 300 bhp, acclearated to 100 km/h in 5,7 sec and had a top-speed of 275 km/h (172 mph).

Chrysler New Yorker

This abandoned 1966 Chrysler New Yorker has been found in Canada.
Although it seems this big car (5,54 metres long) has been standing there for quite a while, it still looks saveable.
Providing the 7,2l-V8-engine with its 350bhp is still in it, this could be well worth a restoration.
Here you see another one of the 185000 examples built of this generation of the New Yorker:

Oldsmobile 98

After some years in the desert, little of this Oldsmobile 98 is left.
Almost all paint has gone, leaving a crumpled, but still somehow beautiful body.
After the second world war, the 98, also called Series 90 in some years, was the flagship of the three Oldsmobile-models. It was powered by a 110bhp-V8-engine, that seems to be missing in the car above.
As usual for cars of that era, the 98 is quite rare nowadays.
So there are restored and well-kept examples, which still have the original chrome parts and wheel covers:
