This is some old news but just came across it. Anyone seen the article before? The cars are abandoned from an old Toyota dealership. Looks like a real time machine. Wonder how the Celica would drive when brand new? Check out the pics.

http://www.urban-travel.org/greenline/

"Since 1974 there a big part of Cyprus became abandoned after creating a cease-fire line between Cyprus and the

unrecognized Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

36 years of decay. Abandoned houses, hotels, shops and even cardealers.

That means: several 'new' cars with only 37 driven miles, vintage advertising in the streets and much much more!

These photographs were made by my brother Bo de Visser,

he was one of the few photographers who was able to explore this place."

I wonder why it has been abandoned? That looks amazing in there. Would be amazing to be able to get the cars out and into musiums and into enthusiasts hands, wouldn't take too much restoration either! Would be also just as amazing to be able to get hold of vintage advertisements and I wouldn't think paperwork/brochures etc would be too damaged either.

Are there any more pictures on this?
