The haunting abandoned wrecks of rural France

Autocar Logo By Ronan Glon of Autocar | Slide 2 of 29: Built from 1959 to 2000, the original Mini is considered a masterpiece of engineering because it offers four seats and a usable boot in a 120in footprint. We’re not sure if the owner of this example wanted to make it even shorter, or if he hoped to turn it into a totem, but it worked. It’s too far gone to restore but its remains would make a neat desk or a cool couch.
