ABANDONED FORD DEALERSHIP PART 1: NEW 80's FORDS STILL INSIDE - SIERRA, ESCORT, FIESTA, ORION

**SEARCH ON OUR OTHER VIDEOS FOR THE FOLLOW UP TO THIS VIDEO**

Join us as we travelled 1000 miles from the UK to go to an disused Ford Dealership in Germany.. inside are Sierras, an Escort, A MK2 Fiesta, and an Orion.. all brand new and locked in a time warp since around 1986.

In the video we see: Green Ford Sierra base model 5 door hatchback, Red Ford Sierra 1.6L 5 door hatchback, Blue Ford Sierra estate, Ford Fiesta S MK2, A Ford Escort 1.1 Laser MK3, and a Ford Orion 1.6 D CL.

Update: So we have been overwhelmed by the comments, in the most part very positive.

The same questions keep popping up, and now after the video has been published we have now found more information:

The Ford dealer closed in the mid 80s. It was a very large dealer, as it had a stock of over 300 cars. The owner continued to be an independent car dealer until his death in 1994. He had 300 cars on site, including 150 new Ford cars left over stock from his dealership days. In 1995, the family who owned all the buildings sold off the majority of his cars including most of the new ones. These unsold cars you see here were moved into the showroom, which was then left as a memorial to the owner. The widow kept the building maintained, clean and tidy, and presumably the cars cleaned etc. She would from time to time allow people to come in and view the cars. At some point someone stole some parts from the cars (guessing the wheel trims and one spotlight) and this put an end to welcoming visitors. The widow kept the place maintained but ended up in a care home. Now the family have not kept up the upkeep of the cars / building and this is how they stand today. I didn’t know all this when I made the video otherwise I would have included this information. Thanks for all the positive comments, I can assure you this is not “staged” or “fake”, I would have much preferred getting inside the building legitimately to have a proper look at these cars. Hope this clears up any confusion.
