There is this guy in "Hokandara" who is a son of Prema engineering owner . Elderly fellow ..i met him few times at his residence few years back. he has an amazing collection of oooold classic cars.

I was passing his place few months ago and those junkies are still there. worth paying a visit if you are hunting for oldies.

Hi I've been there some time ago. Believe me the place is very depressing. Not sure about directions but it's on your right hand side when "going".

Prad, on the left side on the same road, in a v large coconut land there lies a kermit the frog green series 1 Mazda RX7 in dismantled form. You might as well exert your energy on that ;)

Just reviving an old thread.......

There is a Wolseley 1500, Alfa Romeo Alfetta GTV 2ltr and a Renault R5 lying for restoration at Battaramulla. The owner wants to restore them for about the last 20 years or so and....well they are at the moment Rusting In Peace (under cover though)!!!!!!

Members,

This I saw on Monday when turn off at Madempe on Chilaw road to interior on kurunagala road.

I was coming down to Colombo from Kuliyapitiya, and Madagama in Chilaw district after doing two jobs.

I came across number of old Vehicles Hillman, Austin A40 Van. and few others on the road side, repair garages, lying for long time.

They can be restored if owners are willing to sell them.

There is also one place at Hanwella near the police station. Place is full of abandoned Fiats and Morris Minors.

Then again there is one hell of a treasure trove at Tissamaharama - Yodakandiya. Just as you turn left from the Tissa- Kirinda road into the road to Situlpawwa there is a gravel road to the left and the place is at the end of that gravel road. That chap has disused Ford Prefects, A40s, Morris minors, Austin Cambridges some Peugeot 403s and 203s, AND best of all he has meter clusters and used spares and body parts for most of those classics.

CJ5,

I have driven pass road side number of times used cars, which can be put in to good use as. Next time will take pictures’ and post them to the forum.

I have seen them some time back. They are still there.?

Hanwella near the police station. Place is full of abandoned Fiats and Morris Minors.

Once 10 years back, I saw on the road side in Galle district, this was just close to a tea estate.

A SUNBEEM motor cycle. Stopped my vehicle Incquard the price if they are selling. They quoted me .5M.
