    A lot of fascinating stuff there, but I don't think that Decap is a real one.
    The measure of your character isn't what you do when people are watching- it's what you do when they aren't watching.

    IF it had been a Chapron car, by it's description it would be called "La Topless".

    This car will now be worth more that at it's previous appearance here because it's now been moved inside. Some bird droppings, more dust and a decent sprinkling of straw should add to the image.

    Or in this case better described as "La Bottomless"

    "Déesse" Roland Barthes, 'Mythologies', 1957

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    Many of them may have been acquired in already poor condition, but obviously a few could have been stored better. I'm never too hasty to draw conclusions on that front as it's often the case that they are where they are in their current state and maybe still available for restoration OR they would have been crushed decades ago. It's a wonder so many old cars have actually survived the period of very high scrap prices we've seen in the past 5-10 years. You could barely give scrap cars away when the price of iron ore was about $20/t for years and years. Leaving it in a paddock was often the least expensive way of dealing with an unwanted vehicle.

    Earlier advert featuring the same car. Not sure if it's the same vendor, but quite likely.
