Above is just a few of the thousands upon thousands of unsold cars at Sheerness, United Kingdom. Please do see this on Google Maps....type in Sheerness, United Kingdom. Look to the west coast, below River Thames next to River Medway. Left of A249, Brielle Way.
A local guy told me in an E-mail that the docks at Grimsby in the U.K are also worth checking out.

There are hundreds of places like this in the world today and they keep on piling up. And why are they using runways at disused airbases to park up thousands of cars if car sales are normal? Nobody has satisfactorily answered that yet.
General Motors had an all time high of 815,000 unsold cars last month, 83 days supply just sitting there. This rose to 826,000 to the end of April which equates as 85 days worth of sales, gone unsold.
How many of you working class people, reading this webpage, have bought a new car recently? Please do vote in the Poll, Thank You. Already over 80% are saying they have not recently bought a new car. Indeed the figures speak for themselves.
THE WORLDS UNSOLD CAR STOCKPILE
Houston...we have a problem!...Nobody is buying brand new cars anymore! Well they are, but not on the scale they once were. Millions of brand new unsold cars are just sitting redundant on runways and car parks around the world. There, they stay, slowly deteriorating without being maintained.
Below is an image of a massive car park at Swindon, United Kingdom, with thousands upon thousands of unsold cars just sitting there with not a buyer in sight.
The car manufacturers have to buy more and more land just to park their cars as they perpetually roll off the production line.
There is proof that the worlds recession is still biting and won't let go. All around the world there are huge stockpiles of unsold cars and they are being added to every day.
They have run out of space to park all of these brand new unsold cars and are having to buy acres and acres of land to store them.
It would be fair to say that it is becoming a mechanical epidemic of epic proportions.
Below is shown just a few of the 57,000 cars (and growing) that await delivery from their home in the Port of Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.
When using Google Maps look South of Broening Hwy in Dundalk for the massive expanse of space where all these cars are parked up.
The car industry would never sell these cars at massive reductions in their prices to get rid of them, no they still want every buck. If they were to price these cars for a couple of thousand they would sell them. However, nobody would then buy any expensive cars and then they would end up being unsold. Its quite a pickle we have gotten ourselves into.
None of the images on this webpage are of ordinary car parks at shopping malls, football matches etc. Trust me, they are just mountains and mountains of brand spanking new unsold cars. There is no real reason why you should be driving an old clunker now is there?
Also the domino affect would be catastrophic as steel manufactures would not sell their steel. All the tens of thousands of places where car components are made would also be effected, indeed the world could come to a grinding halt.
Tens of thousands of cars are still being made every week but hardly any of them are being sold. Nearly every household in developed countries already has a car or even two or three cars parked up on their driveway as it is.
Below is an image of thousands upon thousands of unsold Peugeot cars parked up on a runway near St Petersburg in Russia.
They are all imported from Europe, they are then parked up and they are then left to rot. Consequently, the airport is now unusable for its original purpose.
But I am told this is normal, and that I must stop spreading panic, fear and lies. Well I can't see anything but thousands of cars that are not at dealerships but are parked up on a runway instead!
The cycle of buying, using, buying using has been broken, it is now just a case of "using" with not much buying.
Please note that wealthy people are still buying McLaren, Zonda, BMW, Ferrari, Porsche, Mercedes, Maybach, Rolls-Royce etc in fact sales have shot up 80% in the last few years. But when we are talking about the working class and cars for like 10, 15, 20 and 25 grand the story is different...very different.
Below is an image of a just small section of the thousands of unsold cars parked up on an disused U.S airbase at Upper Heyford, Bicester, Oxfordshire.
If you think its all a load of bull then please explain why they are parked up at a damn airbase for and not at the dealerships? These photos may be months old but they are still there! Please don't email me (anymore) to say "its normal Vince its normal" How is this normal?
I was emailed by a guy (May 2014) who lives locally to the airbase and he states that they are all still there. They are seriously running out of space to store these cars. Again use Google Maps to check it out, they are all down the runway and in the taxi lanes etc.
I am aware that Google refresh most of their map photos every 6 months or so too. There is usually a date at the bottom of the map page on Google Maps itself. The Upper Heyford area says "Imagery 2014" These Google Map images are not years old as some have emailed me to say they are. Check it out!
It is a sorry state of affairs and there is no answer to it, solutions don't exist. So the cars just keep on being manufactured and keep on adding to the millions of unsold cars already sitting redundant around the world.
Below are parked tens of thousands of cars at Royal Portbury Docks, Avonmouth, near Bristol in the United Kingdom. If you look on Google Maps and scan around the area at say 200ft you will see nothing but parked up unsold cars.
They are absolutely everywhere in that area practically every open space has unsold cars parked up on it.
As it is, there are more cars than there are people on the planet with an estimated 10 billion roadworthy cars in the world today.
We literally cannot make enough of them. Below are seen just a few of the thousands of Citroen's parked up at Corby, Northamptonshire in England. They are being added to daily, imported from France but with nowhere else to go once they arrive.
So there they sit, brand spanking new cars, all with a couple of miles on the clock that was consummate with them being driven to their car parks.
All around the world these cars just keep on piling up, there is no end in sight. The economy shouts out quite loud that nobody has the money anymore to spend on a new car.
The reason being that they are making their "old" cars go on a lot longer. But we cannot stop making them, soon we will run out of space to park them. We are nearly running out of space to drive them that's for sure!
Below, more cars mount up in the port of Valencia in Spain. They will not be exported as there is nowhere for them to go, so they just sit and rot in their colorful droves.
Gone are the days when the family would have a new car every year, they are now keeping what they have got. It may be fair to say that some families still get a new car every year but its the majority that now do not.
The results are in these images, hundreds of thousands if not millions of cars around the world are driven from their factories, parked up and left.
Could we say that these cars have been left to rot! Maybe, as these cars will certainly rot if they are not bought, driven and cared for. It does not look like they will be sold any day soon, many of them have been standing for over 12 months or even longer and this is detrimental to the car.
Someone emailed me to say they are never left standing for longer than a couple of weeks and that the whole webpage is a lie....Below is an image of some brand new Rover 75s parked up in a warehouse in China...better get your duster out!
The Rover car plant in the U.K folded a few years ago, so how long have they been sitting there?
Below, as far as the eye can see, right into the background, cars, cars and more cars. But what's beyond the horizon? Have a guess...yes that's right...even more cars!
Do you think they will ever start giving them away, that may be the only radical solution. Who knows, you could soon be getting a free car with every packet of cornflakes.
When a car is left standing idle for a couple of months or longer, all the oil sinks to the bottom of the sump, and then corrosion begins to set in on all the internal engine parts where the oil has drained away.
Cold corrosion is when condensation builds up in the cylinders and rust forms in the bores. The engines would then start to seize and would need to be professionally freed before they could be started. Also the batteries start to go flat, indeed the detrimental list goes on and on.
So the longer they sit there the worse it slowly becomes for them. What is the answer to this? Well they need to be sold and that just isn't happening in the normal numbers..
The epidemic is not improving, it is getting worse. Car manufacturers are constantly coming out with new models with the latest technology in them. Hence prospective buyers of, for example, a new Citroen Xsara Picasso want the latest model, not last years model. Hence all the unsold Citroen Xsara Picasso cars from the previous year will now have even lesser chance of being sold.
The problems then just keep on mounting up. In the end, the unsold cars that are say 2 years old will have no alternative but to be either crushed up, dismantled and/or their parts recycled.
Some car manufacturers moved their production over to China, General Motors and Cadillac are examples of this. They are then shipped over in containers and unloaded at ports. However they are now being told to put a big halt in their import into the U.S.A. as they just can't sell them in the quantities they would desire. Consequently Chinese car parks are now filling up with brand new American cars.
Well nobody in China can afford them on their meagre pittance wages, so there they will stay until our economy improves...which it might do in a few generations.
