    在声明中, 公司说: ‘The parking charges are paid and up to date so this is not an abandoned vehicle.

    A check of publicly available data on the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) website provides some limited clues about the classic car’s history, but not its mysterious ownership.

    The vehicle hasn’t been taxed since June 2019 但, as it’s currently off the road and three-storeys up in the air, it doesn’t need be taxed until being driven somewhere else.

    The DVLA site also confirmed the colour of the car under all that dirt is indeed maroon but beyond that, the identity of the owner remains – 至少现在 – 未知.

    In the corner of one rear window, there’s a small sticker of the Leeds Grand de Parp, an annual event started in 2013 by the Leeds branch of the Morris Minors Owners Club.

    The only other clue is a more modern addition the car’s classic retro curvesa sticker on the boot bearing the name ‘Mildredin prominent red lettering.

    While it is not entirely clear how long exactly the car has remained inside the car park, the car’s MOT expired in July 2017 which means it could be just over four years.

    But without a current MOT certificate in place, there is a risk of the mysterious owner being clobbered with a fine of up to £1,000 should the car get back out on the road.
