A Volkswagen Golf abandoned on the street in the U.K. has been sitting for so long that frustrated neighbourhood residents decided to throw it a birthday party. George Street in Shefford, Bedfordshire, has been home to an abandoned VW Golf since December 2019. The street has also been home to a large community of residents who are annoyed the vehicle has been an eyesore of the community for over a year now. In a final act of desperation, the community decided to throw the car a birthday party for remaining in the same spot for a year.

The vehicle—what appears to be a red hatchback or small crossover–was allegedly being driven by a 76-year-old man and was clocked at speeds of over 150 km/h.
