Thankfully it has been a bit quiet on the whole classics for scrap thing!! Over the last week we have had a tidy little 1989 Suzuki supercarry and a 1984 maestro Mayfair with only 80k on the clock and fsh to back it up!! It was a local car too! It has the 1275 metro engine fitted (be it the wrong way round and mounted to a "normal" gearbox!!), also last week two series 3 land rovers, one a 72, the other a 75, bit the dust too, both being very worse for wear though!

Over the last few days has seen a very very very rotten Austin allegro 1300 super, a 1977 swb land rover, the front end of a rolls Royce/Bentley and finally a "nearly classic" mk4 escort!!

It's a mk 10 and it's too rotten to even banger race. It's getting crushed!! Today we took in a 1974 Range Rover looking quite sorry for itself!!

Yesterday I collected for scrap a 1970 JCB 4C, 1967 Zeta 4x4
tractor and a 1985 BMW 320i. At the same place I found a 1969 Morris mini van and a 1970 Morris minor traveller (which is for sale!, although needs a light restoration!) and 1981 land rover LWB which is also for sale needing outriggers etc repairing!

Today's day of destruction included a very very tidy 1981 Mercedes 230, in blue with tan coloured interior, even had its original radio!! A Toyota supra 3.0 twin turbo, @1989, quite rare now I should think!! Oh, and another land rover lwb series 3!!

With all these landies bitting the dust I dont suppose a saveable canvas roof might come your way Luke?

I will certainly keep an eye out for you Richard!! It's the sort of thing to be taken off before scrapping tho if it's any good!!

Now I have worked out how too post pics I can update some old posts!!!!

Nice allegro! judging by the rust, and that it is leyland, I would say it had been outside for about a week and a half to get to that state!

Over the last week we have had half a circa 1983 fx4 London cab bought in by moi!!, and today a very early 6/99 Wolseley (westminster shape) that had been banger raced.
And also, sort of classic, a very toastie 1989 Leyland DAF recovery truck!! The Jensen would feel at home on the back of this!!!
