    Cars were rough but there were many good parts in this. Now all gone to make bean tins:

    That is unbelievable,no matter how much you not even into cars how can you go that? Lots of good spares and useable parts gone,probably happened to numerous other places too.

    hoarders for you,but just life in general.

    bloke dies with all those cars around.kids come in and scrap the lot to clear the land.value off parts doesnt come into it,or how rare they are.not every one has the time to sell stuff.

    id like to think they have all gone onto make better things.

    like cheap chinese chrome sbc valve covers for 20 notes


    they gotta source the steel from somewhere

    Sadly, I have found other similar videos, yards/fields etc being emptied of old vehicles for scrap. So many parts (and sometimes cars) that could be used, just trashed. Grrr

    Them being picked up and crushed is no different from them sitting there in the mud slowly rotting away. It’s just a bit quicker and more honest.
    The fact that this sort of thing has happened for years is why our old cars are cool, if they were all saved we wouldn’t want them.
