    If you ask anyone "what's the most common classic car on the road". No doubt they'll either say "mini" or "MGB" so I'm not surprised that a BGT has made it onto the list.
    There is a provision under the scrappage scheme for usable parts to be removed and then sold on but the core has to be crushed.

    The thing that I do find gauling is that the classics on that list, under the rules, MUST have had MOT's. That implies that they wern't just basket cases ready for the crusher and that they were half decent cars that had plenty of life left in them.
    The funny thing is that a BGT, Midget, Morris Minor, ADO16 and possibly either of the two Jags with an MOT are clearly worth more on the private market than the £1000 that the former owners would have got for them at the stealership.

    The majority of the cars that have been chopped in are micras. First hand I suspect most people are thinking "so what". However, once this thing starts getting a lot bigger, there are going to be a lot of young people who struggle to find a cheap first car or low income familys who work on the principal of disposable motoring (i.e buy it for £250 with 12 months MOT and use it 'till it dies".
    As usual with all government schemes, it's the poorer members of society who will ultimately be the ones to suffer.
    Furthermore, the governments so called "contribution" is fiddled in such a way when you factor in VAT that they don't actually end up contributing the full £1000.

    Well done Winky the Clown, you've ****ed us over yet again...

    The fact about causing social deprivation has been one of my main objections. For many families that will make the difference between the breadwinner being able to get to their minimum wage job or not.

    In Britain the needs of the majority of the population have never been understood by the ruling elites, this applies to all political parties. You only have to compare Jobseekers allowance or the Pension with MP's allowance to get my point...I would have thought that the kind of owner who drives a 12 year old Euro-bucket does so precisely because they because they dont have the funds to enter the new car market. I believe the scrappage scheme is similar to "crushing klunker programes" first tried in the USA and supported by big buisness . At the end of the day Ford doesn't want owners of classic 60s iron on the road when it could force them to buy a Focus or a KA .

    What are the chances that some enterprising souls at the new car dealers are "recycling" the useful (valuable) parts of these cars before they go to the crusher? Does some government busy-body, check cars to be scrapped before they get turned into fridge doors?

    I would have thought that dealers being dealers, if they see something worth saving they'll divert the car away from the program and sell it on elsewhere whilst still giving the new car buyer the grand!

    I mean, they're not stupid and they want the most money they can get!

    I know there will be exceptions - I remember 20 years ago in LA an old boy had a '63 Plymouth 426 Max Wedge that he'd owned from new and he took it to watch it be crushed because he didn't want anyone else owning it! :****er: Sick or what but there's always going to be stuff that gets lost no matter what!
