Old breakers yard in norn iron which effectively closed many many years ago. The owner now deals in classic cars and runs an autojumble and sales display each easter. I have taken some pics, which i can share, but it'll be pic heavy! The old breakers yard is a true sight!

When I win the lottery I am buying somewhere like that.

 

That P4 Rover makes me a little sad - looks like someone went to the bother of fitting a new wing but then it got fragged anyway - seems a shame.

 

The Jag is a reminder of how good those old XJs were at rotting away.

Two identical farnams. Deterioration to the roof on both cars you can see the join and filler where the coach builders added the rear estate section.
