Paid a visit to the breakers today, some interesting stuff in there...

Late Mk3 Granada Hearse, looked like a 2.9 Auto, had seen a lot of welding to the backs of the sills, presumably what’s seen it off...

Toyota Sera...

The MGB was well rotten, it’d been dragged out a garage where it had sat for years.

Didn’t get a picture but also a decent 85 B plate SAAB 900 turbo and accident damaged 2CV.

Lots of mine here. Some highlights:

 

Pre name change 244.

1981 Volvo 244 DL (2/2) by MattLikesCars, on Flickr

 

740 with a body kit and spoiler. I posted this to the Volvo owners forum about a year after seeing it here, a group went the next day and it was still there and stripped the kit off.

Yellow Omega. Any particular reason why it would be yellow?

Terminally rotten Beta HPE

1975-1984 Lancia Beta HPE 3/4 by MattLikesCars, on Flickr

 

This 240 looked fairly good on the underside. It's at Michael Douglas Auto Salvage in Carlisle (CA3 9QU) and they may well sell it. 01228 520109, you'll probably get Paul on the phone, say Matt with the blue old shape Swift sent you.

The sad thins is that it arrived (those photos) in 2014. Last I saw a couple of months ago they still had it and it was cirtually untouched. Tempting to hire a van, strip it and sell for profit.

Has Michael Douglas gone off being addicted to sex and moved on to Volvos now?

I’d love to know the back story to a lot of the really old stuff like the Beta, I’m guessing someone’s died, first thoughts are to scrap it as opppsed to putting it on eBay for £4,995 BIN

Forgot there was also a Rialto today but it was painted a really gopping metallic pink colour.

Oh and this, how could I forget about this? Again this one they might sell as I did ask about it. Still Polish registered but if you want it use the contact details above that blue 240 estate.

Not sure what the reference to sex is about... They have a pretty big yard so they tend to keep older/interesting stuff for quite a while, the Volvos seem to stick around.

Michael Douglas the actor claimed at one point he was addicted to sex, hence he sought councilling for it. Is it not the same Michael Douglas that runs this scrapyard then?

I doubt that. As far as I am aware the current owner is the son of the guy that started it although the company name only goes back to 2002 and the director is Michael William Douglas (maybe started a new company with his own name to change the branding).

No idea why I am not following you on The Flickr so after seeing this, now I am.

Going by most of the car registrations in this scrapyard and indeed a lot of your photos, Ill guess you are from somewhere in between Moffat and Barrow in Furness?

The vast majority of my scrapyard photos are taken in Michael Douglas Auto Salvage in Carlisle but there are a handful from around Dumfries as that's my patch.

I very much doubt that they still have that car, especially now that the body kit is gone. That photo was taken in 2014.

Aye. Have you seen the gates recently? Each to their own like.

If by the 75 you mean this photo of one parked next to a Jaguar X-Type then that is Auto Salvage Dumfries but again that is a 2014 photo so they probably won't have it.

The only photos I have of scrapped Rialtos were both at the aforementioned Michael Douglas yard in Carlisle but the white one is long gone and if the yellow one is still there then there is virtually nothing left on it. As for the yellow one on the pole...
