Who was trying to turn the Astra into a Belmont by sticking the boot in ?Seems a shame that VR6 is getting cubed as it looks a nice car,but it's probably 15 years old now.Still that V6 probably leaks oil like a sieve.Does seem a waste though and I can see why people get angry seeing interesting cars going to the crusher like this.But hey without the crappage scheme you'd probably get offered a grand trade in for that Golf so I can see the point (sort of).

That crap Benz van needs to be saved :lol:

Youve odviously never driven one , best thing for it is to put it out of its misery , I know what you mean sort of ,It has a nice patina
You're right! I've never driven one - crappest van I drove was a PETROL transit with a second gear you had to physically hold it in! It also had a bonus welded up rear window! That needed saving too just for the shite cause!

Every time I drive into my estate I always look to my left as one of the first houses has a Metro Rio. It looks in excellent condition and the only other 'tro on the estate other than my GTI. Obviously a Rover family as there is always a 75 parked next to it. Today however, I pulled into my estate glanced to the left and, Rover 75- check, 10 plate Hyundai i30- doh.

Don't imagine any of that lot will really be missed. Mk3 Golf wasn't exactly VWs finest hour. Merc van might possibly end up doing a few more years in Africa anyway I suspect...

Yea, but still - it's a functional, legal car that happens to look shit now but is in acceptable condition. Therefore, should not be scrapped for any reason but the same for the Sierra and the boring stuff at the top.Crappage scheem is fail in the world of shite.
