i have posted this before but ill do it again lol

Sign-up now:>>> save our old cars

Amid the global economic crisis, the classic car market is a rare British success story, but the new scrappage incentive threatens to damage this by paying people to dispose of perfectly serviceable retro and classic cars.

This will lead to jobs being lost in the retro classic car industries; meanwhile the vast majority of this scrappage money will go toward subsidising foreign car companies. Given that the most polluting stage of a carís life is its manufacture, we therefore believe that it is a horrible waste to encourage retro and classic cars to be scrapped in favour of newer models with shorter operational lives.

A properly maintained old car not only puts out significantly less emissions (including C02) than is permissible by law, it also prevents the need for other, more wasteful, cars to be produced and consumed.

We therefore urge the protection of cherished, well-maintained cars by re-instigating the rolling 25-year road fund licence exemption for historic vehicles. This will help protect our motoring heritage and its manufacturing industries in the face of recent legislation.

For everyone that gets scrapped and taken off the road the more yours goes up in value and the rarer it becomes.

Is that such a bad thing?

They had the phase 1 in there being broken, 52k on the clock and in mint condition. Got in there early though, not much of it left really after I finished, sad to break it really.

i work for a garage and basically half the scrappers we get in are perfectly good. there either very low millage and been owned by old people or they would be perfect first cars. so far we havent seen any 5's at all but we have had a m-reg golf vr6 with only 77k onthe clock and 2 owners from new. it was hard to see that one go on the back of the truck via its roof
