The windshield pictures can be put in the comments of the movie. They are just background cars, adds nothing.

No, these windshield pictures worth there own pages. There are more than background cars, full screen.

But about nothing of the car is seen, I do not see the point of listing them like that... The rear views when the guy runs are more interesting, no? (even if blurry)

The toy car is the celebrated Austin J40, styled after the A40 Devon/Dorset. Austin set up a factory to make these and the Pathfinder (based on a 30s Austin Seven race car) in the early 50s, employing IIRC miners whose health problems prevented them working in the pits.

I would list all of the junkyard pictures. They are so interesting.

Horrible - too many dead Imps, Minxes, a Rapier and an Avenger estate. It must have been a Rootes massacre.

ingo, i would be surprised if any original uk examples still exist here, but there maybe a few eastern euro imports in the skoda club

http://www.howmanyleft.co.uk/vehicle/skoda_mb says only 1 Skoda MB left - other combinations such as 1000 or 1000 MB come up with nil.

Some cars are well hidden on there. The other day I was looking to see how many Sierra Sapphire 2000Es were left and couldn't find anything because they were all listed as 'Ford Sapphire 2000E'.

P.S. On the Skoda-pic also something for IMPinballDb :)

@cortina.chris: so it makes no sense to ask the UK-club, if someone wants to swap my three West German Kraftfahrzeugbriefe from the 60ies (2 from a 1000 MB, one from a 110 R) ;)

There's a better possibility: I'll try use it as barter-goods on this marketplace for stuff for Eastern Block-verhicles http://www.omoma.de/ Maybe someone has something about the few VW K 70, which were running in the DDR :)
Another rarity, a 1962' Fahrzeugbrief from a Wartburg 312, a privately imported car, I've already swapped. For an old West German plate.

That scrapyard is such a waste! :( Even if those cars were that common back then. :cry:

Looking at the yard in this film kind of makes me glad there are less breakers yards around today (though I've long been a "fan" of them :D ). However, the yards near where I live mostly seemed to have "modernised" a bit over the years. They tend to always strip every car of all its salvageable parts (even if it's likely that very few will sell so fast, or at all), store them in warehouses by part, number them and often end up flogging them online through parts distributors, while a lot of the shells and bodies are stacked on large iron shelves - actually a much better way than just crushing full cars - more economical and efficient for most, too. Not saying cars still don't get crushed, but as far as I know in the yards that I know of it's mostly just the badly-worn and rotten remains that often get rounded up and crushed along with cars that are complete wrecks. Any classics that end up in the local yards are often preserved, sometimes even advertised in the local paper or car magazine classifieds. Pity then that sometimes banger racers get their hands on them first (looks fun, but never really liked that sport personally). :p
