Thats one way of lifting a car on Paul! Never thought of doing it that way. Mine are probably too heavy when I scrap them to use the crane. Fortunately my neighbour has a nice telehandler.

Before we replaced the JCB with a newer 3CX a couple of years ago, here's how i moved cars i'd scrapped:

That's a handy looking trailer you've got there Paul! Mind n keep it secure though, we've had one nicked a couple of years ago.

Anyway, I was only showing how I managed to "Manualy" get a shell onto my trailer to dispose of... not asking how everyone else would do it.. :lol: :lol: :-D

Yes I know we cant save them all, thats how they become scarse and expensive... :x

There seems to be a very small hole in that wheel arch :shock: Ideal for checking the tread on the rear tyres though!

That's probably the worst one I've seen, and it appears that someone had chopped the rust back to 'goodish' metal with the plan to repair I suppose.

One seriously rotten CX that was - one of the worst I've seen.

Sorry to have taken over your Blog, Paul...

I quite agree Robert :)

So long as they're not simply crushed with all remaining good bits that will keep others on the road...
