More information on this Austin:
Back in '93 this rough old Austin 7 could be seen from the road in a Cheshire street. From its appearance I'd guess that the owner wasn't a particular enthusiast - I think it was being used as a shed more than anything. Its not there any more so may have been scrapped by now.
This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Austin above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular 7 would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Austin 7, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the 7, and similar old Austins, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
