Daimler V8 250.
More information on this Daimler:
Even plush cars end up being scrapped. Any hint of dignity for this once-tasty Daimler V8 has long since disappeared. Sat on the Daimlers roof is a 1980s VW Polo with a Mk2 Ford Transit dumped alongside for company. The V8 250 was powered by a 2.5 all alloy V8 engine. This poor old Daimler won't be going anywhere again though.
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 Daimler above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular V8 250 would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Daimler V8 250, 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 V8 250, and similar old Daimlers, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
