Humber Super Snipe.
More information on this Humber:
This handsome old Super Snipe was partially sheeted up near Leek in Staffordshire in the winter of '95. There is a chance that this Humber got restored - there are signs of fresh metal welded into the bottom of the passenger door. These thirsty old Humbers are a beautiful drive so hopefully this one made it!
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 Humber above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Super Snipe would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Humber Super Snipe, 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 Super Snipe, and similar old Humbers, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
