More information on this Jaguar:
The Jaguar shown here was photographed the very last time I went to this Cheshire scrapyard in the mid 1990s. Other photos in this section show how packed this yard was with rusting classics just a couple of years earlier. This Jag received a stay of execution so that its rare manual overdrive gearbox could be removed. Then it too would have gone for scrap. This site now has modern homes on 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 Jaguar above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Mk2 would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Jaguar Mk2, 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 Mk2, and similar old Jaguars, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
