More information on this Jaguar:
In the mid 90s this scrapyard was full of older cars - mainly Jaguar XJ6s it has to be said. Seen here are two very early Jaguar XJ6 saloons. The lower car being G-reg must be one of the very first XJ6s as the model came out in 1968. The 3rd car up is probably an XJ too and looks slightly precarious teetering on the roof of the red Jag. In the background is a slightly later Series 2 XJ.
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 XJ6 would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Jaguar XJ6, 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 XJ6, and similar old Jaguars, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
