More information on this Renault:
Another Portugal 'find' this time a little Renault (8?) seemingly dumped on some land in front of a D series Ford lorry. This Renault looks to have been looked after at one time - note the smartly painted wheels and optional chrome spot lamps.
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 Renault above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular 8 would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Renault 8, 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 8, and similar old Renaults, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
