More information on this Rover:
This Rover I suspect dated to the pre-war era and was photographed in a Welsh garage in 1993 with the owners permission. He had a few classics as I recall so this one was in safe hands with a bit of luck.
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 Rover above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Saloon would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Rover Saloon, 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 Saloon, and similar old Rovers, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
