More information on this Skoda:
I'm told that this is a Skoda 1000 from 1967-1969. It was seen in 1999 abandoned near a tree in North Portugal. There isn't a huge old-car following over that way as far as I know so I doubt this one will be restored.
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 Skoda above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular 1000 would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Skoda 1000, 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 1000, and similar old Skodas, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
