More information on this Triumph:
Looking to the heavens won't do this Triumph Herald any good sadly. It looks to have suffered badly with corrosion and by now (this photo was taken in 1995) will have probably been melted down at the scrapyard. Note the sign in the van rear window below - recycled Ferrari. Hmm.
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 Triumph above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Herald would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Triumph Herald, 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 Herald, and similar old Triumphs, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
