More information on this Volvo:
Suffering under the weight of a Mk2 Landcrab is this fairly rare Volvo coupe seen in 1992. These Volvos were known for rotting anyway so seeing this terminally-corroded example is no great surprise. Its doing a decent job of supporting the weighty old Morris 1800 though. Also in shot is a black Rover P4 and a Vanguard.
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 Volvo above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular P1800 would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Volvo P1800, 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 P1800, and similar old Volvos, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
