CARS THE LAST SCRAP­PAGE SCHEME KILLED

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Front Page - DAVID SIMIS­TER EDI­TOR

HER­ALDS It’s hard to be­lieve 16 peo­ple thought sign­ing a death war­rant for a Tri­umph Her­ald was worth the £2k dis­count on a new car. That should never hap­pen again. JAMES SADLIER MAN­AG­ING EDI­TOR MON­DEO MKI Al­most 300 Ford Mon­deo GLXs were scrapped in the 2009 cull. Dis­grace­ful. See page 22 for a fine Mon­deo MkI that avoided be­ing con­signed to an early grave. GER­VAIS SEY­MOUR PRO­DUC­TION EDI­TOR AUDI AVANT As a for­mer Audi 100 Avant CD owner, I was shocked to learn that 10 ‘Audi 100 Series’ had been weighed in, as well as two Audi ‘Avant’, one Audi ‘Avant 100 L’, one Audi ‘Avant CC Auto’, an Audi ‘Avante’ and an Audi ‘Avant CD’. DAVID BROWN AS­SO­CIATE EDI­TOR VW GOLFS More than 7000 VW Golfs were traded in un­der this vile scheme in 2009. Never again, surely. MUR­RAY SCUL­LION NEWS EDI­TOR MON­TROSE Some­one scrapped a Mazda Mon­trose. If it was a Coupé the world is a much sad­der place. CALUM BROWN WEB PRODUCER P38 We should count our­selves lucky that only 44 Range Rover P38s were scrapped. With­out their fuel con­sump­tion our NHS would col­lapse through lack of fund­ing. NICK LARKIN EDI­TOR AT LARGE MIDGETS I still find it ex­tra­or­di­nary that some­thing like 60 MG Midgets were handed in for the 2009 Scrap­page.
