CARS THE LAST SCRAPPAGE SCHEME KILLED
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.
