Everyone remembers their first car or the car that was most dearest to their soul. But it comes a time when you just have to man up and call professionals to scrap your car. Scrapping your car means getting rid of it or the used parts and it can be done now in a much simpler manner than before.
Believe it or not, there is a top when it comes to the cars that have a history of scrapping. The first 5 winners are just below. Are you ready to check them out?
What are the 5 Most Scrapped Cars?
1. Morris Marina – this is one of the most scrapped car in the UK in approximately 30 years. It is true that rust was a serious issue for its owners but next to this, mechanical failure and temperamental performances were the elements that made this scrapped car so interesting.
2. Ford Fiesta – according to a top created by Remove My Car, Ford Fiesta is one of the most scrapped cars across the UK. Steve Queen, the owner of Remove My Car stated that Ford Fiestas “are a very popular model of car to buy second-hand meaning they will pass through a number of owners in their lifetime. They’re often used almost constantly from the day they come off the production line, resulting in worn components and parts.”
3. Austin Allegro – this model was initially designed to compete with VW Golf but the bulging style did not appeal to many people. On the contrary: it gained a bad reputation in the press and among buyers. Unfortunately most of those who still own a car like this are now saying “please, oh please, scrap my car.”
4. Trabant – who doesn’t remember the trabant? This East German production was sold in 3 million pieces in over 30 years of production. However, the killing bureaucracy and the inefficient processes lead to a long waiting time. And after waiting for more than half their lives to receive this car, owners would come in the possession of a plastic shell that produced only 26 hp and went from 0-62 mph in 21 seconds. Sad!
5. Vauxhall Corsa – apparently, this model was ditched more than 10,000 by owners who were searching for ‘something else.’ A newer and more evolved model maybe. The owners who had cars that were registered in the UK before 2000 could receive a £2,000 discount for new cars with the help of a scrappage technique. But the car had to be registered with the owner for at least 12 months, with insurance and a MOT certificate.
These are some of the most scrapped cars that influenced the evolution of the automotive industry. Would you care to share with us the last car your scrapped?
