    Default Vectra Horror! Been to a salvage yard today! Few pics

    What a horrific sight! Well its certainly an eye opener! We went to pic up a Ford Ka with hardly any damage for a quick CAT D fix up. Anyway, there were hundreds of cars, right up to 2008 Porsches & Maserati's! Its shocking to see what can happen.. and a sobering eye opener! From what i can see, all cars are cleaned of any blood on the serious accidents as the interiors looks pretty clean!

    Pic 1

    This first car was a 2005 1.9 (120) Sri Nav.. i sat inside it, internally all straight, well appart from the airbag ripped through dash board, and steering wheel! The NAV still worked fine, and was all pretty clean and straight! It sold for £1500 while i was there... and will be fixed apparently!

    Pic 2

    2008 SRi 1.9 (150) automatic, selling for £5500!! Wow! Looking at it, two doors, wing bumper & rear quarter... job done! Must be some money in it?

    Pic 3

    Not sure... but looked to be a roll?

    Pic 4

    Shocking! Not for fixing, for spares only! Had roof cut off! Every single panel wrecked! Twisted, rear wheel on far side (not in shot) folded under... This was a 2008 car with reported 7000miles on clock!

    Just hope there was no faitalities in any of these! Its a shocking and sobering reminder!!!
