    The weight on scrap metal has gone up again. But not much! It was terrible this time last year!

    You will find that in a recession, the tatters will come out, not necessarily weigh on the metal straight away, but keep it in their yards/gardens, waiting for the right conditions/prices.

    Gold is also high at the moment. Hence the ads on TV

    Being a night time taxi driver in Essex,it is surprising how many tatty old transits you see driving about in the early hours,most times driven by a fat bloke wearing a vest and braces,

    true, saw the same guys twice in one week down my street. I think the price of scrap metal must be through the roof.

    working at a multisite garage we are regularly "visited" by tattys

    they look in the skips and round the sites - the next day ........

    all of the batterys have been taken from the battery disposal box
    the skips are nearly empty and........












    all of the cats have been stolen off of any vehicle large enough to crawl under

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven
