Default Possible useful Scrap Cars for spares in OXFDS.

Needing some parts for his various cars, my older son Martin took some images of various cars which may be of interest to me and others in this yard he visited on Saturday :~

Smiths of Bloxham.

Images included two 75 Tourers with still lots of possible donor useful parts. MG ZS, MGFs TFs you name it. As well as lots of other stuff. I removed a Turbocharger from a low mileage MG ZT 1.8T there a few years ago and prices in this remove it yourself yard are usually very reasonable.

POST CODE for the SatNav :~ OX15 4HD

Just a few miles South of Banbury. Oh yes, if you go, wrap up warm and well. It's bluddy cold working in those yards this time of year.... My visits are very few and far between when its this cold.

Iíve got a near complete car for breaking but Iím not interested in going down the trader route on here. Once Iíve got the wheels off (locking wheel nuts)it will be off to the scrap man.

I would not expect that you would need to be a trader to break 1 car and share with members. IT would be a shame for it to go to the scrap yard and by pass members

I had a Rover 45 a couple of years ago with a duff engine. Told by a moderator I was not allowed to advertise on here unless I paid the fees. Got to look at it from both sides. Its not my full time job so I could be denying a trader an income.

Thatís the one. It was collected today. It was beyond saving. Sills were horrendous, clutch was gone and being a basic spec it was rather unloved. A member on here who lives near to me had the front bumper and fan after hitting a deer! My only gripe was that I could not remove the locking wheel nuts and said goodbye to nearly new tyres.:

You can step up to trader on a monthly basis, £8.34 a month.
