It was a sad and sorry day when the crushers destroyer many dozens of brand new and hardly used 45's, 75's 25's MGTF's and even Vans.

The saddest of all was to see a glorious 75 limousine in moonstone green, with all the toys and less than 30k on the clock go into the crusher.

Can anyone explain why on earth this was allowed to happen? I literally don't understand why anyone would crush perfectly saleable vehicles/
Public liability/tax/warranty etc. Same as why prototypes usually get destroyed, even if they are fully functional vehicles (unless they sneak out of course...).
