At the end of the day theyíre his cars so his choice what to do with them. As usual people have fanciful ideas of restoring these cars but many deserving from other sources still go for scrap. They canít all be saved because people wonít put their money where their mouths are. Looking at the price on some of those cars for an enthusiast it may be worth the money but very few will do it because for most people they want their money back when they sell and sadly for most MG Rover cars thatís not going to happen yet

'Saved' for what? We will soon be driving just new electric cars. What then the future of old saved heritage cars? I've got perhaps 15 yrs of driving left, I'll just continue driving old diesels. I wouldn't want to invest good money in them, let's just drive them until we cannot, enjoying every days motoring.

Don't see us switch that soon. It's impossible to create enough battery power for us all. Already Tesla's production is being held back by lack of batteries and what percentage of vehicles being sold world wide at this point are electric? If no new types of batteries are being invented, we'll have to destroy what's left of Africa to create the necessary supply.
