But we only see a rear light, and not the license plate.

Trash can : Cheesy:

I think, without being 100% sure (only 98%), that it's a photomontage...(see the embellishments)

It's the magic of the net: the fake (this montage) circulates more than the real one (my trailer) : Lol: : Lol: : Lol:

Most of my cars end up being scrapped at around 400 km... For a matter of good conscience... Very often they could still be driven but I refuse to sell them to a poor person who will automatically end up in trouble in the car. weeks to come...

Tranquility is priceless

After dismantling and flash sale on leboncoin and others of what is still recoverable, the crate ends up on my trailer at the scrapyard...

Last summer a 205 diesel had the same fate... in 48 hours I sold trinkets and cosmetic parts for 800 euros... The mechanics (running gear motor) stayed on my hands for months. .. The engine that I was selling for 50€ (160km) and the rear axle (almost new) for 000€...Incomprehensible...They ended up in scrap metal...On the other hand, the slightest comodo button on the door handle lifted glass .... Everything is gone .... Incredible the number of paypal transfers has 20 5 8 €....

It's great to be a good mechanic like you.

I have another friend in Nice who buys cars from the 1990s for less than €100 and restores them almost to new.

Clutch, brake, etc... The advantage of cars from these years is that they rust less than those of the 60s-70s-80s, and there are still quite a few spare parts.

Yeah....Except when you sell one of these yongtimers to a little kid... And he turns it into a Caesar compression a few weeks later....Leaving a bereaved family (see more) behind. .. What are you doing ? even if it didn't come from the horses under the hood but from the donkey behind the wheel... What are you doing??? How to sleep??? The Leon was the car that I had bought from my son after he crashed with his golf 2 (I had wanted more passive safety) the 205 was a car bought for the second that we had to give to taste of the day. No air bag, low-cost, low-security vehicle ... Aborted project to buy a Golf 4 ... Zero regrets ....

When you pick up your 2 momes at the exit of a wreck like this one when the road exit on a puddle of oil took place at barely 70 km / h....

You say to yourself, the next one is at least a volvo, at best a sherman

By taxi my main activity is repatriation following breakdowns and minor accidents....Those I repatriate after accidents always drove recent vehicles...Those who drove in old wheelbarrows.... Generally go through the repatriation box at the CHU in VSAV

What had also been the case for my two minimacro even if they had left the vehicle very valid ...

there is crumpled sheet metal in your house : roll:

but you know, the bridge barrier concentrated the efforts, I'm not convinced that a "modern" car would do so much better on the side.
