To the joy of middle class people everywhere, who can continue to trade in third cars for brand new cars (Because lets face it, skint people who run a banger because its all they can afford cannot afford a new car even with scrappage), the scrappage scam has been extended. Your tax money can continue to save people who fancy a brand new Korean car money! Excellent news. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/8278679.stm Also good to hear is that you can now scrap cars made in 2000 under the scheme so if you are sick of that banger of a Ferrari 360 or your V plate Toyota Celica, perhaps that shonky old Honda S2000, you to can force it to be scrapped. Did anyone see this weeks Autocar? 2 page spread on the cars being scrapped under scrappage. They included: Mint condition 1997 Mercedes E320 with 80k miles Mercedes CLK320 Mk4 Golf 20k mile Honda Civic ESi 18k mile Rover 800 on a T plate - the last made. Numerous other mint perfectly serviceable cars. Sigh. Hyundai will be happy.
