Re: I think I'm about to cry...

We spoke about him before and I will stick to not dealing with him...the panda business is not sustainable for him and what he has left over will be weighted in or dumped.

No doubt he reads this forum and is laughing down his sleeve.

Re: I think I'm about to cry...

mmm... while I agree he shouldn't break the rarer models and it breaks my heart to see these Pandas up for scrap, I believe in order for us to keep our cars on the road some sacrifices have to be made.
While scrapping a more popular car model (fiesta, corsa or whatever) might have more of a market, they are also easier to sell complete. Pandas have a limited market and I think in a way this man is sort of doing us a favour by being a bit more ruthless than any of us could be.
I think we all wish we could save all Pandas, but life is not fair, is it?
I look at it as recycling, at least we get a chance of getting our hands on some spares, instead of the whole lot getting weighted in.
Think of all the mk1 punto owners calling us (or at least myself and a few others) all the names under the sun because of the amount of 1242's we had off their cars.

Re: I think I'm about to cry...

Pandas have a limited market, you're joking right?

Destroying a road going vehicle is not recycling, scraping a mass MOT failure or written off vehicle for parts is recycling.

I suspect a lot of donor Punto's have been cars without and MOT or good for salvage only

Well, he's learning. Listing in the OP is off and the other items have now stopped bragging about how many minters he's got breaking at the moment.

As discussed before he reads the forum to see what parts people need and then lists them
