With the exception of my old Tipo, I'm happy to see any and all cars recycled, preferably to make non polluting items.
The only problem, manufacturers tend to produce more cars.

What to do with waste batteries could be a major problem for future generations.
Whatever, there'll always be some type of problem caused by our need for personal transport.

Re: Launch Date?

Don't get me wrong, I completely agree with cars being recycled, but only once they're no longer serviceable.

Welcome to germany land of heated garages for car storage and some of the best highest paying scrappage schemes in the world.

All these cars will have been traded in as scrappage cars and so have to be scrapped. there were some 'problems' in the past with people smuggling these cars out to other countries as they are all in such good condition but the german authorities soon put a stop to that.

All the models in the Video are early 2000s cars, its an old looking video, going by the technology being used I would hazard a guess it was filmed in the mid to late 2000s.
