Sorry if this is in the wrong bit of the forum, I couldn't find a more suitable area to put it.

Toledo residing on top of a container in Johnson's scrapyard, Crowland Industrial Estate, Southport.
Looks to be pretty complete, but it's difficult to be sure because access is difficult.

There's a Midget next to it, too.

Got a picture....here's hoping it attaches ok....

Worth a short trip to Southpost Ben, go for it. I almost hoped the reg was going to be NLE, but then I realised that was just silly :(

That looks to be well worth saving... Being a P-reg' it is one of the last of the Toledo's... :shock: That is far too good to scrap really (but then who knows that it looks like on the other side?!?!?!)... :wink:

Yes it is a late model, has the reversing lights too which I believe were a dealer fit option

So, it's too posh to be scrapped I reckon.

Someone save it (please [-o< )

Been to look at this today, (from down on the floor as the yard was closed), the passenger door is now totally open, so since Tony took the photo, someone now has opened the door! looks a bit too far gone for me to take on, but its complete and has a local reg, so its probably not been far in its life!

It also appears to have a tow bar fitted!

I would be very surprised if that car is still there.

(look at the date on the thread)
