I recently sold an old car of mine to a scrap dealer for £140, it would have been £160 if I had delivered it myself. The car in question had no rod tax or MOT certificate, although it was in working order. I think at most I could have sold it for $400, assuming it had tax and an mot, but to get it up to that standard would have cost a few hundred pound. In the end I think I made the right decision in scrapping as I wasn't expecting as much as £140 for it. What circumstances would lead to you scrapping a car?
