I have made a thread in the spotted forum where I post all of my car spots, but I think this deserves a thread of its own. Basically, this is just an old scrap yard, with really old cars, and if you want a part you just find the car yourself and take the part yourself. The owner tells me there is around 3,000 vehicles on site; cars, vans, trucks, buses etc. Hundreds of cars have been recycled from the 'collection'. Due to pressure from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), places like this will never be seen again. This is believed to be the only scrapyard like this left in Ireland. It should take me weeks, if not months to upload all of these photos. I hope people don't mind me uploading them to here, I'm just looking to share them. Thanks, and enjoy.

Yes, it was rolled. the chassis is bent on it. Its not fit for parts, just scrap. The older 7 series and the E34 were in good nick, shame to see them there. I would much prefer the Nova, Metro, Seicento, Cinquecento etc over the BMWs tbh.

Indeed. I am a fan of BMWs, older models like the E34, E32, E30 (when standard and low spec) etc etc

I'd LOVE another BMW E28. I had a 525e years ago, and it was nice to drive and stupidly reliable :/

I must say, my favorite BMW has to be the E34.

Image
Image

This was my uncles E34 518i, which he has had since 3 years old. It had 21 service stamps in the service booklet and all of them were from the supplying dealer in Dublin. I sold it for him last month, luckily I got to drive it around for a bit. I was tied up with my own cars at the time so I couldn't buy it from him.

Indeed, most E34s have had a hard life over here, but this was a well cared for example. He has a new F10 5 series now, I think its the only petrol one I have ever seen.

E34>F10...it seems he too is a BMW enthusiast?! Hopefully the 518, is looked after, it'll be worth a pretty penny in years to come... :aviator :)

It has been E30>E34>F10. He is an enthusiast, takes pride in his car and looks after it very well.
