One of the poor cars at my son's wrecking business. The crushers are in this week - everything is getting squashed into bales. Over 200 cars. I can't help thinking, as I watch their destruction, that once upon a time they were the source of pride and excitement - new cars just out of show rooms. Some have grown old and decrepit, some have met violent ends. Sad.
So many outtakes it's not funny. I've had half a dozen things in and swapped them, and swapped back and fiddled and swapped again and swapped back. It's time to just let it be.
