They used to...frequently. Don't you remember seeing the football pitches with the lines cleared of snow? Undersoil heating has made the pitches more playable, but they will be out there in minus temperatures this weekend.
That was before the players got paid...

The physics are pretty straightforward...

Hit square in the side by the low, pointy end of an MPV (an early Sharamblaxy by the look of it), the high centre of gravity effectively rolled into the space suddenly vacated by the chassis as it was punted out from under it. momentum then simply slid away from the point of impact.

I suspect it would look quite graceful in slow motion. On the tinternet. Not sure that I would personally wish to experience at a mere 42, let alone 97 :o

The shock might just do Prince Philip in, although he doesn't come across as being easily offended spooked...  :-\

Absolutely Big Griff
Blair, his awful wife and Brown should all be strung up for treason for what they did while in office
Rees Mog can go to the tower to, snivelling toe rag that he is
Corbyn can, along with Fatbbott, both be put out of their misery...
In My Opinon, of course :y
I would have to concur  :-X

Some vehicles, DAF to name one, kills the power to the radio and door switches whenever the door is open or reverse is selected...

All that to say, just be mindful that the door switches may not work with the driver's door open ;)

Could the weight of the head pull the support plate of vertical far enough to cause a discrepancy one end to other :-\

What about a Corsa?
Same engine family as the Astra... And we all know how that's working out.

Scrap price also depends on area
My 183 saw the car collected in Sussex and taken to Mancchester/Preston way for processing... Lord alone knows how that made sense... Wasn't even broken for spares :o

Of course, if you looked after it, the Omega would last a lot longer ::)

Certainly fixing the 2.2 Omegas would have been more cost effective  :-X
