I have owned this Omega for over 13 years, a record for me, but now it has to go, witnessed by son and grandson. Charles Trent gave me 184 for it, and the friendly driver let my grandson look into his cab.

Did you have to haggle for 184? They quoted me 122 today for my estate 😞
Trent offered me 184, the Liverpool lot offered me 134. My local scrappy pays me about 80.

I think Terry's was a 3.0 with a manual box. Might have made a difference.  :-\
Can they learn whether manual or auto from the registration number? Log book said 2003 3.2 petrol police special, that could be either.

Did you phone Charles Trent direct or use the scrap my car price comparison sites  :-\
the car needs to be complete to get the best price
we got offered 150 for the W reg astra estate via the scrap website
that was Charles Trent , the high offer
the price changes depending how you get paid too

Once again, I think the 'special' translates as manual.

It doesn't. ;)

Special refers to the trim level, identifying the car as a non retail, special order model. Options included gearbox choice, diff choice, alternator/battery choice etc...

I logged into the Charles Trent web site, inserted reg. no. and post code, and up came the offer of 184. A women rang later with enquiries about when would be convenient to collect,  payment method, etc.

Scrap is a reasonably volatile commodity, especially mixed scrap.

My mate whom I helped kill a 206 got 40 for the rolling shell from a chap on face ache. ;)

To sell on?  Surely, if Terry Paget has to remove, he may as well sell himself :P

Getting a gearbox from Somerset to Liverpool would surely dent any profit to be had.

Depends on how much they are being sold for, not counting the rest of the parts :-X
