Best place to get rid of an old car with no tax or MOT left?

Found 29th May 2008
I'm guessing the scrap yard? It's an N Reg Rover 216si but the tax runs out on Saturday and the MOT in a few weeks time. I wouldn't describe it as well looked after cosmetically but it still runs really well - I suppose not really worth buying the tax or MOT just to get rid of it?

Look in the back of your local newspaper, some ads usually say "we'll give you £100 for any car" etc.

if you just want rid of it - ring your council and they will take it away for you free of charge

I might be interested, where are you based?
