Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

An old car reaches the end of the line mechanically, and is sent to the wreckers where it is ground into small bits of iron. These are sent to a smelter where it is processed into structural elements for buildings. We then see the owner of the first car driving a new car - beginning another cycle of use of materials.
