The UK Government recently released a spreadsheet of all the cars that were scrapped during the Car Scrappage scheme of 2009-2010.

Basically you could trade in your old car for a £2000 discount on a new car. The old car was then destroyed.

When these cars are part-exchanged at a dealer, they were sent to an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) for disposal, and a Certificate of Destruction (CoD) was issued – confirming the vehicle is permanently off the road – and all the fluids and pollutants have been removed. The ATF is free to dismantle and sell parts for spares, or just crush them for scrap metal.

The full list is here spreadsheet (csv): https://www.gov.uk/government/publicati ... me-in-2009

While they may not yet be considered JNC's just yet, among the Japanese car casualties are:

1 x Datsun 280zx Targa
over 500 Mazda MX-5
78 x Mazda Mx (Presumed MX-5 & MX-3 & Mx-6)
6 x Mazda Mx-3
10 x Mazda Rx-7
3 x Mitsubishi 3000 GT
63 x Nissan 200sx (S13/S14/S15)
11 x Nissan 300ZX
a Nissan Qashqai (Was only a 3 year old car at the time???)
15 x Suzuki Cappuccinos
Around 440 Toyota Celicas including 5 GT-4 and a Celica Supra
Over 330 Toyota MR-2
31 x Toyota Supras

and

A Nissan Skyline GT-R

I know it's sad to see the lists.

However, unfortunately these cars go rusty pretty badly in the UK. MX-5, AW11s, S13s, Cappuccinos - they rust away scarily quickly.
I brought a mint S13 in from Japan, undersealed it, and five years later the sill was starting to go. I sold it to a guy who worked in a bodyshop, so I'm fairly sure it's still alive, but the cars that were sold here originally are nearly all rusty to a greater or lesser extent.

I strongly suspect nearly all of the above would have needed about a hundred hours welding to bring them back, which isn't economical when there are better preserved cars out there. IMO rust killed these cars, scrappage just carted away the dead bodies.
