Don't worry - that's a different car! I've just been on BX World cos I didn't believe he would have scrapped it. If you look closer the registration numbers are different, ending 76 and 78. Also the one in the scrap yard has a supplying dealer sticker on the tailgate and also has much clearer and less faded badging.

Still sad that such a rare car was seen in a scrapper just a year ago. Only 300 Leader breaks were made!

Good luck finding one Chris! A source I saw the other day suggested that 500 were produced, not 300. Still blinkin' rare though!
