- Dead Fire Vehicles here are the speciality.

Looking back at a Scrapyard with a difference

We often see scrapyards dedicated to one marque manufacturers but not often emergency service vehicles breakers, here is one place I found in France

So there I am passing garage to garage, I am trying to find parts for cars I own and it why I'm here where I am now inside a small scrapyard behind an independent garage which is located out front, there is a small collection of fire vehicles out front (they have many more to see nowadays), these types of old school breakers yards are disappearing these days, mind I was here 10 years ago, but the site now holds a proper pompier hanger with many vehicles to see.

I never expected the trucks, I enjoyed that, it was a pleasant surprise, but further back was the bit I came here for, the cars and well, they were random, could have took the CX home but sadly there are no car parts here for me today.

I took these pictures 10 years ago and I hear the Panhard PL17 has been sold, but as I said earlier do stop and visit if your ever on the D948 between Confolens and St Maurice des Lions, Its a huge hanger that now holding lots of different fire equipment from different eras, back in 2016 they brought a few to show at the car event being held locally in St Mathieu, which I happened to snap at the time.
