I BOUGHT a WRECK! This was My First Car

Sadly, there's no fairytale ending to the hunt for my first ever car! It was once a lovely 2005 Renault Clio, and is now a crushed wreck of scrap metal. However, after tracking it down, I had to buy back what is left of it to keep so the memories can live on!
A while ago I started the hunt to see if I could find my first car, that I had owned from 2005-2008 and driven 30,000 miles including so many memories, with an idea that it could be a great addition to my future Shmuseum. With records showing at the time that it was still on the road, we managed to trace it to a used car dealer and then eventually to the owner, however I was just too late...
Right before, it had been involved in a little fender bender, nothing huge but unfortunately enough to write-it off by insurance due to the low value of the car (around £1,000 in good condition) and that meant it had to legally go to a breakers to be crushed. The hunt was well and truly on to try and find it before that would happen but unfortunately it was again just too late, it had become a box of scrap metal.
However, with the help of @tomthecardude, we managed to find the scrap yard that had it, and they helped dig it out and eventually transport it to Dub Customs to now decide what we do next! In some form it needs to be turned into furniture, a sculpture, some small parts, or something so that the memory of the Clio can live on from here. Perhaps we can start unfolding some metal, pulling out various parts from within, maybe get lucky and find the chassis plate, there are lots of ideas floating around.
To go and see it, I was keen to bring out the Senna, both for a drive, but also to have what's left of the first car I ever owned alongside the craziest car that has ever been one of the Shmeemobiles. While this might not have been the perfect outcome for the story, looking at the positive side it will be great to make something of it and in some form keep a part of it forever.
Thanks for watching, Tim

Well I managed to get back my first ever car, but it's definitely not what it was! After hearing it had been involved in a wreck and written off by insurance, the hunt was on to track it down... The question now, is what to do next with it?!

Thank you for mentioning lane etiquette. I've never been to Germany but I've heard it's one thing they're great at when it comes to driving. Here in the US, people are terrible, even where the law states "Keep right except to pass".

You could put a good size portion in a plastic cube on a turn table with colored lights emitting from under it ,up through it. You could have a shop cut a big junk out of it beforehand and use some of the parts like you mentioned. Have fun. ! Chain it down with warning sign' saying do not attempt to drive it away under penalties!

I would go at it with a sawzall and some good gloves until you find the VIN TAG. Then try to remove anything sharp. I would leave it as is, and figure out how to mount it on some sturdy casters so you can move it around.
