For all you "location" junkies out there - the scrap yard used in the filming of this series was in Rampart Road on the banks of the River Itchen (next to Northam Bridge and diagonally opposite the old Southern and then Meridian TV studios) in Southampton, Hampshire, UK.
The site has since been redeveloped and is now covered with swanky apartments units.
The yard's operators were Ted and Tom Holden - my father's step brothers. Many's the day I would climb round the yard looking for 'treasure' - Still got a Chrome Viking from the bonnet (hood) of a Rover.
I am also surprised the series made US screens.
