I have an old Lada Riva. It seems a pity to scrap it, but does it have any value?

I've inherited my father's old Lada Riva 1200. It's rusty and hasn't run for 14 years, but it was owned by him alone since new and the actual one on display at the Motor Show the year he bought it. It seems a pity to simply scrap it, but does it have any value? It has an unremarkable E-reg number plate. Is that of any value and worth retaining? Thank you for your thoughts.

While the following for Lada's is getting stronger, a typical one in this condition is probably worth about £250. However, yours is no typical car and has some decent historical value. You should make contact with the Lada Owners' Club (you can find them on Facebook). They're a great bunch and I'm sure they'll agree with me when I say the car is far too important to scrap.
