Top 20: Fastest disappearing cars from UK roads

We've been crunching data again to come up with the definitive list of cars that are most rapidly disappearing from our roads - and looking at the 20 cars featured, it's a case of natural selection working in our favour.

What we did was gather the numbers of all types of cars on the road between the end of 2007 and 2011. Then, we calculated the percentage remaining for all cars at the end of the five-year period, with the intention of working out which cars are disappearing the quickest, and how many are left. If you're a fan of unloved 1990s family cars, the read 'em and weep - for they are going fast. If you want one, be quick before they're all gone!

It's fair to say that the majority of the 20,000 or so Cavaliers left are Mk3s. These tough family hold-alls were the darling of the country's reps during the early-1990s, and continue to wear well if their high survival rates until 2007 is anything to go by.

The Cavalier remains to be an honest old bus to this day - easy and cheap to fix, and admired by those who run them. They're not an enthusiast choice - as a rule - so numbers will no doubt continue to drop at the current rate in the  coming years.
