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!

These used to be everywhere during the 1980s and '90s, so it's hard to believe that there are so few of them left. The Mk2 Astra was not particularly unreliable, nor did it suffer from rust any more than the other important cars in its class - on the contrary, it was a rugged and solid challenger. So, why are they disappearing so quickly? Can you get enthusiastic about a Belmont? Exactly.
