About scrapping cars.  The wealthiest man I know has kept his early 20th c. Cadillac because he had the funds and the fascination to do so.  Most if not all old cars were scrapped to provided reusable steel to make weapons, and more cars. What we didn't use, we sent overseas after WWII for the purposes of ship building and automobile manufacturing.
