The Cradle to Cradle of Cars

How long are cars used?
What happens to cars when they become obsolete?
The R's of Cars
1) Buy used cars.
2) Sell your car to junk lots. These junk lots will take sufficient car parts and these car parts will be reassembled into new cars.
3) Freecycle your cars. There is a network for you to give away your car to other people who wants to use it.
4) Donate to charities. Charities will sell sufficient car parts, which are then assembled into new cars.
5) Car parts can be scrapped. This means that the individual car parts will be melted down and sent down into steel mills where they manufacture cars again.
