I’ve read that in some Western European countries automobile manufacturers are required to provide end-of life recycling for their products. But I didn’t realize that this was one of the ways they were meeting that requirement.

I’ve owned too many cars that I’ve wanted to do this to… Naw, I’m kidding, I really wanted to drive them off cliffs, but there aren’t too many cliffs in the midwest

Yup, and the plastic wheel covers aren’t broken. Spare tire still in place. No dents or scratches. Paint still glossy. This is “art” or advertising.
Put that setup in the ‘hood in Detroit and it would be picked clean while you ate your lunch.
I came across this old Chevy last summer waiting for, ah, curbside pickup.
I’m pretty sure this is a campaign or something for recycling. Look at the sign on the side of the bin (the 2 arrows making a circle) and the painted “scrap parts” on it. That Peugeot 205 is completely intact.
That dumpster’s center of gravity has been altered in such a way that I do not want to stand near it.
