Its not a "tow" truck in that sense, more like a garbage collector. That truck had no wheels on the rear, it had probably been there for so long that the owner was forced to agree with a removal of any sort. Or simply, the owner just wanted to get rid of it and hired the truck. Hard to say, but one thing is for sure, that truck is NOT intended to use for cars that are meant to be operational afterwards, its a pure garbage disposal in that sense.

#2 why would they do that with a perfectly intact car??! What a waste - even if the engine would be damaged, there are so many parts that can be cleanly and safely reused :S

#5 yes, but its not meant to be gentle in any way. At that point, the cars are either illegally imported, or used in criminal activities (or anything that makes them illegal) and are to be scrapped. There is no where in the world where this vehicle would be seen as a towing vehicle. The term "tow" is basically to have something dragged behind you. In this case, the car goes straight into the garbage bin, never intended to be functional again.
some places they can't use the cars for the reason i posted above. If a car is illegal, the government cannot use it either. The cars might also have a defect that we cannot see, like a rusted cage or severe fractions somewhere, making it unfit to repair due to costs.

#7 good sensible reasons, but that doesn't preclude that it can be stripped for spare parts first.

#8 i know what you mean, and i would totally support it. But the thing is that it costs to have these things done. Labour is never free. There is no system for exchanging information about these parts that can be taken. But i do believe that if you visit a scrapyard, you can either get for free, or for a small pay, get to pick stuff. But the people who have the mission of "cleaning up the spot" with a car in, they don't have the resources to do anything about it. And even tho its hard to imagine, sometimes the parts are not worth it due to a lot of things (for the people in question that is). It would maybe be a huge benefit in an underdeveloped country, but how to get it there? As you see, i keep coming back to money, cause thats what its all about. If it was profitable to strip the cars, they would have.

I am sure Burimi was saying it tongue -in -cheek referring to that scrap metal truck being a tow truck.
