But do they actually dismantle a car like that nowadays before disposing? I thought they just put it in the smasher and squeeze it into a tiny cube.

Nope, every part is being dismantled. Only the metal is going to the smasher. Other parts, like seats, plastics, dash etc. is going through a separate recycling procedures.

The yellow (scattered seat parts) is the foam innards. The seats in the car itself don't look like Natural Brown Leather (which I have) so you may have a nit here to pick.....

On a serious note, cool pix.
