MEGABUMP INDEED!

This is still the best thread on Autoshite, I might go all the way through it again tomorrow. I think Michiel is correct, no drop-top Coronas, but that one would've started out as a lovely 2dr hardtop version which is still an incredible spot, even in its butchered state

It was indeed very clean, looked to be fresh out of the paint shop. Can't really see in my pics, but the yellow had a nice pearl effect.
Do you have any more in you?
OK then, another angle:

It matches the curb nicely, don't you think?

When she'd finished parking it up, we bought some freshly cut watermelon and guava from the owner of this fruit stall.
On the ice in the cabinets I can see watermelon, papaya, guava, rose-apples and jack-fruit.
The craftsmanship of the conversion was rather special, but distinctly northern Thai in style! The lady was proud to explain her husband had constructed it for her.
While she was slicing and bagging, this passed by:

That Galant looks very much like one I papped cruising one night in Bangkok* a couple years ago. I'm sure it can't be the same one, I won't go checking now.

:D Michiel, grab a cheap flight, I'll aid negotiations, you drive it home. Deal?

Barrett's not wrong, Sunny B110 / 1200 (I think), and certainly worth a mention, they're not as common as the later ones. I'm sure someone will get around to resurrecting this one, but the workshop behind had plenty of work on when I papped it!

More Datsun action...

Posted Image

Yet another configuration of Mira.

Posted Image

Though this one doesn't look like a factory option!

Posted Image

Also non-standard, a typical grease-monkey's dream machine.

Posted Image

I just noticed the stool ^ made from an old clutch. If you ever stop to have your step-thru scooter tweaked, you'll see similar ones welded from sprockets and chain-rings, and may even be offered a seat on one!
Here's another bodged together tow truck. This one is an old Nissan with a newer Ford front end.

Posted Image

You'll have to take my word for the Nissan bit, I can't find another angle for you now. I know where it lives, I'll go and find it in a couple months!

Another variety of Ford Laser, this one based on a 323C:

Posted Image

Honda "Freed". Modern, but I've not seen one in the UK. And uncommon as yet in Thailand, I suspect they're either unofficial, or Honda put a premium tag on them.

Posted Image

It looks like a grown-up Jazz, and is conveniently in convoy with one. Same colour too!

Check out this big FO weapon:

Posted Image

I'm guessing the 'Jeep' badge might be a clue, but as I've said, I know nothing of American(?) stuff.

Posted Image

I did enjoy the hand-carved chock. Its thundering heart:

Posted Image

Shit or Shite? Catch of the day:

Posted Image

We had something similar in our eBay thread recently, but that had 'stacker' lights iirc.

Posted Image

Sorry for the poor night-time shots. I did go back in daylight but it was gone from the restaurant car park by then.

Thank you guys, well done Berty.

Posted Image

Sign reads 'For Sale, Cheap'.
The headlights are a puzzle though... I'm thinking Syline but probably wrong. Dunno why they bothered though, it's only the second Calibra I've seen in the country - they're rarer than Allegros, Mk1 BX's and Compagnos!

Ha ha Michiel! I did try 'Malham to Chiang Mai' on Google maps, but it spat out its dummy. Maybe because the North Sea is in the way.
I suspect the process might be slightly less simple than I intimated... however, a certain Mr Bickle has been in touch to discuss certain possibilities.

Andrew, another for you.
Complete with RAC badge, this down-at-heel Jag was probably a special import, but there are a few about. Not many.

Posted Image

None of the old British stuff is common, but I tend to pap it when I see it. The most 'common' are ADO16s, the odd Allegro etc, and a few 90's Rovers. And series Land Rovers of course. I suspect the majority were sold in Thailand officially, but were never mainstream. The Rover 600 and 800 may even have been brought in as kits and assembled locally, but I'd have to check on that. I suspect very few have come from nearby countries. Diplomatic imports might account for some.

More images for your perusal.
Apologies if I've posted any of these before; these are the last few from the current online album. Fret not, I have another album uploaded and ready to go!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Some fewer-wheeled tat.

Posted Image

This was still in single figures on the clock - brand new.

Posted Image

The brand? Not Honda, but a Thai copy "Tiger" brand. Tiger have been around a few year churning out inferior copies of various Honda step-thrus, mostly Waves, but recently they jumped on the retro bandwagon and started selling these. The cheap "Retro" badge kind of spoils it.
Their most interesting effort was a factory offroad version of the Wave 125. I think I have a photo somewhere.
Edit; here it is, the Tiger Smart CX125. It has a lever on the left, so they probably have a proper clutch. Which is nice.

Posted Image

This I found in a big junk-filled open-sided warehouse which operates as a "We buy and sell anything" store:

Posted Image

It looks nearly new. It is a sort of Tuk-Tuk thing as seen in other provinces, but this one looks Chinese. They all have rediculously steep looking fork angles.

Posted Image

"Fly Dragon" brand :D

Posted Image

I *heart* these 323s.

Posted Image

Make mine an original one, in a pale colour, without a "Powered by Mitsubishi" badge from an air-con unit, please.

Posted Image

I don't mind a modern lump shoehorned in to give it a new life, but do keep it in the family! Is there something odd about the headlights on this one?

Posted Image

I never tire of these Datsun 620s. Just so right.

Posted Image

These body-shop snaps make Catch of the Day. The CX is a rare and special sight.

Posted Image

I have photographed the Lotus before; it has been in the same state there for years, almost as a mascot at the front of the shop. A friend went to find out more about it, all he got was "Not for sale!"

Posted Image

Can anyone tell how genuine / original it is from that picture?

Thanks again F-Pop, I've really enjoyed your spotting work too.

Sooooooooo, here we are at long last, back in CM. For a cool 10 weeks! Yay!
We do deserve it, we have worked almost every day since we landed home in January.

I had wanted to prime you up with a few posts of previous years' pictures, but the last few weeks before we flew this time have been mental busy with work and stuff. I mean like 18 hours a day busy. So we're right back into it.

First off, to celebrate this week's sourcing of a potential addition to the Bickle stable, have an as yet un-posted Compagno.

Posted Image

I had forgotten about this shot, probably because it such an appalling photograph, but it popped up on my screensaver which is set to scroll through the albums on my laptop. Picasa tells me "12 Apr 2008", just before our relocation to sunny Yorkshire.

See the Catch of the Day ^up there, last time from the body-shop? Well, I went past there again today. Of course there has been no progress on the Lotus, but the CX rolling shell was looking resplendent in a new coat of metallic dark cherry red. It was near the back so sadly no picture today. I hope I get another look. On view today:

Posted Image

This place seems to specialise in rally stuff.

Posted Image

Oh dear. I see this may not end well.

Posted Image


I already have six Photobucket pages of spots from our three days here, but don't think you're having them all now! That's about 30 images a day for you lot and I haven't even been trying. God knows what figures I'll achive if I'm let loose on a bike in this town. If I keep going at this rate, p'bucket will shut me down FO SHO.
More silliness:

Posted Image

A narrowed Cefiro?

Posted Image

Nope. Nissan NV, barried. It should look more like this one with a JDM saloon grille:

Posted Image

Love thy neighbour!

Posted Image

Posted Image


This was rather special:

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

It might have made COTD had the 'poke' not have been this silly.

We took the 850 in to have the LPG system checked over after a year of doing nothing. I had a wander around their workshop:

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

At first glance nothing special...

Posted Image

...but I've not seen a 406 with a back wiper before.

Posted Image

Probably not factory, (assembled locally?) but looked well done.

I've always thought these are rather special.

Posted Image

Twin turbo'd and running on gas!

Posted Image

My old Lumix Leica is struggling increasingly with low light, and the on/off switch has a mind of its own, so may be replaced during this trip. My old boy who has serviced and repaired it in the past, has shut down his shop now, so the old faithful may be replaced during this trip.

Talking of old boys, I witnessed this piloted serenely by a gent of at least 80.

Very interesting stuff, that Pug rear wipe especially. I've been out of the UK for too long to see 406s day to day but I really thought that most sedans/saloons just didn't do rear wipes due the vortex business and the fact that the motors get in the way. If that's a real aftermarket thing then shirley someone must have drilled the glass!

Some 406's did have a rear wiper fitted on saloons, and also the top line 306 sedans did too. Seemed to be all the rage at the time, as Ford fitted them to the Ghia Si Onions too

We are on floor 14 this year, four floors above our room last year, from where I spotted the Corolla wagon in the same place.
Getting closer...

Posted Image

Last year:

Posted Image

I want to get the 850's wheels repainted, so today I made an excuse to visit the workshop. They advertise spraying at the lane end.

Posted Image

I make that a Bertone Mazda Luce, such a pretty shape from the mid 1960's. Ahead of its time.

Having a nose around inside the shed:

Posted Image

I bet this 405 shifts if they've got that lump running right. I think it's from a MR2 Turbo (fitted backwards?)!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

I've seen this out and about a few times, and previously papped, but I can't remember if it has been posted before.

Posted Image

I do remember enjoying the fact it's sporting a useful brake upgrade, and wondering if it's hiding anything else interesting under its pearly white skin.

Posted Image

A few more random spots...

Posted Image

I enjoyed the alloys on this 626. Have another navy three door Corolla:

Posted Image

This AX may be a re-spot - it's possibly the only one around - I've certainly shown you a similar one with its bonnet up, a few years back.

This Publica I think is one I've papped before in the same part of town, but it looks to have had a fresh layer of yellow applied.

Posted Image

What looks like a four door Almera is a 'Sunny Super Saloon'. BTW Nissan have just started selling a new saloon labeled 'Almera', but it's not a shape I know, maybe a facelifted four door Tiida.
