Is that heap outside Tescos a Chevy Monza? One of the better looking septics of the malaise era, I'd say.

Miraculous spots, as always.

Thank you guys!

Have another Compagno! I saw this one last year, but was until now unpapped.

Posted Image

And also just for Michiel, yet more photos of the Publica.

Posted Image

Is that back window hinged at the top I wonder? Camera through the fence, hence the weird angles.

Posted Image

Nearby, possibly only the second AX I've found here. A 14TGS if memory serves.

Right you are!

I remember this face-lifted R9 being advertised locally a few years ago. It looked rather smarter then, but the stoved in back door was mentioned. As was the 1.5vvti engine from a Vios or summert.

Posted Image

That thing passing is a step-thru and side-car, with a canopy over the driver, delivering unsecured cooking gas bottles.
Bonuses in the background here too, including a Mira Classic and a Cedric 230!

Posted Image

A failed attempt as the latter passed...

Posted Image

Another re-spot. Previously photographed with a plain cream roof.

Posted Image

Setting up the evening food stall:

Posted Image

There is often some tatty example for sale at this spot (previously the stratospheric Peugeot 505 to name one).

Posted Image

At many intersections there are hawkers selling to the waiting cars, often little jasmine garlands for the mirror, this one has a sort of crispy dry pancake. Of course the camera came out for the CX, but the bike jumped in!

Posted Image

Some more from the streets close to home:

Posted Image

Another 323-esque Ford Laser. On Lancer Mk4 steels(?)

Probably a Mk2 Corolla before the Nissan wob job. On the same rims.

Krujoe got to within a stone's throw of Laos last year so I thought I'd just add a few from over the border. There is the odd 2CV and Renault 4 still biffing around but i haven't had the chance to snap them. Some old colonial untouched architecture may be of interest too.

any better? The back one looks to be a 2-door and I was thinking a Ford of some sort. The 4 door is likely to be French tbh, just about every car in Savannakhet (backwater town and 400 miles from Vientiane) at that time would have been French. I assumed 404 but can't convince myself. Next time I get some time away from site I'll have another look. Doubt any of them will be moving much in the near future.

Thank you CT for those pictures, interesting stuff. Some of those busses and trucks are similar to the older stuff here, but I see very few old French cars. I have only ever spotted two or three 2CVs, one of which had come overland from France. Never seen a Renault 4.
My first thought was that your saloon might be a fintail Merc, though I’m probably wrong.

Posted Image

Posted Image

The pick-up is an Isuzu Faster, the kinky little suage line gives it away:

Posted Image

I'm no use on the other two though.

Here's the 2CV again:
Posted Image

Some more recent spots now. Also a long way from home was this serious looking piece of kit, on 'Outback Australia' plates.

Posted Image

After what I was just saying about how rare AXs are here, I have not one, not two, but three more for you!
This one I have seen a couple times under a local book shop - obviously owned by someone working upstairs.

Posted Image

The second is also on Chiang Mai plates, but spotted on a trip up to Chiang Rai, the northern-most province of Thailand.

Posted Image

Also a night shot in Chiang Rai, this one's locally registered.

Posted Image

Before you ask, they are all the real deal, not those funny Malaysian efforts... (I'm saving some of those for later!)

This caught my eye as we waited for our grub at a roadside stall; a naked Publica!

Posted Image

Completely scrubbed clean of all its paint, hopefully half way through prepping for a shiny new coat. I've seen some ropey looking examples in the past, so maybe it is a re-spot.

I was only just quick enough to get this one too... a Compagno pick-up no less!

Posted Image

It did look fetching in new red paint, (and on those Lancer wheels again,) but check out this honey:

Posted Image

Spotted under a friend's condo building. Apparently it lives there.

Posted Image

This is where our 850 stays when we're away; it keeps good company.

Posted Image

So now we're up to a whole EIGHT Compagnos I've seen in this town! Catch of the Day, natch.

Was thinking a second generation (62-67) Toyota Crown for the 4 door, perhaps fitted with extra chrome around the window frames? (apologies for large pic)

Dan, I thought you were onto something. Until I looked at the sills, they're quite different.

Anyhoo, this evening, I am mostly fueled by something called "Kaltenberg Pils". The six-pack was a present my wife picked up for me when she stepped over the border at Mae Sai/Tachilek on the northernmost tip of the country, in the province of ChiangRAI. It costs 500B (£10) for foreigners to cross the bridge to Burma, but Thais only pay 20B, so I stayed on this side with a mate while the girls did what they do best. (Shopping.)

Posted Image

North of us is just a small corner of eastern Burma between here and South-East China. Thailand has a long history of Chinese immigrants, and this is more evident the further north you go (Yaowarat is the exception... more of that later...) In Chiang Rai many of the signs are in Chinese, and there are a lot more obviously Chinese faces:

Posted Image

SHITE SPOTTINGS:

Posted Image

Posted Image

What? And why?

Posted Image

A mobile PA of questionable taste, built on a Nissan NV, and probably designed for advertising. These trucks blare their way around town at walking speed with big hoardings on the sides. They are deafeningly loud and hold up the traffic. But the Thai’s don’t get annoyed, nor do they listen to the message - a complete waste of time and space imho.

As we headed north to Mae Sai we stopped off for gas on the edge of town. An LPG fill up takes a bit longer than petrol, so I wandered across the concrete to snap this rather smart 132.

Posted Image

Posted Image

I was also spending a moment admiring the C5 when a chap came out of the office and called me inside. A confirmed Citroenut!

Posted Image

He was proud to show off his office accessories; he told me the coffee table was made from a CX steering wheel, the leather sofa lifted from an XM…

Posted Image

…and the stereo was mounted in a Xantia dash.

Posted Image

Posted Image

On the walls he had models of almost every Citroen I could name!

Posted Image

Unsurprisingly the C5 (a rare thing here) was off the road in need of parts from overseas. This time: hydraulic pump failure. More of a surprise is the way he’s finding parts; he was waiting for a front cut to come from Japan! I have seen stacks of imported front cuts in Chiang Mai, but they have mostly been run-of-the-mill Jap crap.

I could have chatted for hours, but there were 10 of us going up to Mae Sai, and half the group was waiting up the road in a pick-up. I promised I'd call in next time we are in town.

More from Mae Sai:

Posted Image

Posted Image

Available for hire:

Posted Image

Posted Image

And now some Burmese shite from close to the border crossing.

Posted Image

Posted Image

These are well cool - check out the skylights!
Talking of “cool”… Catch of the day:

Posted Image

This jalopy was at the front of the queue of traffic waiting to cross. I was alarmed to see fuel pissing out the bottom of the tank straight onto the hot cylinder head!

Posted Image

There was a Thai policeman right there, and I pointed it out to him and the Burmese driver, then we all had a good laugh as they told me it was water for cooling. Burmese Lifan Hybrid Cooling FTW!

Posted Image

Verdict on the Kaltenberg: nice enough for a lager, I'll take it over a dirty Chang any day, but it's no Taylor's Landlord.
G'night all!

Thank you! The script on those number plates near the border is Burmese:

You probably think the Thai script is equally weird, I know I did! But I'm picking it up slowly.

Posted Image

I'm GR8 with reading the province names from number plates! Writing Thai is still a distant dream though, I'll never completely master that.

DSDriver, I'm sure I have some more roof racks for you if that's your thing!

If I HAD to own an Escort, it would look something like this. Or a RS2000 4x4. The ‘smiley’ MK5 facelift was not a bad effort at all. Nice colour and spec too, this one.

Posted Image

A rare thing in Thailand. As are Mondeos. There are a few Mk1s about but I've not yet seen a particularly pappable example.


Posted Image

Some more evening shots for you. I prefer a more natural photo, so I resist using the flash whenever I can get away with it; perhaps more than I should, because the 'noise' from mega-ISO creeps in. Hey ho.

Posted Image

These Bay window efforts are not uncommon in the hippy north of Thailand, but I have noticed this year that an overwhelming majority of them have been converted into fashionable coffee bars. Like the cream one in the background. How original. Have a brown one. As yet unconverted, but already piled up inside with café supplies…

Posted Image


The next morning I spied this Cedric first from hour guest house balcony.

Posted Image

The owner was giving it a wash outside his bicycle rent and tattoo shop, so we had a good chat about all sorts.

Posted Image

The car is for sale: B150,000 = £3k.

Posted Image

It’s pretty much original under the skin and has never let him down, even on notoriously tough mountain roads.

Posted Image

The panels look to have been beaten and then varnished over as the patina has started.

Posted Image

I found it more attractive than I should be admitting here. Is therefore Catch of the day.

Posted Image

Also on offer there wash this little thing, I guess some of you might enjoy it? 20,000B = £400.

Posted Image

Selling car and bike, he must be flitting; he did ask me about how he might go about trying to find work in England. He doesn’t know how lucky he is right now…

Regarding motors in Thailand.. As your man pointed out pretty much on page one, you really appreciate anything with four wheels. Virtually every vehicle has a taxi existance... With a pick up you're likely to be carting six people and half a ton of shopping. They are buying your meal, your beer.
Not much keeps it's original engine if some resourceful souls can find a cheap alternative.
Of course, in the sun, these cars merely sit and bake.
I was going to post some pics, but you have to go thru a doodah site to upload em. Chiang Mai and Bangkok have alot of what this site would see as gems... So much so that you could do with a "rep" photographing and finding a price the owner would part with. Cars etc hold their price very well,. Labour is cheap and very resourceful..
And that eternal sun creates a time machine for motors that have sagged in half thirty years ago here in AutoShitey! :mrgreen: .

I think the Ford Magentis is some form of 97-02 Mazda 626 based thing. Ford just badge engineered Mazdas in the 1990s to give them a range to sell in South East Asia - the Bongo Friendee was sold as the Ford Freda, for example.

On the saloon from a couple of pages back, I reckon a Fiat 1800 from 59-67, like this one:

Yay!
ChinaTom's been on!

I think the Ford Magentis is some form of 97-02 Mazda 626 based thing.

Good effort dear friend, but incorrect.

'Magentis' - that would be Kia, and although Kia and Ford have had some shared projects (eg Pride/Festiva/Maz121), Ford
didn't sell anything by that name.
The 626 was widely re-badged as the Ford Telstar. I have not seen any 97-02 shape Telstars, but the previous generation
are a very occasional spot.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Beaded seat covers FTW.

Posted Image

This blue one is labelled TX5, but that's bobbins.

CTom's Ford is one class smaller; a Laser Tierra like this:

Posted Image

Ford obviously figured that Asia-Pacific wasn't ready for the radical new Focus in 1999 or whenever it was, so they played it safe with a re-skin of the Mazda Protegé 323, another immensely forgettable model. I have a borrowed pic until I feel frisky enough to find my own.

Posted Image

Re-badging silliness is much in evidence here.

The 405 again:

Are you in a Laotian or Cambodian vehicle there CT? Looks LHD and the tax disk isn't Thai. In Thailand the year is 2555! The Thais love it; 555 sounds like 'ha ha ha' in Thai. They use '555' instead of 'lol'.
I think your spot might be a Mazda 808:

Posted Image

Or possibly an 120Y, but the front end is dissimilar to both.

Posted Image

Decide for yourselves. And no, I'm quite sure it's not an RX3.


http://i927.photobucket.com/albums/ad112...

No idea. Candidates for Mr Bickle's collection probably


The red one I thought was a Datsun N10 because of the ridges on the bonnet...

Posted Image

...but more likely it's a Mk3 Corolla E30.

Posted Image

Neither of those are particularly uncommon, but the the blue one of CT's pair is more of a mystery.
Another look:

Posted Image

My guesses are 124...

Posted Image

...128...

Posted Image

...or even a Mazda 800 because of the shoulders on it...

Posted Image

But I can't see any hinges or filler cap on Tom's.
And none of my guesses have the ridge down the middle of the boot lid. Any better ideas, you lot?


On the saloon from a couple of pages back, I reckon a Fiat 1800 from 59-67, like this one:

I reckon you are correct on this one! You're closer than the rest of us anyway, well done old bean!

I'll leave you with this mega-shite Catch of the Day. I've been puzzling over it for months, wishing I'd had a closer look when I papped it. I have not seen another one.

Posted Image

It has me vexed. The flanks look similar to AnthonyG's Fiat 1800 (I've never knowingly seen one), but the ends don't match. Komatsu? I think not.

Yay!

...or even a Mazda 800 because of the shoulders on it...

I'd agree it's one of these perhaps in two door format (hence the lack of visible rear quarter light?)

Even has the protruding door handles.
Tell it like it is...NOT how it should be ;)

i suspected that blue one might cause a few problems. That ridge on the boot is a blade of grass - don't let my crappy photography fool you! Next time I pass I'll stop for a better look. I thought MAzda 800 when I first saw it, as there are a few pick-ups still knocking around; but the rear door window isn't right. Honda 1300 was another initial thought, but definitely not. Compagno Berlina?

The first one is a 120Y - you can't go 10 minutes without seeing one it seems.

That was a Cambodian vehicle, cutting through Thailand on our way from Oudon Meanchay to Savannakhet, Laos.
