I do like a nice early Cefiro too, and I was seriously in the market for one before I bought the Volvo. The problem is, they've almost all been riced up to buggery by wanna-be drift yobs. It's sad, they're a good-looking thing.
Tom: I've spotted a handful of Allegros over here, but not a beige one!
It's weird to think that I'm more likely to spot oddball European stuff over here (where it's always been rare), than back in the UK where it was once much more common. I'm thinking Aggros, ADO16's, mk1 BX's, XM's, Renault 9's, 504's, 305's 405's, W126's and Stack-lights, and BMW E12 5-series, and 2002's.
Jon, keep at the spotting and don't let us put you off! NZ spots are always good to see. I may even get down there myself at some point - I've not yet visited my brother and his family who moved out to Wanganui about 15 years back!
Talking of Camiras, I saw this Chiang Mai registered one again today in Bang-Bua-Tong, near Bangkok.
I don't think I shared these pics before, they were taken when I first spotted it in Lampang province, on a previous drive south from CM to BKK.
It's instantly recognisable due to its beautifully* grafted in light units.
The rears are from a Triton...
And I'm thinking Accord for the fronts, thought I'm not 100%.
The front looks ok I reckon, Vulg would be proud, but the back's gopping. Still, it was a nice surprise to see it again today, so far from home.
For reference, here's a more original one from my image library:
Mitsubishi Lancer wheels on this one.
Oh, and the red one at the top of this page.
