Evening All! An update from the 'burbs.

I have previously spotted the behind of this golf but had yet to capture a full frontal.
Cop a load of the bumper ties on that!

But less of the beast, here is some beauty. Simply badged 'Coupe'

GR8 spotz! Bet the headlamp aim's good on that VW convertible. :roll: I like the detailed advertising on the 2-door Volvo, "GOOD TIRES", no mention of what the mechanicals are like... Still, if that 99k is genuine then it'll be barely run in, especially going by US standards.

GR8 spots, particularly like the trussed up Glof.Looking at that Jag, isn't it odd that something so small as a front plate can make a car look, well, not quite right?

Some very interesting scrappage there. The early sixties Thunderbirds are lovely old things but not worth much, and the 2 door 760 Ovlov is gorgeous - almost Maserati Bituro-esque. The red E30 looks like the typical rubbish examples you see in the UK but it's a 325e, 2.7 economy model with the 125 bhp high torque Eta motor.Judging by the numbers of shagged K Cars still about it looks remarkably easy to be white trash in the US. I'd love it.

I really like those Volvo Coupes, Designated a 780 IIRC.Came with V6 or 2.3 4pot Turbos. Never sold in the UK for some reason, Last one I saw was on Swiss plates.Apparently they had rust issues, and didn't share any panels with the saloon. Handsome car though!

Seems a real waste to cannibalise and weigh in what looks (from this angle) to be a rust-free, damage-free Volvo estate. What a shame. :(

That's why I was asking about the MOT. I've a feeling you only have to get a safety inspection when a vehicle changes hands but I could be wrong.

The red Golf is a Connecticut car where I think the 'Inspection' is only on change of ownership. New York has them annually but they're still not as strict as a UK MOT.

Here's a couple of bits and pieces from December.

I'm guessing this car has been in and out of fashion once or twice over the years but it was as clean as it looked and clearly loved.

Monte Carlo SS! The thinking redneck's choice of wheels. If I had any hair left I'd be growing a mullet and chewing "Red Man" whenever I rolled in that.

Hello all, have a few spots to share from the last month or so.

Found a place with more than its fair share of Alfas round the back

and this was lurking in the woods

and back to town, only seen one of these 262s before, the wheels look a bit modern
