Day one of a holiday in northern France and the car spotting has commenced. In the space of the two hour drive from Dieppe to our gite at least 10 AXs spotted, one towing a trailer. More interesting spots include a car I never knew existed, Citroen Saxo “Bic” special edition. Things were topped off by spotting a silver Renault 18 estate a few miles form Camembert. Exciting stuff.

This mega-giffer-owned Felicia is slowly rotting away gracefully*.

 

Note the Krooklok.

 

I left my Streetwise unintentionally unlocked in the same car park this afternoon. If 'they' didn't have that away on its toes, I doubt they'd be too interested in a rusty Felicia

I think there might be one that's been sitting under a tarpaulin for years. It's on one of the routes we use when hacking to the pub.....

But i just scurried off haha i could of eaten my left foot i was famished yo.

 

P1110829.JPG

 

COMMER CHAMELEONNNNN..

 

Another bloke that needs to be on here.. Prior to this he had a big yank coupe under a tarp it just sat for about 5 years never moved, Had no idea what it was.. not for the life of me.. I had inkling towards a big plymouth? Felt like door knocking just to ask FFS!

 

Anyway that just went overnight then this appeared.. I thought it was a spacevan at first TBF

Saw this in Lidl Cirencester on Tuesday; 95 and 2 stroke, very rare and unheard of in UK. I loitered about for a while hoping for a chat as I own a '72 Saab 96 but the owner didn't appear so I went into Lidl and went about trying to guess which customer was the driver of a mint Saab 95 on Swedish plates :)
When I came out the 95 had gone but I saw him circling a roundabout appearing lost and shortly afterwards he blasted past me and disappeared into Cirencester town.

I wouldn't normally go with a 'no pic' spot, but earlier on today in Sheffield I saw a mint '79 'T' plate Honda CBX1000, that's the straight six model, for anybody that didn't know.

Never seen one in the wild. Ever.

It looked prefectly shonky from where I was sat.
