A once-sturdy ancient monument, now lapsing into dereliction and crumbling away.

So have a slightly blurry shot of a Mk IV Escort instead.

This Nexia I was told about by a fantastic friend, a Streetview find. I went on a little 20 mile jaunt to Hounslow expressly to find it, and as it turns out, Hounslow is STUPIDLY rich in shite cars.

 

I left a note on the rear windshield and later that evening I received a call from the lovely owner, and we had a nice little chat about it.

 

Bonus 106 that's not been on the road since at least 2005.

Two from my holiday weekend at Scarborough.

One slightly fuzzy Mk IV Escort...

IMG_20180811_132403~2.jpg

Sorry for the camera shake, trying to wrangle an excited husky and take photos at the same time is hard.

From a bit later, the sole interesting vehicle to drive into the caravan park the whole weekend.

IMG_20180813_235242.jpg

Never been in an Express, would be curious to have a shot driving one.

Coachwork isn't by a maker I can identify by sight, lacks the flair of the body on my Merc I think, but nevertheless looks in good nick for the age.

Sorry, couldn't get a shot from the front due to the proximity of the kids play area, and I wasn't about to go and start snapping photos in that direction.

Penge - S. London. This A4O Somerset had a new modern interior- so maybe some engine mods too. Just parked casually at the roadside. As cars have got bigger and taller this is now about the size of a Nissan Micra. The photo is a bit flattering - its hand-painted. Nice old thing.
