No longer on DVLA so officially a late Escort.

I reckon these are weapons grade, even the name is shite, I mean, what social circle do you have to be in to want to tell your mates you drive a 'Cam-Pro1.6 Gen2', the name is worse than the car.

If you have a spare hour or two, I wholeheartedly recommend a perusal of this guy's flickr photostream. He gets around a bit and spends a fair amount of time in unlikely countries such as the Lebanon. That's right, the LEBANON.

 

The old 'shite over there is plentiful and quite spectacular.

I thought a gentoo was a type of penguin.

 

Turns out the car looks a bit like a series 1 Renault Megane.

Ha ha, I never thought of that. I assumed that some marketing bod thought it might put people in mind of Evo 2, as in Mitsubishi.
I don't think it's too bad a looking car, but there's something I can't put my finger on that shouts out 'I don't care what I drive'.

Nearly creamed my load when this wonderful Monty nipped in ahead of me at a junction yesterday.

It was in really good condition. Pinstripe was missing from the offside rear quarter panel, but otherwise it seemed in very good condition.

I followed it as long as I could. Giffer pilot naturally. 8863d5808939f577b3f9f1949239896d.jpg9e01638a387b2a971ba3c69748ede0b2.jpg

The Yaris is shown as being registered at the end of March 1999 so must be one of the oldest examples left.
