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.

Wonderful house - check those windows and decor!    Spoiled by that horrible wheeled monstrosity in the front garden.

The garage in my small village has a small collection of festering chod outside. It was ever thus; I think they’re customer’s cars that have been given up on.

Anyway, I must be getting older and more masochistic, because there was a whole cavalcade of shit there this afternoon. The 306 is of particular interest because purple and in VGC.

It seemed to be full of car parts so might now be owned by the garage. e88033ab30d8fc7035e9cbe8ceffcdb5.jpg

Here’s a few I’ve seen over the past few months. 116EF2FC-FEA2-4DA0-AED7-F0841BC55B5F.png
This was parked outside a garage a few months ago. Haven’t seen it since so it’s probably been scrapped now.

These are really rare. You don’t really notice because they’re so anonymous looking but these are the only two I’ve ever seen. Nothing compared to this though49031B74-76FB-4252-8AA6-559C6BB655E0.png
I’ve never seen another of these. Never even seen one for sale. 4A49C8A9-6479-478D-9E01-23CC42E30297.png B14AE9F2-07BF-4360-A611-FE26F6533B8E.png 9E9BEBAD-B67A-4804-94BE-00A4635255A5.png 411E0187-8D20-4A44-8871-D6088B3F69B9.png

Considering every streetview image taken in Germany now is over 10 years old, you can find tons of chod in Berlin. Cool stuff at every corner really.
