I have recently been to the Costa Del Talbot Solara and was fucking gutted not to see a single Seat Malaga or Renault 7. However i did see the following:

Pug 505 in Riviera del sol

 

IMAG0314_zps243f34b7.jpg

 

Renault 21 in La Cala

 

IMAG0313_zps8036c5ad.jpg

 

Stranded UK Spec Merc in the car park in the apartments we were in.

 

IMAG0312_zps36db6400.jpg

 

UK spec 626 also in the apartments.

 

IMAG0309_zps1e4308b7.jpg

 

Fiat 600. I honestly cannot remember ever seeing one of these in the flesh before. I assume it was in daily use too as was parked differently the next time I was at the bar.

 

IMAG0308_zps22b91675.jpg

 

Rover 800. I honestly have to say, I saw more Rovers over there than I do here. Ex pat community without the class system of having to upgrade your car every 3 years I suppose?

 

IMAG0307_zps5ddeafb7.jpg

 

This is the only photo I got of Mrs H. Imp on holiday. Its unfortunate that this FX4 drove past as I was taking it.

 

IMAG0306_zps96df1010.jpg

IMAG0305_zpsabd660cf.jpg

 

Seat 131 with bonus Land Rover in Mijas. I had never seen one of these before. Got very excited. 

 

IMAG0304_zps37fdf4aa.jpg

 

Danny DeVito spec Renault 4, also in Mijas. 

 

IMAG0293_zps922a2194.jpg

IMAG0292_zpsec8fa087.jpg

 

Renault 19 & Pug 205 in the 'Littlehampton of Spain' Fuengirola

 

IMAG0290_zps4439d945.jpg

 

Comedy Vectra in Riviera del Sol.

 

And as proof thats you can take 4x4 owner out of the UK but you cant stop them parking like a cunt I give you this:

Superb hol-spots there Mr_Imp, good effort.

 

Yesterday I saw an oh-so-rusty white Astra mk3 saloon parked up by the bridge, opposite the pub in Malham. It would have made an ace picture, but I was too ashamed to stop and pap it, I'd have had to stand amongst all the tourists drinking ale on the cobbles.  :oops:

That's absoutley wonderful, I don't know why but I'm loving the colour scheme.  Big want!

 

Whoever the owners are, they're brave people for taking that Peugeot camper van all this way.  It doesn't look the most refined or comfortable mode of transport in the world.

This weapons grade shite incredibly was parked outside my work in edinburgh last night. Could've got a great pic of it. Typically my phone was flat. Gutted. Imagine my surprise when out with the mrs later to come across it again, this time with a charged phone, but as I was mobile only a particularly shit shot was possible.

First one I've ever seem in the metal. Want.

 

Hey, this is up for sale at a very reasonable £29,500.

Just back from a wonderful week spent at a ranch in the middle of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, USA.  Even out there, 9 miles from the nearest tarmac road, there's chod to spot.

 

IMG_0135_zps43b5bdda.jpg

 

This was wonderful, a very, very battered old Ford truck, I would guess from the 1950s or 60s.  It looked like it hadn't turned a wheel in years.

 

Wrong.  A loud commotion was heard mid-morning one day and turned out to be this truck, spluttering and stalling on (at best) 4 out of 8 cylinders, trying to drag its load of horse manure out of the pit it's kept in for easy loading.  Turns out it's actually used for carting said manure up to another part of the ranch, although it's definitely on its last legs, it appears to have a top speed of about 10mph and someone mentioned that it has virtually no clutch left (confirmed by a lot of gear grinding following by seeing it run out of momentum on a slight hill while the driver was trying to change from 2nd to 1st).

 

IMG_0137_zpsc5b60b60.jpg

 

These are all long past roadworthy but all used on and off around the ranch as far as I could tell.  The red Ford truck furthest from the camera was jump-started and put to work carrying hedge cuttings later in the week.

 

IMG_0101_zps013dfc18.jpg

 

Futureyankshite Chevy Captiva rental car - not too bad as these things go, nice comfy cream leather seats, the 4wd and ground clearance was very useful as the dirt road up to the ranch got partially washed out later in the week.  Those chrome wheels are patently hideous though.  Also the dreadful colour screen on the dash which displayed a garish logo even when the radio was turned off, was not appreciated.

but this Montego on the other hand does seem to be worth the money, it's mint again and only has 51000 miles on the clock, I have spoke to him about taking a photo of this and mine together which he's happy with but he wasn't in today..
