Tidy Talbot Express in Brixton.

Although there's still a fair bit of weapons-grade to spot in these parts, some of my regulars seem to have long gone.  Haven't spotted this 18 dizzler or Princess Anne for nearly two years now (low res pic was taken four years ago).

Another lunchtime tat haul.  These three have been around for a while:

 

Alfa 146.jpg

 

Merc W123.jpg

 

Not sure how long this Bertone lovely has left though, it's looking increasingly tatty these days and has a flat NS front.

Someone likes their beige Citroens.

S1 Landrover in daily use.  That's either a kids seat in the front or a wing backed chair in place of the driver's seat.  Warrants further investigation I think!

To finish a faar awaay, slightly pog'd orange indicator Mk3 Astra

There's all sorts of odds and sods in the yard I keep my bus in. This is mainly a caravan storage yard but if you pays yer money you can leave anything you like there. Though I don't think some of these are paying rent anymore, they've just been forgotten about. Here are just a few.

We'll start with this Triumph 2000. This has been under a tarpaulin and on its wheels until very recently so there is work going on here. Coincidentally my own Triumph is in a very similar position at the moment.

20170110_111555.jpg


I think this is a Fiat 600, it's bigger than a 500.

20170110_111452.jpg

Ford Zephyr/Zodiac/Executive mk4. Looks like an estate in this picture. It's not, it's a stretch limo. Though I think the description 'limo' might be stretching it a bit.

These are Daimlers but I don't know which models. I think they were only ever going to be for spares but I can't even see that they'd be any use for that anymore.

20170110_102624.jpg

The one nearest the camera is parked next to my bus and whilst the bus was fortunately away for some work the passenger door actually fell off! Not when someone tried to open it, just fell off all on its own, hence the strapping now running through the windows. You can see the A post has rusted right through. That's special.

And I've saved the best til last. This is a Hillman Imp INSIDE a caravan! It's a coupe too but I have no idea which variant. It has no engine, I've peered through the holes by the number plate and can see the floor. Not the floor of the caravan, the actual ground.

20170110_102815.jpg

20170110_102928.jpg

There's a Morris 1300 behind the caravan. This looks quite rusty but unlike the Daimlers may be of use for spares.

Excellent foraging, there.....Imp variant is a Singer Chamois Coupe, the Daimlers look like a Conquest and the bigger DB18 Consort.   Zodiac is a Dorchester limousine by Coleman-Milne.  FIAT is indeed a 600 model.

I want one of those! That's a Felicia Bohemia! That's a pre facelift with all the toys. Central locking, electric windows, sunroof, colour coded bumpers, the works. For a Felicia anyway.

Oh and alloy wheels and a little body coloured rear lip spoiler. And came in a range of bright colours. Would have looked like this new.

Who wouldn't want one of those? Howmanyleft says there's 13 left so well spotted.

This looked a lot worse than in the pic and the passenger side has simpler repairs, still no better than I would do.

And I can't remember if I ever actually seen one of these Suzukis before

So popped to ASDA this morning. I thought I'd found a space and was heading for it when I catch a glimpse of a familiar (to me at least) shade of blue. So a sudden change of direction which had the wife worried and I was parked next to this.

Of course once she realised what was going on there was one of those sighs followed by "you're going to take a photo aren't you?"

20170115_102200.jpg

Needless to say she walked off as soon I'd stopped the car, too embarrassed to be seen with me. Which was fine as it allowed me to get a picture of this as well.

20170115_105750.jpg

This came out a bit fuzzy for some reason. I've obviously no idea how phone cameras, or anything digital, works so to use a Pratchettism I can only imagine the little imp inside the phone was thinking 'what are you pointing me at? It can't possibly be that AX, that's not subject matter" and therefore refused to focus on anything.

Not visible in the picture but there's a nice bit of gaffer tape between rear bumper and wing. Proper Shite.

No photeeze, alas, because I was driving, but on the M11 tonight I saw a Reliant Kitten, probably the first one that I have ever seen in the wild.  Later I saw what was either a Sierra Cosworth or an XR4i or summat being trailered on the M25.
