That Rolls Royce hearse is shocking. Obviously it cost a fortune, but really, the coachbuilders could not have made much less effort could they?
Some of those unfinished eBay pickup conversions are more coherently styled and I'd rather my box did it's last few miles in one of those than in this ghastly device.

I almost started a new thread for this one it's so shite, but my "taking a photo while driving on foreign roads" skills appear to be limited.

It's a Tabbert "pikey van" body plonked on the back of an old Mercedes 508D, lumbering majestically on the A5 in Germany.

Dropped Mrs the Princess at her parents while playing with Peugeots. Spotted these in their street while walking the dog.

All Corsas are shit? I disagree.

I always quite liked the look of FTOs and almost bought one a few years back. Had a few Celicas and mk1 MX5s instead. FTOs are a bit like classic Imprezas - they now seem to have all but disappeared.

It was absolutely mint! The steel rims were as new. Had a Jan '01 tax disc in the windscreen and honestly looked as if that was the last time it was used. Lovely

I could hear something behind me with a blowing exhaust running like a bag of shit, so I whipped the phone out and caught this on the move.

I've been meaning to get a pic of this for a while. Only recently has it been spruced up. It used to look pleasantly shabby.

Looks quite high spec. Wood rim steering wheel (genuine option) and auto. Defo not derv or 1.8t, they all have boot badges so I'd like to think it's a V6.
