I have been meaning to get a photo of this delightfully scruffy Corvette for ages. Whoever owns it seems to drive it to work most days so it is a pretty cool daily driver.


I'm not sure if I really want to know the answer, but is that your shadow in the photograph? If so, please don't take it personally, are you the grim reaper?

Such a rare car, even it its day. I don't think I ever saw one on the road - only ever parked at a dealers. They were nice cars but Audi seriously overpriced them, hence the poor sales. Good to see one on the road still.

 

Edited to add: I was actually thinking of its successor, but I'm sure this still holds true for the original one. There did seem to be a few more of this shape sold, with the American style front end, but they were still rare cars.

The history on the Audi 200 turdo made for some hefty work a few years back , does it all need doing again ...
This photo was probably it's good side , it has at least 2 long term flat tyres and weeds 2 feet tall growing up the side. I've known of this car for a few years and it never seems to of moved but must of as still currently Mot'd ....but not for long

Starlet1.jpg

Saab 900i.jpg

These three were parked at a customer's today.

The convertible is owned by one of the owners.

The Starlet and the 900i saloon are both owned by a mechanic who rents a flat there.

I did some work on the 900i where I used to work(for the previous owner)

It's a really nice car that's now in daily use.

A handful from the last few days. I can remember when those [email protected]@n5 were everywhere, usually in that colour too.
I did try very hard to get a picture this evening of an LDV Maxus towing what I think was a GT6 on a trailer, however he flew past me in the middle lane of the M1 going uphill at 75 ish, then, having crested the hill, proceeded to do at least 80 down the other side, either not his vehicles or a very confident tower.

That Land Rover brings back some memories, from 1976 until 81 RGC 576 was our family car. The same hardtop and split tailgate arrangement as this one, even had the holes above the rear windows where this one has extra indicators. They were part of a batch stockpiled, along with Green Goddeses by the Civil Defence Corp, then sold off in the early 70's.image.jpeg

The Volvos are swarming again.

I've said it before but I reckon they're still building these somewhere. Twentyish years old and yet they're still everywhere.

Even the wheels are tartan. We can only imagine the conversation that took place when someone decided this was a good idea.

I like that Zephyr. Looks like individual front seats but no deluxe grille? I think that combination was only possible on early Mark 4s.

I think the individual front seats were an option from the start.   Don't see many of these early ones now they only came out midway through the D suffix

They were, but after a few months the Deluxe was introduced, with grille and individual seats as standard. The Base model was then only available with a bench front seat.

This fella also has a Puma on the drive and all 4 never move of course. There's a Focus on the street that seems to be a daily driver. Sadly the house is falling down too.

Dizzler Vel Shatis.  He booted it after I took this so I was left drowned in clag.

For a quick draw spot this turned out quite well.  The background is a happy coincidence!

I've seen that 505 a few times over the years, usually parked near Smith Square or near Westminster School behind the Abbey. Probably belongs to a multi-millionaire that uses it to cart his priceless Purdeys to Gloucestershire at weekends.
