Hurrah, more spots! Being in the city I think you should find plenty to keep this going.The Mazda is great, I love the early ones with stainless wheel covers.

And me, I wish I could see the photos

That Carina looks to be in remarkably good condition, good find Seth! I'm particularly fond of the back lights on them.

Thought it was another Charmant on first glance! :oops:

Are they perhaps related? I'm sure someone told me the Corolla GT RWD coupe engine was also found in the Charmant

The Charmant is a KE70 Corolla 4 door Saloon with the same engines, gearboxes etc.The Corolla GT engine doesn't come stock, but it is a popular swap because using a mixture of Toyota parts you can fit them fairly easily. Stock engines for the Charmant are an unremarkable but fairly modern 1.6 and a pretty ancient 1.3 like I've got.

I've not really had much success spotting of late but had a good day on Friday as I a was well prepared for it. I went to the Model Engineering Exhibition at Alexandra Palace and was expecting to find the car park full of typical old duffer mobiles but only came across two :( Anyway, a specific spotting detour on the way home through an area I don't know well threw up some lovelies :D

Oh, and appologies if all the earlier photos are no longer visible but I've still only got a limited amount of on-line storgae space so have to clear out every so often.

Got these two on the way there while stuck in traffic

Posted Image

Posted Image

Opposite where I parked:

Posted Image

In the car park - Cavalier looked very good.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Then on my "Seth route" home....

Datsun camper?

Posted Image

Not officially shite but opposite the camper

Posted Image

and further up the same road

Posted Image

I went round a block 'cos I thought I'd spotted an ADO16 but it wasn;t there. But this was!

Posted Image

It was out the front of some garage premises that looked like it might have contained more proper tat so I'll have to go back to investigate.

Further up the same road

Posted Image

And then opposite the end of the road:

Posted Image

What is it about certain streets that just seem to attract tat hoarders?

I do like that early Manta B, think that one is a Berlinetta which would be my top choice. I will have one some day........Queried Datsun camper looks like a 620 (1500), what some people call 'bulletsides' due to the swage line below the windows. Wonder if it's still got the J15 engine (essentially a BMC B-series IIRC) or whether it's a US import with bigger L20 lump. It looks like it's got double rear wheels.

And a couple of modern Toyotas

I got off the bus eaerly on the way home from town this afternoon as there was a spot I knew I had to capture before they disappeared. Found a lot more on my walk home!

This "garage" hasn't been a petrol station in my living memory but was the lighting shop up until a couple of years ago. The lighting people redeveloped a different plot 50 yards away (and in so doing destroyed an old garage that had once been home to the Speedwell tuning firm :cry: ) and shut this one up. There's a huge plot of land behind it whiuch must be worth a mint so it probably won't be long before it turns into more luxury flats...

Posted Image

Anyway, the reason for my visit was hiding just round the side.

Posted Image

So that job done I needed to get a shot of this 2CV just down the road, complete with off road exhaust

Posted Image

Opposite was a non-shite Jensen

Posted Image

and down another driveway,

Posted Image

I peered down the next residential road and caught sight of this so went to investigate.

Posted Image

Why do some roads seem paritcularly shite full? Proper CTP. I really dont know what this is :?

I know the guy who owns the Escort and Midget. I presume the Saab is his mum's? How d'ya fancy the wagon Pog?

Posted Image

Getting closer to home and this Dolly was an unexpected find. Obviously undergoing a running resto.

Posted Image

Cherry,

Posted Image

being kept company buy a 5. There used to be one or two rusting Rootes hulks parked here. I'd love to know what's in the garages!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

I don't usually photograph 205's as they seem quite common still but this is an earlyish one and is a particularly horrible colour. A special edition of some sort.

Posted Image

And to finish with, a non-shite spot which sounded lovely and was nice to see out and about in the winter.

I'm hoping the Jag driver was being decent (as old car drivers are, of course) and letting the Astra out, not just about to T-bone it?Also, is it me noticing them now I have one or are there a lot of Hondas cropping up?Seth, for sad reasons I would like to know the Cherry registration please - I can make some of it out (EBM?) but would like to be 100% on it. The chrome headlamp surrouns are odd - US cars had them, but I wonder if there was some way of getting the paint off a black surround to reveal that? Can't recall if they were plastic or not, been 18 years since I sold mine :shock:Edit: In the SL household those Hymer things are called Hymen Mobile.....

OK, that last one isn't shite, especially as its an Imperial, but I was so chuffed to finally photograph it. I've seen it regularly since I've lived in this area and know where it lives too. Its driven by a little old lady who must be well into her 80's and probably only does the mile or so to the shops and back every week or so. She usually parks it where she likes (blue badge). Is got about 85k on the clock and is still on crossplys. It is just superbly wonderful! :D

Is this a wizardry 'KITT from Knight Rider' style jag that drives itself? Think that would count as a modification your insurance company would want to know about!

A very sorry double six on the same road as the flower power Volvo

Posted Image

This house is opposite IKEA on teh North Circ close to the timewarp garage. There are two Minors (inc that early small screen one just visible) and they used to be kept company by a tatty ZA/ZB MG Magentte. That disappeared a while ago but I noticed a Wolseley 16/60 had arrived yesterday!

Posted Image

Posted Image

This lives just down the road from me and is owned by a young guy I know. Unfortunately about a week after I took this he got cut up and the front end has been wrecked :cry:

Espace close to Goodge St. tube station.

Posted Image

And another Espace at the Cambridge/Oxford OC meeting I went to yesterday. I don't think it blonged to a club person though.

Posted Image

However I'm pretty sure this did! They are all Banger Racers after all! There were about 8 Farinas in attendance too including 3 six cylinder cars.

Good work Seth, some cracking captures there. Particularly like the 'Hart To Hart' spec SL and the Silvia.I came across a cracking couple of spots last night on my trudge from Carshalton Beeches station to the Cav seller's house...a dust-and-bird-poo covered untaxed Mazda RX-7 Turbo convertible (why was it unused???) and a fantastic '85 Merc 280SE outside a similarly-tatty Edwardian semi! Not sure if anyone actually lived there, it was as if both car and house had been left to rot for the last 20 years...

2003 Renault Espace IV 2.0 petrol - living up to its reputation...

Nice Laurel, early SGL one like mine. Eight-spoke chrome wheels aren't the greatest thing, but still 76 times better than the terrible alloys Nissan fitted.The Carina II looks perfect sitting on that crazy paving (something we don't see much of out here in the sticks).I'd love to spend a day cycling round the 'burbs of North London. Even on our evening visit to you Seth there was obviously so much still knocking about.
