Its been quite a while since I updated this thread! I guess I'm busy exercising the camera at shows rather than out on the streets. I have been on a couple of tat hunting missions recently though so here's those results and a few more.

Looked out the window one day to find this parked outside.

These next few are from a walk to a different than normal park with my dauighter. One day she'll learn how to ask me why we keep stopping to take photos of odd cars :wink:

And then last week I had to wonder over to my brother in laws and went armed to snap a few cars I knew were lurking and some I didn't

Clubman on Starmags and unfortunately wearing clear rear lights too. But it was hiding under some nice concrete near Brent Cross shopping centre

The following are from other round and about trips. Humber had better have paid his congestion charge, driving around Soho looking for parking...

I think we got spotted photographing this French registered beauty on the M25!

and to finish off some lovely J-van action.

Nice spots Seth, that 900 looks buffed within an inch of it's life!Lovely to see a Mk1 Polo under it's own power there too. E30 3-series Beemers can be found as early as Y-reg, if you're lucky :lol:

Lovely!! Sounds like you had a good time spotting, certainly got some results.

Seems to be a lot of those "vanning-zoku" vans coming from Japan this year, that one is a fairly mild example. Still a bit tacky!

Unless there's more than one of these about (same colour/spec etc) then it has also been to Bromley

He, he. I got a single photo today that beats that combo! I'll get it on-line later but a clue is one piece of French executive tat and a bit of German obscurity :D

Cheers.I think it being a hard top and the photo cutting off the rear made me doubt, although the long front end kind of gives the game away.

Not Wealdstone but under the arches of our nearest "Green" tube station :wink: There's often a single 500 or something there but I think this is the most old cars I've seen in one go.

Wow the 604's are a-coming out of the woodwork now!I've only seen Bitter's in two places before, Bromley & Fieldgate - a local classic car show at Sidlesham. They're SC's I believe, which was the 80's version of the CD of the 70's. Got lovely 3.9's!

That Mini looks like it had one careful owner up until about 1995, then driven just about into the ground since then. Brilliant

Time for an update then!

I saw this some time ago in the car park at the microcar rally we went to. An unfamiliar one to me and left hand drive.

Posted Image

This pair I think I've posted before are close to where my brother lives.

Posted Image

The these two in the same little car park. Note undercover photography styleee so as not to get caught out!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Perhaps just had his American nails done?

Posted Image

Traveller shite

Posted Image

I snapped the back of this and then when I saw the driver had to get a full frontal too!

Posted Image

And finally perhaps top spot for the time being though it might not count as a true spot as I saw it emerging from the Ace Cafe as I drove past on my way home on Sunday

Blimey....Probably due to the fact that I don't get to spend as much time on my bum in front of this laptop as I'd like due to work (off at the moment....LAHVLY! :D ), I've missed some of Your recent updates :(

I have to say that this is spotting of the highest calibre: Peugeot 604, Bitter SC, Renault 18, and now a Wartburg? If I were wearing my hat, I'd take it off to You sir! :D

Good to see an update from you Seth. First one is the saloon version of Mazda 323, sold with three different looks (four if you count previous model estate still sold alongside it). That one looks US-spec, I imagine here via USAF personnel and probably Alconbury or Mildenhall/Lakenheath judging by the Cambs EG registration.

The home of one previous owner Japanese cars:

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!
