Why the random number plate blanking? :?:

Not sure really! I think I was just having a go to try and do it in a different way (I tend to do certain friends cars etc.) and just picked a random spot photo to play with.

Just a few from the last couple of weeks.

Not normally considered shite but this one is so anti-scene. Seen it drive around locally over the last few months but not seen it stationary. Looks like one owner painter/decorator/plumbers van.

Posted Image

We normally get annoyed when people park on the very short piece of kerb between us and next door as it is unavoidable in anything but a smart to partially block one of the driveways. But it was tricky to feel peeved at this piece of shite!

Katie took our daughter to a birthday party Sunday before last. Took the camera with. Didn't take any photos of kids enjoying themselves but snapped this combo in traffic on the way home!

I just can't believe that FSO... would anyone actually have 'designed' that on paper or was it just a question of a rearended FSO, a pickup arse, some lengths of steel bar and a welder?

A few new ones from the capital's 'burbs.

Posted Image

This Marina (1.3) has popped up close to where there was a Landcrab last year. Might be a serial tat driver - will make sure I've got a AS card in my pocjet next time I go past.

Posted Image

This interior means its not likely an old giffer's

Posted Image

This isn't really shite in this condition. The garages have always had something Citroen parked outside but its all been 90's stuff since a pair of CXs went a while ago.

Posted Image

Nice pairing

Posted Image

Posted Image

Quite new shite for me but a Crown wagon! With Hirst look lacey covers and everything!

Posted Image

House & car shite. This was a great find. I turned up this road to have a look as I had a feeling a street made up of 60's/70's town houses might throw something up. Nothing until I get right to the end and bam! There she is!

Slow corrugated shite.

I'm no expert, but I reckon the GS's beefier front wings and side repeaters (which aren't a requirement in Continental Yoorup - or at least weren't until recently) would mean it's a Birotor all right. What did it sound like?

Yeah those wings are the instant identifier for a Birotor I reckon too. But, did I read somewhere that Citroen bought them all back and destroyed them for some reason, or was I dreaming :?:

I realise I never answered this Keef. Don't think it was ever a fire station. Down the ally there is a paint/bodyshop and a wheel re-furb guy who I think has been trading from this area since the early seventies. At the other end of the alley which is basically a "mews" type road behind the shops on the main road there is another such building that until a couple of years ago had an ancient four post lift outside.

The side of the road where I was standing to take the photo also has a similar service road that housed until about 5 years ago another garage type outfit that was demolished to make way for posh new accountants offices. There was even a pre-war petrol pump. I never took photos :(

Basically I think that when this area was built in the 20's these buildings served the local motoring needs of the rapidly expanding population that was moving in.

Ah, here's "The Village Garage" complete with twenties style murals behind the old pumps.

Posted Image

Except that this is "Bloomsbury Village" just of Tottenham Court Road in central London.

Posted Image

I read in last weeks Time Out that this was being closed and demolished by the beginning of June so made a point to find it (never knew it existed!) and photograph it for posterity. The article said it was attendant service too but that the Congestion Charge had cut their income hugely and the plot was being sold for development :(

We were away camping for the weekend and this lovely was hiding in the bushes outside a shite house opposite the site.

Posted Image

Its an A90 "big" six pot pre-Farina and actually seems quite sound.

Posted Image

It was blocking the route to the garage, I wonder what's in there!

It was a smallish village where my grandparents lived while I was younger and the old butcher shop had gone in the last 15 years but it seemed quite lively still and had one active shop, a garage/car sales and this proper old style engineers shop with wrapped up lathe and mill standing guard. Nice to see such things still exist.

Posted Image

And a shitey shite spot on the way home.

Can't believe that lovely old filling station is being demolished, just seems so wrong :x About 2 months ago I was working in the Bristol area and during a spare half hour one day I went along to the industrial museum site on the old dockside to find out when it opens as both my sons expressed an interest in paying a visit when on a previous visit to the City, only to find museum had gone and the the wonderful old warehouse building that housed it was being redeveloped, more than likely into shit souless glass fronted offices and silly money apartments :evil:
