I was wondering that, she’s got that look like someone just coming out of a tent. Maybe she sleeps in it there? Airline handy for drying her hair at least and she’s next to the water. Great to see it on the pov-spec steels, not even dartboards – does that make it an L? Maybe even a 1.3 if we’re really lucky?Excellent selection Seth. The fintail M-B looks perfect sat there with no moderns to spoilt the view, even if a bit clichéd.

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!!

And a couple of modern Toyotas

Lack of dartboards will mean an L, or if we're really lucky, a "base", which they might have still been doing on an X-plate. Either 1.3 or 1.6. I'll put my anorak on and say it's an L due to the passenger door mirror :lol: Is that Cordoba Beige too, unless I am very much mistaken?

I remember my grandad getting a brand new Capri 1.6 L or LS, minty metallic green on an X-plate I think, forgot all about it until just now.

Craig, That was as close as I got but it was something more like a Vauxhall.

Michiel, that 500 was stunning. I reckon fresh out of resto or certainly barely used since. Roof was interesting as I hadn't seen one like that either. Looked more like plastic than glass though. Can't really see it any better in this shot.

I've seen that 500 again but was unable to get a photo. If it turns up gain I'll do my best to get an aerial shot!

Here's a swift update. First some building shite. I can't imagine planners these days sticking flats on top of a petrol station....

Posted Image

Posted Image

and an old Kwikfit. Worrying that the garage next door has been closed a couple of years now. Would be a shame ot loose this lovely old building and have more luxury flats. Maybe the dodgy economy will delay that possibility.

On to some cars. CPT#1

This is newer than I normally photograph but it was sooo clean and straight and sooo red. So I thought Spotted Laurel would like it at least :wink:

I'll go back and get better shots of that one

Perfect. But for that wheelie bin. And the car looks to have been plate-raped too, though I'll let that one pass. :)

I'm in agreement about the Austin pic, wonderful!The red Sunny certainly gets my vote as a sensible daily, though that one being a facelift makes it look even duller than the early version.I'm struggling with the night-time shot, my immediate thought is maybe the earlier model of Sunny (B11)?

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13

I've forgotten what the night one was but it could have been one of those Sunnys (Sunnies?).I'll go back and move the wheelie bin next time I pass the A30. :wink: Nothing wrong with the BMW as such other than the half arsed Alpina stripes.

Some of the continental dealers sell those double window perspex sunroof thingies - they were never standard issue or accessories. I think they look hideous (ducks head back below parapet) and spoil what is otherwise a gorgeous motor.

Even has a row of lockups next to it, sounds like ideal accomodation for a car owner, plus you wouldn't even need a fridge because you could just pop downstairs to the garage and get a dodgy shrinkwrapped pie or something.

Really need to start a buildingshite thread on here, there's a few oddities near my work I need to get a few shots of.
