Humber Hawk/ Super Snipe/ Imperial circa 1966/67.
My money is on the Super Snipe.
Twin headlamp 3 litre six pot.
I had an Imperial some years ago. Glass partition etc.
Thrupp and Maberley stretch between the doors.
Nice pimpmobile....VERY strong.
Takes time to find the fuel filler on these motors.
Behind the reflector!

The n/s/f door still carries an IMPERIAL badge. It's in such a state that the A-pillars have rusted completely away from the bulkhead... Spare parts only I'm afraid!

Glad to see the Japanese stuff was of interest, here's something else that was found on my travels:

Couldn't say exactly what it is; would the "GT R" badge on the grille be a red herring?

Another Domino - complete with keys in the boot! - aaand a superb Transit mkII lwb (the ropey mkI Tranny on the first page of this thread photographed at Xmas is still there by the way)

I'd echo that comment of Michiels, what a great place for shite hunting.For some unfathomable reason I am starting to really like late Austin Metros in those funky primary colours. Good to see some original 80's Minis as well.Why do cars last longer there? - you commented that there's no MOT but most of your spots looked in good condition anyway.Are new cars comparatively expensive? or is there a high proportion of retirees perhaps, happy to trundle around in the bright yellow Metro they bought 20 years ago? I suppose low annual mileages must have something to do with it!P.S big black yank is a circa 1950 Buick.

The low mileages/high coffin-dodger count theories explanations go some way towards explaining the amount of older tin knocking about. Other factors are the restricted speeds (40mph max) and the lack of salt on roads in winter, though the sea air goes some way towards offsetting that.

New stuff's always been a tad less expensive than in the UK mainly due to VAT not being charged, but nowadays there's a one-off "Vehicle Registration Duty" payable on importation and levied according to engine size. I believe there may be an exemption for vehicles over 20 years old though.

- there's little in the way of TRUE shite (late 1970s/early 1980s Renners and Jap tat) left but there's plenty more stuff to be bagged the next time I'm over, I only really stuck to the south coast on this visit.

My last day allowed for little more than the walk to the airport, but a few more motors of interest follow:

Posted Image
The Daihatsu dealer on Jersey did well. Even managed to flog a few Sportraks in this colour

Posted Image
LOADS of Charades this shape, but then again they must have built them until well into the 1990s so that's hardly surprising. This one a little more unusual however in that it's an unmolested GTti

Posted Image
Tatty but original Sierra. Cars of this size few and far between; plenty of smaller stuff and a fair number of big BMs/Mercs/4x4s etc but traditional repmobiles never popular here.

Posted Image
At last! a mk1 Fiesta, in very nice condition too.

EDIT: link to the Charade pic updated, that's what you get for trying to do everything "blind" on dial-up! Thanks Mr RegieRomeo, what on earth were you doing up at that time in the morning???

No trouble, happy to point out others' mistakes as usual!
Err...well....sleep seems such a waste of time! 2 or 3 nights last week I didn't get to bed till 5am. Won't be long before I can no longer get away with that physically! By then not even Rocket Fuel coffee will rescue me! :shock:

I think people didn't pick up on these because you simply hit us with more pictures of shite then we could take in in such a short space of time!

I'm about to hit you all with a deluge of pictures taken in Belgium a week or so ago - nothing really spectacular, there didn't seem to be anything older than late 80s in everyday use. Feel free to point out my mistakes, I have to be able to take it if I'm gonna dish it out! :P

Any ideas...?!

That old blue thing's a post-war Hurg innit?

It is a HRG, effectively a rival to the contemporary MG during the 1920s, although this example built I believe in 1950. Had no idea so few were built - probably got the highest survival rate of any 20th century car model (Except for the MGB, natch, of which 500,000 were built and 600,000 survive)

The stack of ice cream van bodies? (I've already typed this tale once then lost it after pressing the wrong key) Essentially - sequence of events is:

Authorities tipped off that fleet of prehistoric CFs is in cataclysmic condition
Vehicles inspected and condemned amid allegations of VIN fraud
(same number plates spotted on two different vans working simultaneously at opposite ends of island, hehe)
Bedford bits ripped out prior to owner seeking more "modern" chassis to transplant the remainder onto (in this case mk3 Transhits)You can still buy a 99 Flake from an elderly CF though! Just as you can in many parts of Britain I s'pose. I'll aim to obtain photographic evidence this weekend, if the weather holds :)

Okay, so I went out to three parties Saturday night and got HAMMERED. Didn't have much luck with the girl hosting the last one so without a convenient bed to crash into, I decided to stay up and work off the booze by riding around to see what shite was parked up. Starting about 4.40am (!) when it was getting nicely light, nobody around at that time so uninhibitied tat-spotting. Gave up around 9am - saw so much that I'm having to split it into two sections (the next one to come later this week).

Going to have to do this in some sort of order, Photobucket's just been hit with 89 files this time round

Like the Sumos they are tall but narrow therefore ideal for the island's many narrow lanes

This probably my spot of the YEAR so far. Big old Dat estate.

Stickers on side window betray previous use as a taxi. I believe it saw occasional use in public service till very recently :shock: (or I may be confusing it with a white Toyota Crown estate of similar vintage if there were the two of them at one stage) :shock: it appears to be still in use and yes that is red insulation tape over most of the rear clusters :D

With a bonus spot later on, top top colour

Dusty but insured Escort, this is either a genuine RS turbo minus the stripes or a very very good replica.

2nd one down is a dealer edition of which there were millions on the island by 1989. 3rd one sadly a t-bone victim in the breakers yard. 4th from bottom the twin of the one spotted earlier in the week. Grey-blue modified one is apparently a 2 litre Zetec from Mundaneo

Very absorbing stuff. The Festiva thing is a left hooker so god only knows which country that came from, I had always thought they ended up in Europe as Mazdas and nothing else. The Sapparo has an interesting grill too, I cannot recall whether I seen cars in the UK with those.

The Datsun 280C Cedric is a find and a half. Odd thing about that is lack of rear wipers. Care to figure this one out Nigel?



I saw that Dodge van at Stoneleigh classic and sports car show a few years ago.....

Difficult to know where to look!The Cedric estate is a 260C (330), my UK brochure shows they didn't get rear wipers, or any form of adornment on the massive chrome bumpers. Saloons and the later 280C estate (also 330, different grille) variously got overriders and/or bits of rubber on the corners.

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

Top detective skills on that fiat rallycar, it was indeed j51131, if you look in the background you will see a silver car that also appears behind the dodge van. :)

Jersey used to have some "Anglo American" auctions late 80s-early 90s, which accounts for some of the more bizarre stuff on the roads, used to be a lot of cast-off vehicles used for type approval purposes apparently. Something to do with the Jersey SVA test being easier to pass than the UK equivalent.

Don't remember any CF2 ice cream vans on Jersey, they were all very early mark 1 examples far as I can tell!

Here's another big batch from last week - less "shite" in many ways but still shitey...

Posted Image
made reference before to the Portuguese community's idea of "styling"... this sad 190D emphasises the point

Escort mk4 corner - still bloody loads everywhere I look. Pair of Ghias, first one in that colour, second an automatic next to the uniquely Jersey parking sign, then two special edition cabrios which are nice because if they were UK cars they'd no doubt have been modified to pieces by now.

One of many Dub things on the island - this one with four exhaust pipes suggesting it's no longer fitted with whatever piss poor engine it would have had when new
