Just right near my parents' house - I recognise the 2500S but the other car is a bit old for me - someone enlighten please?

Top spot Mk2 - a Mk2 as well. :-)

May we use this one on http://www.a40farina...rg/a40home.html please?

I think that is a GT6 with the roof chopped. Why not just buy a spitfire? The bonnet bulge is hiding a 2.0 straight 6 lump from the 2000. Particulary liking the Jag - reminds me of home...

Just what were Skoda thinking when they came up with these

Does this bear a resemblance to the Proton Jumbuck? These all hark back to the Talbot 100 "Wind" pickup which was Simca 1100 based & therefore very cool & trendy!

http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r254/...
Maybe not!!!! Hope this doesn't cost any more than 75p a day to rent

I take it holiday rental cars are distinguished by the red H on their plates?

Let's play Top Trumps Jerseyshite. You're only allowed to use the "Shite Factor" which is a function of the car's (un)desireability, rarity and condition.

Posted Image
Something rather non-UK spec about this Mitsi double cab dating from the days before pickups became all vulgar looking. Shite factor 50?

Posted Image
Toyota "Carib" - aka Corolla 4WD estate. Two tone paint and automatic transmission boost this one here. Shite factor 60

Posted Image
Former blood-box, chassis presumably Bedford CF. Ugly and uncommon. Shite factor 35 (45 if klaxons still operational)

Posted Image
Escort 3-door estate. Not as widespread as the 5-door. Practically worthless now but watch those prices rise as they disappear. Shite factor 20, plus 5 points for those nice limited edition white wheeltrims

Posted Image
Alfa 33 Cloverleaf. Evidently static for yonks, check out how green that tarmac is. Faded paint, zero resale value, probably won't ever drive again. Shite factor 40

Posted Image
Older Alfa. Don't know what it is. Looks to be race-prepped. Shite factor 25 and reducing

Posted Image
Original Sierra Cosworth. Looks careworn (often parked next to the seafront and hence frequently covered in salty water). Shite factor 10, halved if the owner cleans it and replaces that missing centre cap on the front rim

Posted Image
Forward Control L-R. Not painted in camo therefore Shite factor 40

Posted Image
BX Mk1 14E with original wheeltrims. In tidy daily driver condition. Shite factor 75

Posted Image
BX Mk1 16RS estate. Can't have been many of these built. Shite factor 78

Posted Image
505 GTD turbo estate. Earns points for ridiculous roofbox that the owner clearly couldn't be arsed to remove after the car's last trip abroad (probably 10 years ago). Shite factor 50

Posted Image
Red oxide Urvan, surfer dude owner clearly ran out of gloss black (or weed) after doing only one panel. Refreshing change from the jillions of Folksvagen boxes knocking around these shores. Shite factor 45

Posted Image
Not a Dolomite, apparently. Loses points for non-period registration mark (J64xxx wasn't reached till the early 1980s) and faux-retro plates. Claws back some crud-cred for having that shade of paint and those wheeltrims. Shite factor 55

Posted Image
Old Toymotor parked on the approach to the scrapyard. Unclear whether car was being repaired, or stripped before being dumped. Enormous tailpipe suggests (hopefully) the former. Non-trad plates mark it down. Shite factor 92

Posted Image
Subaru SVX. Too modern but utter scarcity a boost. Shite factor 80

Posted Image
Subaru pick-up. Crap colour, practically abandoned. Shite factor 65

Posted Image
Dead Sierra Ghia, not moved in five years. Paris Blue paint a bonus. Shite factor 30

Posted Image
Early Marbella. Naff colour. One original wheeltrim left. Isn't a Panda. Excellent. Shite factor 45

Posted Image
Renner 19 droptop painted, apparently, the same colour as those recent Fords earlier in the thread. Employee half-inching some leftover paint? These cars surprisingly thin on the ground, even in cabriolet-soaked Jersey. Shite factor 38

Posted Image
Late model Renner 4. Speaks for itself. Shite factor 72

Posted Image
Mini Moke. Mayfair wheeltrims and general wankyness bump this to Shite factor 54

Posted Image
Mk1 Justy. Evidently completely uncared for. Other side looked a lot better with both hubcaps intact. Nevertheless, Shite factor 48

Posted Image
Tatty Golf. Non-scene. Derv power. Looks like a zimmer frame in the back. Shite factor 57

Posted Image
Rotting 60s British paperclips-in-the-making. Bits falling off it by the hour. Close to a lot of restored stuff hence likely to be rejuvenated. Shite factor 88

Posted Image
Daihatsu thing. Probably seats about 20 farmworkers. These things rusted to bits in 3 years flat so this one's done bloody well to last so long. Shite factor 83

http://i146.photobuc...estatebrown.jpg
Clubby. Second one I saw this week in that colour. Let down by the Minilites. Shite factor 33

http://i146.photobuc...09-07/bmw02.jpg
Venerable Bimmer. Bit over-restored and the paint hurt my eyes. Crap front plate. Shite factor 37

http://i146.photobuc...-07/acclaim.jpg
Rust blisters, Triomatic badge and original dealer plates on this Acclaim. Shite factor 49

http://i146.photobuc...9-07/accord.jpg
Accord 3 door now few and far between. This one earlier model I think? Shite factor 41

http://i146.photobuc...-07/fez00-1.jpg
The pick of the ten mk2 Fiestas I've photographed in the last month - this incredibly crappy van. Mismatching seats for good measure. Shite factor 58

http://i146.photobuc...mk1cabrio-1.jpg
http://i146.photobuc...mk1cabrio-2.jpg
Cavalier automatic "Centaur" convertible. Words fail me. Shite factor 300

I first thought 1300 GTA Junior, but the double headlights threw me. Probably still got GTA & Junior in the title though! Might be 1500?

Have to say I like the Cosworth. It looks totally original down to a standard size exhaust and that has got to be rare!The paper clips in making is an extremely rare Series 5 Oxford estate. I hope it gets saved! But if its as rotten underneath as all teh external panels are its gonna be a big job :shock:

Time for another update. Excuse the quality on some of these, the cameraphone is definitely on its way out now and sacked me off while trying to get an impromptu snap of a BEIGE Y-REG AMBASSADOR that against all odds had somehow found its way to the island. Leics registration too.

Any guesses on this one? Registration plate on the rear looks like DVG286G, which comes up on mycarcheck.com as a Leyland but that's all I know!

Posted Image
Volvo forward control Land Rover type thingy.

Posted Image
Nice wheels, looks to be a late model.

Posted Image
The old biddy driver likes her window stickers.

Posted Image
Not really within my definition of shite, but left hand drive which I thought noteworthy.

Although both currently insured neither of these looks to have moved for YONKS.

In good condition :)

Part of a private collection, these are in a museum that opens to the general public in season.

http://i146.photobuc...tkchassis02.jpg
http://i146.photobuc.../tkfrontend.jpg
My guess is that these are Bedford TK chassis, the first one must be a boat dolly nowadays but no idea what the second (retaining engine) is utilised for.

http://i146.photobuc.../waverleysb.jpg
Probably the last remaining Bedford coach of this type in original condition on the island.

http://i146.photobuc...ecoachswift.jpg
The mainstay of the coach fleets is still the Leyland Swift dating from between 1987 and 1992.

http://i146.photobuc...eused/rt-01.jpg
Randomly this ship was leaving Jersey with nothing but this ex London double decker for deck cargo, in the colours of a Guernsey radio station and presumably on its way to either France or the UK.

Look closely and you can see the silver-on-red H, meaning that you can actually come to Jersey and hire this car! Much nicer than a Ka 8)

That's an Alvis Stalwart. Amphibious and very cool looking, but I hear they're not the easiest of things to own; when you're driving them on the road you have to run the nearside wheels up and down the kerb to let the transmission unwind - else things go bang.

No, but a friend came close to buying a full sized one - as close as viewing it with cash in his pocket. Unfortunately he suddenly came to his senses after working out how much the trip home was going to cost at 6mpg. Shame, 'cos I would have liked a go in that!

Wow a fellow shite enthusiast from the same fair isle, many of the crappers you've taken pics of are either cars that I've seen many times before or have actually driven, the old mk1 white Renault 5-my mate owns it and offered to swap it or sell it for next to nothing-6 years ago it looked mint but now its a bit...shite. the bronze Merc G-wagen we did some work on at the garage (smelt of shite I remember) and the green Renault 4 is just brilliantly shite to drive what with a weird column gearshift. The Citroen Visa is owned by a local mechanic who is well known locally for hillclimbing his mad 7 litre jag e-type but everytime I bump into him he's sat in his Visa-he really loves that thing-literally. My own shite consists of a 4.5 Rover SD1 (still classed as shite as every panel is either rotten or dented) a near minty SD1 2600 (shite because its not a vee eight) and a clean BMW e28 525i (the last two need to go!) I shall post up some pics of some more of Jersey's Jewels in honour of your fine work-and to any of the chaps on the mainland reading-I doubt you will ever see so much shite per square mile (vergee?) as you will in the shite capital of Jersey and the mileage is usually low too, I know of 4 abandoned BMW 6 series here amongst its many other hidden gems but the main problem is Jersey people never want to let go of any old shite the answer is always the same-"No its not for sale I'm going to restore it" type of thing but they never do. I weep I really do.
Drive it like its shite
