Snapped on a brief business trip to Belgium, and Holland.

in Bergen Op Zoom:

Apologies for the lack of clarity here, and you'll just have to trust me on this. This is in Tienen, just outside the sugar factory. On the back of the trailer just visible is a GSA Basalte. Camera phones always slow to react.

Unable to provide evidence, but the Liege ring road sported a fine concours BMW 3300Li saloon. Folkestone service station had a nice late Sigma Estate, and Veurne junction had a Honda Quintet with at least 11 Africans crowding around the open bonnet. It was on UK plates - expect it'll be on the Bay with "small engine problem" within a week. If it is still there tomorrow, I'll get a pic.

Prairie (loads of those on bricks near Guyhirn / March / Downham roundabout on the A47- are they still there?)

cheap nasty blancmange that followed me (couldn't get past me, obviously!!!) :wink: all the way from Luik. Needed three attempts to get it onto the Chunnel carriage due to vision and width constraints. Detected a strong Lithuanian accent from the two occupants. Tried to chat to them during the crossing, but they didn't know much about the car or English for that matter. Finally blasted past me and into London

All these spots of Land Rover based Santanas are making them seem common, yet I'd never even heard of them let alone seen one till these ones on the board!

Nice high roof Prairie!

Indeed, rare enough to see any Prairie nowadays. Following M11 model getting scarce too (they rot, even a low miles one I looked at a few years back was going bad).I remember the ones on the A47, didn't they also have the odd 504 pickup there?QX's almost always seem to be 2.0. Usually Nissan GB first registered too.

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

I can confirm that the 'A47 Prairies' are gone now as the house has been sold. The nearby sawn-off CF chassis cab has gone too as Wisbech stadium is being redeveloped into an exciting new complex of identikit shops and bowling alley.

Blimey - sold? That house? Isn't it 2 metres below sea level? Next to a river? I think the Prairies would have been worth more! Still, nice amount of land to store shite though.

Why do all Nissan MPV's rot like 70's Fiats? Is it cause they're built in spain like the Serena was (lots of tired looking ones around now)??As for the QX/Maxima range, The 2.0 was a V6 which I don't think was used in any other car. They're stuffed full of toys and never break down or rot, so do we still count them as shite..?

QX's are ace, I would own one in a flash if I didn't like diesel Pugs so much. Super-reliable, but it would have to be a manual one I think - don't the autoboxes self-destruct, or is that just the earlier Maxima?

Peterboro Sainsbury's car-park - rotten quality pic, but I have never seen a 2 door 80. CC spec adds to the appeal. That is a 'D' on the bumper though. Would B-reg be right for this?

Very curious. I wonder what their game was!

Yes Audi 80 B2 facelift could be had upto C, maybe D reg. I know the 90 of similar style could be had upto D reg.

Prairie

I had never seen a high roof one of those until earlier this year, possibly some sort of wheelchair-carrying conversion??

Didn't they offer mid 1980s Daihatsu Charades with a higher roof as well for some reason?

The higher roof is to accomodate an electric sliding sunroof. We had it on our one. Too much of a sacrifice in looks just for a sunroof IMO. Looks all worng.

May as well resurrect this rather than start a new one.

Followed this on the A140 - it moved at a fair old lick and the driver really flicked it around the roundabouts.
