Small update so I can’t be one of those guys accused of never posting car related stuff....


Cars cars cars... don’t we just love ‘em. Especially old and rusty ones, which form the majority of my latest spotting.

Near Ludlow I found a few old Ford Sporty models nicely festering like a metaphor of the UK following an event that we mention less than Basil Fawlty mentions the war....

When Britain was great we used to produce cutting edge shite such as the Maestro!! I found two within 2 minute of my house!! I then spent hours looking at Maestros on for sale sites!

Next to the Maestro was this Austin...

Hinduism (which is one of those things beginning with R that we don’t mention) believes that fire is sacred and purifies all it touches. With that in mind please view the purist bus local to me!

Yes I’ve been a touch tongue in cheek in this update, I’m sorry if you haven’t enjoyed my poking fun. But I’m sure one thing we can all agree on and enjoy is a photo of a Pogweasal pink Nissan Almera. Marketed as the car they don’t want you to have. So on that basis I’ve never owned one...

Well that’s all for now, it’s been lovely, I’ll pop back again sometime soon and we can do it all again!

A crop of my spots of recent weeks.

I seem to have been saving some up here, none of them exactly mind blowing but here we go anyway!
First up this Prelude was a nice change from the usual blandness in a car park in Warwickshire:

Wellesbourne airfield use this Tata as their safety vehicle...

Old lady drove this blue rinse Diahatsu Charade

Seen a glut of 205s lately. This ones the best.

More to come soon spot fans!

Went to a local cars and coffee event today. I took the Saab, and didn’t stay long...but in amongst the Porsches, Lambos, and copious amounts of Caterham 7s lurked a few gems of shite proportions!

First up was this 3.5litre Kit car which was a pretty thing to look at in an ugly kind of way

Possibly my favourite car of the line was this Fiesta. It was immaculate.

Wish I’d taken mine... although this one would have put it to shame!

You know me, I love a Nova!

Not all Vauxhall’s are shit... there I said it!

Although if i was picking my favourite yellow car I’d take this.

And finally! I was so proud of (soonnto be) Mrs_brownnova when she uttered the most romantic words ever: “aren’t those door handles off a Morris Marina”

Yes, yes they are!
