Was that Jaguar with a dragon on top of it from your 4th November post taken at, or advertising, a sculpture park or somewhere similar?

I have a strong suspicion it is the work of my mate’s son Luke, who has been creating smaller sculptures out of metal for probably 15 years now.


It was at the metalwork centre near Oswestry. It was pretty awesome.

Metalwork centre and Oswestry sounds about right, the whole family lives near Church Stretton now.

Good to see the ‘dragon car’ rather than secondhand descriptions of it, thanks for the picture.

Summer is upon us and I disappear off in my camper at all opportunities.

Which means I get to see more North Wales chod... and proper classics too.

In the first of two updates here's sone spots whilst travelling....

Up first a Reliant at Newborough on Anglesey. 20180428_141000.jpg

Then a Mini Ckubmam at Mold car boot.
20180429_112134.jpg

At Abersoch I spotted a Lada Niva and River 200 combo fading into the undergrowth 20180505_181504.jpg

A stunning (not shite) Alvis in Portmeirion.

20180506_143907.jpg

Beautiful

20180506_143915.jpg

Also at Portmeirion

20180506_143936.jpg

20180506_165136.jpg

And a ubiquitous VW Camper...

Another shiter from North Wales here too! I don't see anything like as much as you manage, but I'm reminded of a couple from the winter I snapped. The first was out on a run near Bangor I think, when I saw a rare VW camper:

 

20180304_100649.jpg

 

At first I couldn't work out the model, until I got round to the front and I cursed myself for being so stupid. It was quite obviously a very late registered T1.

 

20180304_100643.jpg

 

Still on the van theme I've seen this a few times, although sadly never mobile. I wonder whether it ever will be again?

North Wales truly is an awesome place to live!!!
There are loads of old chod about. I'm lucky that my girlfriend is as good at spotting old cars as me... she points them out for me to take photos of.

Summer is here!  And the shite is out... No I haven't had constipation I've been spotting!

 

In York this rather tasty Honda Civic caught the eye near the railway museum.... Mmmmm

20180529_174901.jpg

20180529_174853.jpg

 

Imagine my suprise when I spotted an almost identical Saab 9000 to mine in a secret location which I will keep secret so I can go buy it...

20180607_002930.jpg

 

Nice Legacy - pretty rare now

20180607_002954.jpg

 

On my commute home - A Mitsubishi Sapporo no less! IN BROWN!!! Be still my throbbing...... heart

20180609_165218.jpg

 

Golden brown texture like.... Cortina

20180610_150229.jpg

 

I see this Daimler nearly every day on my way to work... finally pulled over to snap it

20180613_112321.jpg

 

Astra Ass

 

20180617_151801.jpg

 

Keeping a Griffin theme have a Carlton in a pub car park

20180622_174919.jpg

 

In the same pub car park was a Beat!  No not the bangin tunes a Honda Beat

20180622_184232.jpg

 

Then I went to a show and behold the car park was full of win!  A Mk2 Espace

20180624_124943.jpg

 

And as all the pictures seem to be of the rear 3/4 of the cars... have a full frontal shot!

20180624_124952.jpg

 

Brooooon Midget

20180624_125337.jpg

 

Marcos did some ugly butts....

20180624_131717.jpg

 

I went to play guitar in a theatre in front of about 1000 people... this was in the staff car par.  I knew it would be alright.

20180628_161647.jpg

 

And finally a William.... Yes this oddball was in a show - Glorious

20180624_154607.jpg

Good evening dear reader, be you a new subscriber or a faithful spotting companion down the by way of shite.

I fear that you may well prosecute under the trade description act this update, as but two if the spots were in North Wales. Alas!!!!! The perils of holidaying.

In fair Devon where the rain incessantly poured, a rare glimpse of the big yellow ball in the sky revealed this beauteous Allegro. Resplendent.
20180731_170837.jpg

Loudly and in a clear voice I exclaimed "Ah a Ford Maverick" only to realise with crushing disappointment that it was in fact a Nissan Terrano II
20180730_182920.jpg

Summer = Maaarse Minors...
20180727_183807.jpg

Near Buxton in the Peakiest district since Pesky blinders wore a peaked cap to the peak of Ben Nevis a campsite was procured. Our pitch had a beautiful view from the front...
20180723_184934.jpg

And the side

20180723_184749.jpg

A Zephyr 6 loitered too. But I can't find a picture of it..

To Bodnant garden where the flowers bloom and the car park revealed such beauties as this Triumph
20180717_155657.jpg

No this bus hadn't in fact fallen over it is merely that after many years there is still no picture upload from the mobile site and hence the thumbnails are so small a any human eye cannot perceive them.

20180701_174313.jpg

Please oh please moderating gods please provide us with mobile uploads.

In offeration for said request humbly accept this picture of a Steam Engine.

20180624_130225.jpg

Adieu dear readers, Adieu.

I read about the beige 900 in the club magazine some time ago. It has a very interesting history :)

Was yours the Sonnett which said you’d rather drive it than wash it?

If so that got our vote for best Sonnett based on that alone!

I thought you were probably there, shame we didn’t meet.

Twas the night before Chumley, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring....

...except for your author dear reader. He can’t sleep. It must be the excitement!

Now I know spotted threads seem to be about as popular as Jeremy Corbyn at a Bar Mitzvah at the moment, but I am committed to bringing you my own brand of random photographs to peruse! And I shall not be dissuaded by unpopularity!

So come with me now to Rhyl, a trip to the arcades was augmented by this beautiful Transit camper beast.

A gentle stroll down Liverpool’s Bold Street yielded this AMC of bananariffic colouration:
30CF3484-0B3F-4256-A73B-FCC063FE28A5.jpeg

To the beautiful M56 next and is that a Tina I see before me? No sadly not the brunette beauty from S club 7 but a glorious beige number...
4134A7AA-26F1-4391-8621-98C0F7FE34CE.jpeg

To the little village of Brynford, a house was proffered for sale, a nice house, a viewing was considered, s driveby first to check it out showed the garden ornamentation to be top notch! 3EF1DA60-2434-4A58-AAB2-4825C7561D4A.jpeg
Sadly the house sold too quick for me...

Asda car park can yield some interesting chod: a Scirrocco today

Berrington hall is a lovely old pile owned by the National trust, well worth a visit, especially if you own a Sherpa Coupe chromius maximus edition

Ever played vehicular snap? I know I have... 4FE2C24D-FDF2-4EEC-8021-BE8F6B6A16FD.jpeg

A short break to the coast... the advantage of sitting high up is that I can see over walks and hedges. This Fiat Mirafiori the result if tip toes and bush parting (Fnarr fnarr)
