Wow. Great work spotting that BBC lorry in the wild. Had to look it up as I had no idea what it is. Internet sez 1969 Albion Clydesdale.


Yeah I was surprised to see it too! I'd never seen anything like it before.

Morning!!  It's been a while since an update to my chod spotting activities - but here are a few that I have seen (and been able to take pics of)

 

First up an Opel Manta spotted in my old haunt of Blacon whilst out dog walking

WP_20150722_16_33_32_Pro.jpg

 

Next (possibly one of my greatest ever photographs... the dog spotted a cat just at the moment I was taking the picture!!)  The MG Midget that rusts merrily on a driveway in Blacon.

WP_20150722_16_46_15_Pro.jpg

 

Someone's Granny up next (Why fit those LEDs though?)

WP_20150801_11_04_28_Pro.jpg

 

Spotted in Tescos car park

WP_20150806_11_51_19_Pro.jpg

 

Spotted in a pub car park

WP_20150809_13_50_41_Pro.jpg

 

Spotted in the town hall car park! (This was absolutely spotless!)

WP_20150816_12_48_25_Pro.jpg

 

And finally back to Tescos for this Collette special edition!

WP_20150816_14_19_26_Pro.jpg

 

 

Have seen some prime chod since moving back to North Wales, including a Talbot Alpine, Datsun Patrol and Porsche 944, just need to be quicker on the camera!!

I live in North Wales, Anglesey to be precise. Is that Aston a DB5 by any chance? if so, that guy is sitting on a goldmine as he could indeed get silly money for it, even in that condition and he obviously isn't going to restore it himself. 

 

There is a rather tempting abandoned Volvo 44 on someone's drive locally to me, and I have a garage, I'm so tempted to pop over and make them an offer. Belt drive auto transmission, what could possibly go wrong?

 

I also know someone who has a gorgeous pale blue Vauxhall Royale saloon in their garage, owned by their late grandfather from new. It hasn't turned a wheel in at least ten years to my knowledge. I suspect they'd want silly money for it though. The grandson says he's going to restore it, but pulled it out of the garage and left it on the drive all last winter before putting back in the garage. The previously unmarked bumpers got covered in rust as the house is near the sea. Maybe he is getting the car into a worse condition so as he'll have more to do when he comes to restoring it!

Damn, was going to don my Volvo/Daf anorak and correct you.

 

There is a chap on the island by the name of Joe, he is into his Dafs/Volvos. He has opened a watch sales/repair shop recently. 

 

If you do get the Volvo it might be worth your while going and saying hello to him. He would be a mine of info, etc.

I'm the other end of North Wales in Mold!

I always think its odd when someone leaves a car on their drive for years and years and won't even listen to offers (I know Aston man has had many!)

I must get round to enquiring about that Estelle when I go back to work in September.

The Royale is a saloon, or what's left of it is!

 

Thanks for the info ref. Daf/Volvo man. My parents-in-law had a Volvo 340 DL auto. once, it was quite good fun in a strange kind of way as when you drove it the revs went up and down but no actual gear-changes happened.

 

There's a fantastic car/bike museum on Anglesey where they have an amazing range of cars, from Escort XR3's back to Austin 10's. Well worth a visit and they host car groups, possibly good place for a meet?

 

It's called "Tacla Taid" in Welsh, which rather amusingly means Grandad's Tackle in English!

Mornin! 

 

An update to the Shite spotting today, mostly local spots this time...

 

First up continuing the 'in car park' theme, this Sherpa convertible was in Homebase car park - *Late registration madness!!!

 

WP_20150825_16_09_13_Pro1.jpg

 

Just around the corner from my new house, down a track I found this P5!  Would love to own a P5 one day.

 

WP_20150825_16_14_00_Pro1.jpg

 

Out walking the dog and spotted this Landy on a driveway.

 

WP_20150831_15_45_32_Pro1.jpg

 

Just around the corner there is a yard with a few festering 4x4s in - This early Rangey probably the pick of the bunch

 

WP_20150831_15_48_55_Pro1.jpg

 

In the same yard is a Metro GTa - which I found myself strangely drawn to!

 

WP_20150831_15_48_27_Pro1.jpg

 

And finally... 

Went out for a jaunt to Mid-Wales to Powis Castle, and happened across a Marlin owners club meet...

Well that's all for now folks!  Happy spotting!

A spottings update now!  Just a little one - you see it's now dark when I leave the house, and dark when I return.  So spotting activity is limited!

 

First up these two beauties live on the same road as me!

 

These seem to be popular on AS at the moment!  Here's the sports version.  same bloke has a Calibra too!

 

WP_20151003_18_13_27_Pro1.jpg

 

Two doors down and a 75 lurks... It look immaculate!  But I've never seen it move...

 

WP_20151108_16_40_09_Pro1.jpg

 

Meanwhile in Lidl's carpark...

WP_20150919_18_25_23_Pro1.jpg

 

Not a symphony, nor an adagio, but for sale on my route to work...

WP_20151020_07_29_21_Pro1.jpg

 

Also for sale locally (It might be gone now as I took this picture about three weeks ago...)

WP_20151021_16_01_02_Pro1.jpg

 

And finally!!!  I recently went to Llangollen car museum (A half term treat!, and a lovely run over the horseshoe pass) and my goodness did this catch my eye!!! By far my favourite car of the collection!

WP_20151026_13_46_01_Pro1.jpg

 

That's all for now...  More to come soon hopefully!

Of I went for Christmas morning razz in the MX5 (well the Mrs was in work, and I wasn't going to the in laws until lunchtime!)

Another beautiful day in North Wales.
WP_20151225_09_27_53_Pro.jpg

As I passed a truck yard I spotted this lovely Christmas day spot

WP_20151225_09_35_19_Pro.jpg

It looked resplendent in its JRG/rust combo...

A couple of days previously I saw this...
WP_20151221_15_26_27_Pro.jpg

Bit it's not as good as the Transit!

That Transit, or rather the background, looks like that yard near Pontybodkin. If so he usually has some proper Autoshite type trucks knocking about. Anyhow, regardless of that, top work for a Christmas day, that's dedication for you!

I think that Four Girls Coaches just down the road used to have an ancient Volvo truck still working, and the car repair garage up the road used to have a boss metallic purple Cortina Mk3 2000E in there, but that was probably 18-20 yeas ago now.

So I didn't win a Prelude apparently... My disappointment levels are high....  I know what will cheer me up!  Sharing some spots! 

 

It's been winter, so some people have kept their interesting vehicles squirrelled away in heated cocoons... Not these people!!!

 

First up a piece of wedgy Germanica which I found in Asda's car park - so i parked next to it naturally!

WP_20160109_14_36_42_Pro1.jpg

WP_20160109_14_36_50_Pro1.jpg

 

Next up... In a yard not to far from my house... This appeared

WP_20160123_11_12_44_Pro1.jpg

 

Was a bit on the rusty side, I'm imagining a resto job for the company opposite ( edit - Just checked the MOT history - it's just had a full year's ticket put on it!)

WP_20160123_11_13_08_Pro1.jpg

 

Also in their yard... Yep that is a brown SD1 in the background.  I walk past this den of temptation every Sunday on my way to church...

WP_20160123_11_14_06_Pro1.jpg

 

This keeps appearing locally...

WP_20160221_15_02_13_Pro1.jpg

 

And this was in another nearby garage's yard for a couple of days... looked very tidy, and a great colour scheme too!

WP_20160228_17_14_45_Pro1.jpg

 

Tesco's car park yielded another Merc 190 - nice plate!

WP_20160304_11_40_26_Pro1.jpg

 

And saving the best* til last... driving home the other day I spied this purple Diahatsu Cuore for sale!  Just 29,000 miles and clear evidence of careful giffer ownership.  I wasn't surprised when I drove past on the Monday and it had sold over the weekend!

WP_20160311_16_38_41_Pro1.jpg

 

That'll do for now... Off to lurk in bushes in the hopes of even better spots next time!

Prynhawn da! As they say in Wales....

 

Today's brownnova spotted thread has a theme.... the 1980s!!!! So step back in time with me, to a time where the following vehicles were available to buy new!

 

And we start tonight with a lovely truck registered in the 80s.... which still earns it's keep as a house removals van to this day! Often to be seen trundling round with the contents of someone's house within it's cavernous interior!

WP_20160508_18_23_02_Pro1.jpg

 

Amazing to think these were still being made into the mid 80s... This one is regularly seen around the town of Mold. 

WP_20160401_17_03_32_Pro1.jpg

WP_20160401_17_00_09_Pro1.jpg

 

Up next... Fire up the Quattro... 

WP_20160405_11_25_41_Pro1.jpg

 

Breaking with the 80s theme for a moment.... This was outside a local purveyor of vehicle repairs recently.  I thought it was pretty awesome!

WP_20160408_13_37_40_Pro1.jpg

WP_20160408_13_37_53_Pro1.jpg

 

I'll move chronologically onto the 90s with the next posting!

They always say, start your next point by linking to your last one.....

 

So... remember the 80s.... Here's one more 80s spot.  Rotting peacefully at a garden centre on the Wirral....

WP_20160416_15_17_22_Pro1.jpg

 

One from the early 90s then... GSi3000 no less!!! Outside Aldi... this guy (or gal) has class!

WP_20160513_17_23_50_Pro1.jpg

 

Montego (from a distance....and outside Tesco... do i spend all my time in supermarkets??)

WP_20160427_17_03_52_Pro1.jpg

 

And.... (drum roll please...) Yes, that's a Hyundai X2!!! (and a Nissan Juke.... but let's not dwell on that. Oh and this time we're outside B&Q... just for a bit of variety)

WP_20160423_17_10_20_Pro1.jpg

 

And no... I won't be doing spots from 2000 onwards next time...

Excellent spots, I'll have to start a thread sometime with some of my archive.  There's a Triumph 2000 with a roof rack in Bridlington that looks like it's actually been in the sea, fate conspired me to miss taking a picture of it and ruined my day the other day, but I will get it.

I know we've all been on the edge of our seats awaiting more epic spotting activities....

 

That may be happening elsewhere on the site, but here we'll keep a sedate pace of bad photos thanks!

 

So from best to worst this time!  When I took the MX to get welded, the guy who owns the garage had just finished working on this:

WP_20160602_11_38_41_Pro1.jpg

 

He's an SD1 fetishist, so feel my cars are safe with him!

 

Next up I went out to Liverpool... for a night out!  But thankfully upon arrival there was a small display of classic vehicles (the group I had gone out with lost me for a while....)  

 

WP_20160709_15_30_59_Pro1.jpg

These dangly mirror Sierras are everywhere....

There was a Borgward Isabella too.... but I was getting hurried along by the rest of the group by the time I got to that.....

 

Up the Horseshoe Pass t'other day.

And finally....  BXs are getting some love around here, so I thought I'd pap one.... Except it was raining hard, and I misjudged the wiper wipeyness.  So we are left with the second worst photo in the entire thread!

I was fortunate to venture to far away shores this summer!  Florida the destination!  But the preconceptions of America as the land of the Crusty Cadillac or the bodged Buick were dashed... there were more financed "Huuundays", "Neeesaaans" and "Haandas" per square mile than anything else!

 

I did however see a lovely bronze Triumph Spitfire, a 'many shades of blue' MGB (Sherpa cabrio) and a rusty TR& on a driveway.  Of course, camera not to hand.  And when I started pointing my camera towards Dodgy looking Lincoln Town Cars and Cadillac deVilles, I got THE look...

 

But one of the days we went to a weekly car show in Kissimmee, and here I was allowed to take pics.

 

So enough pre-ambling it's picture time!

 

Well it has to be a Nova to start!

In the town of St Augustine I saw this weird hearse... you could go on ghost tours in it!

And in Universal studios there was a diner, with some motors parked for street dressing!

That 80's registered removal truck is indeed in regular use.

We used that company to move us from Holywell to trefnant this February and that's what turned up!!
