Posted 15 March 2016 - 03:19 PM

Following some requests and the reality that I should start posting on here again, what better way to start than by spamming the forum with my spots?

I've somehow ended up going abroad multiple times in the time since I last posted, so I'll start with those.

23097362596_41280280b3_z.jpg1975 Chrysler 180. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

Nice 180 seen near my hotel in Madrid.

23099216585_3ea1139fb8_z.jpg1969 SEAT 124 Familiar. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

Not so nice 124 seen in a typical neighbourhood. As per with most European cities, the interesting stuff is way away from the centre now.

23096650771_ac23d003b7_z.jpg1981 Talbot Horizon LS. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

23044485842_e83cf58a6e_z.jpg1979 Renault 18. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

23015181171_0d53e7f6d8_z.jpg1991 Toyota Camry. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

Didn't expect to see one of these. Actually the second one I saw that day.

23004558471_1d3e11993b_z.jpg1983 Opel Corsa. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

For whatever reason, these Corsa As survive super well in southern European countries. 

22955103656_c78df4c55a_z.jpg1978 SEAT 128 1430. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

The most fun thing can often be spotting the cars we never had. 

22341566973_a12c956d9d_z.jpgOldies galore. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

This was a good bunch of roads for old cars but this took the biscuit. I think the people waiting by a bus stop behind me thought I was insane.

22693143170_e23dbfaf1e_z.jpg1990 Nissan Bluebird SLX. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

Utterly spotless.

22434885038_d054c0d942_z.jpg1986 Peugeot 505. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

A bit down at the heel, the other side was full of dents.

22404102607_d9584db77a_z.jpg1979 Ford Fiesta. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

Still a couple of MK1 Festers about.

22381057148_782b35fe6f_z.jpg1987 Renault 11 1.7 GTX. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

22170080193_bc5a7c3f9b_z.jpg1979 Chrysler 150 LS. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

This was a delight.

22152218734_7c5fec5dcc_z.jpg1981 Renault 12. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

As was this. Again, there's loads of genuine old cars about in Southern Europe. 

 

More l8r.

1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

And a couple of modern Toyotas

Good God, I'll have to change my trousers now. The Reed green Nova and the Chrysler 150LS are worth a spotted thread on their own. Good to see you back, you've been missed.

I think those bars were just popular ornaments for the Spaniards back in the day. Also seen on continental (real) Minis.

 

Have some more:

 

22550646740_cb8724cfd8_z.jpg1984 Peugeot 205 GR. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

Ancient 205

22100486333_78689fe2ab_z.jpg1989 Suzuki Swift GT. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

I also saw one of these in Rome last week.

22702445295_fc4fa1f5d1_z.jpg1983 SEAT 131 Diplomatic. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

Was the 131 one of the most rebranded cars ever? These SEAT ones look class with vinyl roofs.

22678715131_0673c6dee5_z.jpg1976 SEAT 127. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

The omnipresent 127.

22619701922_bc6dd32fbc_z.jpg1983 Renault 9. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

Typical 9, not too rare in Spain just yet either.

16201164464_a57a4a9bf6_z.jpg1990 SEAT Malaga 1.5 GLX. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

To Barcelona, oddly plentiful for 80s cars. This Malaga appears to have crashed into a Spanish Halfords at some stage.

16205515713_16dd420dcf_z.jpg1989 Opel Kadett E Tiffany. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

Mintola Tiffany

16638767838_abdf60e6e0_z.jpg1986 Volkswagen Passat CL. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

This was no doubt built in Barcelona

16213209124_eb9851222d_z.jpg1980s Peugeot 305. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

Two lovely saloons seen within minutes of one another.

16837660185_65ebde9eca_z.jpg1986 SEAT Trans. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

Based on the MK1 Seat Panda, before the Marbella took over.

One of two Montegos I saw. The other drove past my hotel and looked in proper DIY specialist condition.

Based on the very same J4 we got here, just a tad longer lived….

 

Might post more this evening!

Cheers for the responses so far! I have an unhealthy addiction to spotting abroad it seems, as the stuff thins out here even more. Here's some from Rome, last week, mixed with some older ones.

25078826854_a696647eaf_z.jpg1983 Lancia Delta 1300. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

Ancient Delta, but not the oldest I saw.

25768137416_92bb5c84e7_z.jpg1989 Fiat Duna. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

The Duna was a booted Uno, but a South American Uno, which was a rebodied 147, which was a rebadged 127. Phew.

Still a load of old vans plying their trade over there, not quite sure how they keep ancient commercials going for so long, there's loads of 80s and early 90s Iveco trucks in various sizes still about too.

 

More soon!

It's great to see you back and don't worry if your spotted thread goes to page 2 pretty quickly, as most people's do. Just means I can witter endlessly in mine and not bother anyone, at least. Now we just need to convince Trigger to continue his and I reckon most of the old guard quality spotters will be back in the game!

 

Is there a way of finding out the ages of Italian cars by their reg. plates? I'm guessing that the Rome plates went from black to white some time in the mid-80's but that early Delta looks fantastic with the black ones and those miniature front ones just look perfect.

Some more, but all from my most recent Rome visit. Suppose I will have to put some UK spots up one day….

 

25854585595_5145e6451b_z.jpg1979 Volvo 244 DL. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

These are pretty scarce in Italy. 

25744903322_d7f68efb6b_z.jpg1990 Alfa Romeo 164 TS. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

These are also worryingly uncommon now. Seen oddly close to the touristy parts of the city.

25841839126_7e39c36b6d_z.jpg1993 Toyota Paseo. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

Never seen a MK1 Paseo before.

25589123620_0914b71436_z.jpg1979 Citroen LNA. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

I went looking for an Arna and came across an LNA instead. Not that disappointing I suppose.

25285971103_4ca04c3e41_z.jpg1981 OM Grinta. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

There is a lot of camper vans about, and a lot that are lived in. Don't think this one is.

Anyone know if this could be a former company car minus its livery? I was thinking maybe ACI?

Welcome back B'77.

I remember seeing loads of those quad lamp Renault 12s and Seat 131s in The Balearics in the early 1990s and I made sure I got a Guisval model of them both. Some incredible cars still going over there. I had totally forgotten about the Lancia Prisma and the Regatas are ace too!

Frankly, you could fill your thread with early Deltas and I'd be a happy viewer - the radiator muffs on that one are a particularly nice touch. I've never registered the hints of Volvo 340 styling in them before, though maybe that's the chrome work and paint shade of that one, rather than the actual shape. They've both got big thick C-pillars though, I suppose.

That Tipo could be an ex cab. It's remarkably solid looking. Love the old Italian number plates

How some of these bars have survived is beyond my ken. I stopped seeing cars like the 124 in Spain by the mid 1990s.

Great spots Bram_lad. It reminds me, I'm gonna have to put hawk up my Turkey spots, mind, I still haven't even uploaded my pre-Turkey UK spots yet and I still keep spotting almost everytime I'm outside.
