An Argenta!!! Graham Robson described this as "now thankfully dead" in his Cars of the 1980s book so if he hates it then that's a solid confirmation that it's platinum shite material.

Great spots. My fav though is the green Toyota Crown, lovely big old barge that would look much better on my drive!

Okay, here is a small update from Amsterdam. I spent a lot of time on a bicycle and as such have found myself really into it again. Not into it enough to buy a new bike, but…y'know.

 

Anyway:

LOADS of DS about. Not many as rough as this though.

A few US tanks still trundling, but the recent tax changes to cars there have a made absolutely ridiculously expensive to tax, so there we go.

Played a dangerous game here, stopped in the middle of a cycle lane to take this.

A pretty heroic effort for a van, good idea though. I saw a later Voyager with the same treatment but it wasn't half as cool

This was one of my personal favourite spots ever, sadly it got scrapped a few months after I took the photos. Unfortunately post 2012 (when there was absurd amounts of crud about), everything has kind of disappeared.

Pfffffffffft. Where to start? The rest of us may as well not bother with a spotting thread, when there's one of this calibre. Excellent stuff - there's barely even any post 2001 plates in that last post, either!

Those ones are from 2012/13. 

I seemed hellbent on going to London every other day back then, although having a girlfriend (at the time) who worked near Wimbledon certainly helped.

THIS is what this forum is about for me. Incredible spots.

There's still some proper chod around That London mind you, but whenever I'm there I'm usually in a lorry so stopping to go and take photos is generally out of the question.

The shite situation in Rome is decent, but the areas vary wildly. Anything east of the centre is crammed, basically. and the North isn't too bad, but you can find yourself in areas of all brand new cars quite easily.

Great spots!!!! That Fiat 127 wagon is fantastic but my favourite is the early Delta. You've done well there - whenever I've been to Italy it's been a SHITE DESERT.

This was my fave this time round.

I've got another trip planned in March, and I will find the 132 diesel I've been after for yonks. I think I actually found out where it lives now....watch this space.

I really want a Ritmo. No idea why.

How do you date 'em? Can you tell the age from Italian plates or do they have some sort of tax-disc style thing with a reg date on? Or is it an educated guesstimate?

Do like the ‘power’ bulge on the bonnet of the diesel Rekord/Carlton.

 

And a Stellar in Rome?!


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 recall seeing that circa 1968 Mazda with one set of headlights missing, that was in Eltham. I took my mum to the dentists just a few doors along and wandered back to have a look. Think someone did buy it and hopefully it'll return to the road.

Time to update this. I went on a few holidays again (as you do right?)

 

I went to Rome, again, in March. Have some shots:

There's still a lot of these about. Peugeot ones a bit scarce though.

Every single old car looks better with old Italian plates.

That is battered, even for an Italian car...

One of those bizarre Brazilian Fiat Unos Fiat decided to use the Innocenti brand for.

Regatas are surprisingly abundant for their age. The streets aren't lined with them of course, but I see them every time I go to Italy.

Not that easy to see now. I did see a fair amount in Sicily though, although old cars are common there.

Check these out. Apparently the Polizia largely binned all their old stuff recently so these are lucky survivors. I used to early Stilos a lot, I guess they got fed up of breakdowns in those.

 

33870979675_a41631811b_b.jpg1986 Citroen Visa Club. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

I think every single Visa in Italy has the 652cc 2CV engine.

Okay, have some more foreign spots then...

Back in May I went to Thessaloniki. It's the second biggest city in Greece, did you know the Frappe was invented there? 

There's tons of old stuff about.

I think was the sheddiest van I saw on the road. Talk about patina!

Brill updates, as usual. Personal favourites have to be the 1980 Panda and 1981 Delta, for the mega early design purity points. But, as worldofceri asked:

 

 

How do you date 'em? Can you tell the age from Italian plates or do they have some sort of tax-disc style thing with a reg date on? Or is it an educated guesstimate?

 

Come on, what's the secret!

 

 

Please keep posting though, quality spot threads are one of my favourite bits of AS.
