Words really do fail. It's great to see the variety of chod on the continent - I love how differently cars weather over there, it's hard to describe, I know it's mostly down to climate though. 

 

Didn't BorniteIdentity own that green Sierra at the bottom of p1 for a while?

New year blues? I'll try and help with a roundup of my UK spots of 2017. I don't actually recall the last time I posted any, so here you go:

 

31785453023_52d524657a_k.jpg1987 Citroen BX19 DTR. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

I left a note on this one a few months and heard diddily squat back. It did rain just after though, so my note probably turned into mush.

 

32485402870_1df690434c_k.jpg1994 Rover 820i Automatic. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

This 800 has been getting progressively rougher over the years. Still about though.

 

31792603764_f5fcb03ba6_k.jpg1994 Vauxhall Corsa Van 1.7D. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Some legend uses this for handywork locally, good on them.

 

31782719183_c0b5e81fac_k.jpg1994 Peugeot 306 XS. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Seen in a rich bit of Hampstead (which is probably all of it), how fit do the early 306s now look? In fact I am down that way again next week, might leave my details on it.

 

31811575944_a84ef3cf15_k.jpg1994 Vauxhall Cavalier 1.7 TD. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Round the corner from the 306. Sheddy Cavaliers still easily found in London.

 

32587924872_e264f306c5_k.jpg1977 Saab 96. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

ONE OWNER?11/

 

32418170410_890df5114f_k.jpg1986 Nissan Sunny Spirit SGL. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Another Hampstead landmark.

 

32381209420_f754a79af1_k.jpg1989 Ford Escort Ghia. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

32526973192_569d617ad8_k.jpg1986 Fiat Uno 45 S. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

32507761996_e923d3d381_k.jpg1980 Vauxhall Carlton 2000. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

The Uno and Carlton live right next to one another on a reasonably iffy feeling (but in reality fine) estate.

 

32299383234_b0bc0a9bdc_k.jpg1987 Ford Transit 80 Popular. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

LEZ beater.

 

34510500335_d531c9e5c2_k.jpg1991 Peugeot 405 GTX. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Not many early 405s still about.

 

32759348022_0e4a7a102b_k.jpg1990 Rover Maestro Special. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

33015583876_8021485737_k.jpg1970 Volvo 131. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

I though deliberate rat look, but I think the owner just likes primer.

 

33282165875_89c06d150b_k.jpg1992 Citroen ZX Aura. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Nice early ZXs are stupidly scarce now.

 

35078763042_1356b91df9_k.jpg1993 Citroen ZX Aura 1.9D Auto. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Oh there's another one...

 

33161907446_3d8ef7834b_k.jpg1987 Toyota Celica GT. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Nothing says winner like a two tone mid 80s Jap.

 

33912663840_4dd2f18ed8_k.jpg1991 Vauxhall Astra Belmont L. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Mega late Belmont here. God knows how cheap this was.

 

34278912645_e77d0f1d7f_k.jpg1993 Vauxhall Cavalier GLS & 1988 Freight Rover Sherpa City. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Winner.

 

32801634350_eb62e9ce8e_k.jpg1990 Vauxhall Cavalier. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

The elderly owner of this has a driveway stuffed with old cars, including a Talbot Alpine.

 

33886002550_44c6e870af_k.jpg1988 Fiat Uno 45 S. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

34269740955_14692fa406_k.jpg1996 Daewoo Nexia GLXi. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

33491615404_ea1ca1f9c4_k.jpg1993 Peugeot 306 XT. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Exhibit B in the 'How fit are early 306s now' case study

 

36155571003_ba41526a17_k.jpg1997 Nissan Primera Equation. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Check this dismal thing out. All I can figure is that it's some sort of ultra base spec Primera.

 

33522768113_95bdf0f1cd_k.jpg1984 Vauxhall Cavalier L. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Ugh.

 

32943474310_d4f3a654fd_k.jpg1977 Morris Marina Super. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

33325956635_a0f0798f32_k.jpg1977 Morris Marina Super. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

This was amazing! BL stuff in daily use is odd in London now.

 

34158017301_e4f23ad41f_k.jpg1996 Citroen Xantia Activa Turbo & 1993 Mitsubishi Galant V6 24v. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

34017202610_457e6d10e7_k.jpg1995 Vauxhall Cavalier LS. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

This was outside a hotel. I don't know about you, but what great advertising!

 

I will add more later.

It even had all round manual windows. How depressing. 

 

 

Anyway, have some more.

 

34293020642_bf8a5439cd_k.jpg1992 Nissan Primera GSX. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

This was a nice sight down in my old 'ends'. Never saw it when I actually lived there mind.

 

34461526416_f9ba3fbbb4_k.jpg1991 Citroen BX19 TGD. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

I parked my old blue BX behind this one and the owner didn't give one shit.

 

34322675462_9820cac7c9_k.jpg1989 Toyota Camry 2.0 GLi. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

This local legend has been hanging on for dear life for years now. Still running though.

35245923622_9f0f605b52_k.jpg1996 Citroen Synergie Wheelhome Camper. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

I know it's modern dross but its a damn camper Synergie. 

 

24833305358_d500783f66_k.jpg1991 Saab 9000 Turbo Carlsson. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

35432418965_120d5fe33a_k.jpg1983 BMW 323i. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Early E30s are my fave BMWs. The detailing is just right.

 

34922475760_3f9b394ecb_k.jpg1989 BMW 730i Automatic. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

..followed closely by these 7 series. Utterly lovely.

 

34622548413_b7e5994b4c_k.jpg1992 Rover 820 SLi Automatic. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

This has had a wall built around it, nice garden feature though.

35471595685_c7a34e9645_k.jpg1993 Proton 1.5 GLS. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Some hero in Maidenhead parks various 90s dross down this road, this is a recent addition I believe.

 

35471594155_c2ec3fad17_k.jpg1992 Renault 19 RT. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

35471592645_fff02d0c8c_k.jpg1996 Alfa Romeo RZ. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Seen outside Alfa Aid. Good place to see Alfas, funnily enough.

 

35490691435_9c6e941367_k.jpg1999 Alfa Romeo 166. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

35360134551_ccb1cdb142_k.jpg1994 Vauxhall Cavalier LS. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Filthy.

Slough summed up in one photo.

35499574575_ea46d216c5_k.jpg1987 Toyota Carina GL. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

This was scrapped since.

35123109284_9818808563_k.jpg1988 Toyota Space Cruiser. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

35123107254_89f0dc9aaa_k.jpg1987 Austin Montego L. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

I think this failed an MOT reasonably severely:

 

Reason(s) for failure
  • Nearside Rear Body has a sharp edge caused by corrosion outer arch (6.1.C.1)
  • Emissions not tested excessive black smoke (7.3.A.1)
  • Exhaust emits visible black smoke at idle (7.3.A.2b)
  • Offside Rear Outer Suspension component mounting prescribed area is excessively corroded sill (2.4.A.3)
  • Offside Rear Inner Suspension component mounting prescribed area is excessively corroded sill (2.4.A.3)
  • Offside Rear Seat belt anchorage prescribed area is excessively corroded inner and outer sill (5.2.6)
  • Offside Front Inner Suspension component mounting prescribed area is excessively corroded sill to floorpan (2.4.A.3)
  • Nearside Front Inner Suspension component mounting prescribed area is excessively corroded sill to floor pan (2.4.A.3)
  • Nearside Rear Front wheel bearing has excessive play (2.5.A.3c)
  • Offside Rear Front wheel bearing has excessive play (2.5.A.3c)
  • Nearside Rear Seat belt anchorage prescribed area is excessively corroded in door sill (5.2.6)
  • Offside Rear Suspension component mounting prescribed area is excessively corroded shock absorber mounting area in fuel cap (2.4.A.3)

35199180240_836fb8c7cd_k.jpg1994 Rover Montego Countryman. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Another one, not connected. 

 

34795893053_49efad731a_k.jpg1986 Ford Sierra Ghia Automatic. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Shame to see this looking so dead.

 

Lastly for now:

35517249941_6cf5c2081b_k.jpg1991 Nissan Maxima V6 SEL. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Almost had a heart attack when this came trundling towards me. God bless the OAPs of Reading for driving such wonderful stuff. 

 

 

More laters!

Some more:

 

35517248041_08faa80fbd_k.jpg1994 Citroen ZX Avantage. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

ZXs seem rare now. I appreciate they can rot, but it's still a shame.

Early Corrado!

 

34883271040_5e8912389d_k.jpg1982 Fiat 131 Supermirafiori. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

This actually lives down my road. It was presented for an MOT not too long ago, but for some reason the not too severe fail seems to have put the owner right off. I would enquire but strongly suspect I would be told to stick it.

 

36760958995_8b00f4ad8a_k.jpg1997 Rover 820. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Nice. Another 90s car that has just outright vanished, although there is always a very steady stream of them for sale.

 

36621790771_90da288207_k.jpg1994 Renault Clio RT. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

Still a fair few long term owner Volvos in London.

 

35722134186_e4554e38a4_k.jpg1995 Peugeot 306 SLDT Sedan. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

I had a mega horn for this, yet left no note. 

 

35822315880_e8337cc98b_k.jpg1985 Nissan Micra GL. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

The owner of this also has a Chrysler Avenger.

Saw this right after a nice 505 raced past, bah!

How nice is this? 

 

35203814746_dcba464127_k.jpg1989 Fiat Tipo. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Base Tipo which is now a garden feature.

The nicest Laguna I have ever seen.

I made a friend in the owner of this BX, and spoke down the phone a few times after leaving a note. He won't be selling anytime soon, but nice to chat.

33063412914_4bea9ba762_k.jpg1978 Renault 7 GTL. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Perhaps one of the weirdest/best imports. 

 

37263123612_a06890af6a_k.jpg1988 Ford Escort Popular. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Look at that mega tidemark!

24522773327_33582be0ed_k.jpg1988 Toyota Hi-Ace. by Sam Osbon, on Flickr

 

Old Japanese stuff still reasonably common in certain parts of West London, but it's got a lot rarer now.  

 

More another day.
