I spied a red diesel BX with black bonnet during the week in Cumbernauld, unfortunately I wasn't in the 405 so no XUD drag race.

During the week a car transporter took a wrong turn and had to back into our depot entrance to turn around. The only car on it was an immaculate 1950s Hillman Minx.
I only got dragged to the window in time to see it going having had someone shout across to tell me that my new car was being delivered

Heading east on the A48, a convoy of a dozen or so 2CVs with French and Belgian plates; an early DS was in there too.

Spotted an Aston DB6 "FUG 990D" going into Ealing this morning.

 

Coming home from work yesterday, a beige Peugeot 205 XRAD van being given some beans on the Eastbound North Circular from Hanger Lane to Brent Cross.

Walking to work yesterday: suddenly, there's a fairly well-used looking bluey-green 1970s Oldsmobile Cutlass sedan standing at the lights bang in front of me. In central Belfast. This is utterly unknown.

^^^ It's only a few months old!!!

 

Life was fractionally easier when I used to carry my Zenit E SLR about with me in a rucksack. That way, there was at least a week between clicking the shutter and blubbing messily because everything was slightly out of focus or underexposed.

 

 

EDIT: fortunately, it looks like other shiters are quicker on the draw than me. Spotted on the Northern Retros FB page, snapped a bit further down the road from where I encountered it.

EDIT EDIT: and it was in Lisburn on Saturday.

I've only just noticed this thread. I could write essays here; I live on the B5105, the road from Englandshire which connects to the so-called Evo-Triangle. If you like spotting interesting cars, here's the place.

 

Also, in and around our village there are at least two Mk2 Landrovers, a couple of Mk1 and 2 escorts and a Vauxhall Cavalier mk1, a big old Peugeot 505 estate in beige, a neighbour who restored all manner of old cars, owns a 996 911, a Porsche Boxter and a very old Rolls, a dealer of vintage tractors and a couple who between them have an old horse lorry, a Fiat Panda, a Suzuki Jimny Pinin, a yellow Ford Mustang and an orange wrapped 996 911... and now an old battered Cayenne.

 

Then there are the passing cars and car clubs. The list is about endless, with classic British sports cars, Caterham 7s every weekend, I've seen Landrover clubs, Classic shite clubs, Jag XK clubs, Honda s2000 clubs, MX5 clubs, countless weird bikes as well as the normal fashionable bikes, high performance German car clubs, Random Boyracer gangs, and Italian supercars to mention just what I can think of.

 

And then there is the Bryn Saith Marchog service station, which is posted in Shite Places to Buy Fuel... http://autoshite.com...t-110718/page-3

 

OK I'll try to call them out as I see then from now :)

Can someone link me to the Lazy Spotters thread? Because I got some pics of some of the Rolls Royce modern and classic club day out (I tend to make my own names up, no idea if it was a club or what it's called!) that swung past my house (see above).

 

This time I managed to whip out my camera and take these shots of some very old and shiny Silver Ghosts as well as a more recent one.

 

If you zoom in a bit you might see something...

M reg Merc W124 on Middleton Hall road in Brum in a lovely two tone black and grey paintjob

G reg Volvo 340 five door hatch on Alwold Road in Weoley Castle arguably in blue, possibly one of those shades of green that looks blue but technically isn't

No pics of any of them because I was driving

Spied another 405 this morning, on the road into Balloch. It was a red estate. Old boy driving it, flashed my lights and waved, got a confused look then a retrospective wave through the open window which I caught in the mirror.

Not one of those Ford Escorts; t'was a 100E type. Coulda been a Squire I suppose; either way, it was somewhat unrestored.

Spotted a very old Alto GL driven by what seems to be a provisional driver without provisional plates. After accelerating up a hill he then gets exponentially slower when it flattens out. Or perhaps that's the car.

Drove past a lovely 400E dropside and I immediately looked for a parking space; none available of course.

 

By the time I'd found a slot and dashed back, it was driven away as I impotently fished around for my camera.

 

Woulda been a great shot too; it was loaded up with freshly cut trees and parked outside a funeral directors.
