I thought it about time I started my own thread. I've been taking mediocre camera phone pictures of old shite since about 2006 or so, therefore lots of these cars may no longer be alive.

 

Warning, there will be lots of air-cooled VW content, suck it up.

Great pics, thanks for posting these. I loved the Borgward Coupe, I have not seen one before.

An overwhelming amount of tat, too much to take in. Particularly like the Panhard, for obvious reasons, but lots of other great stuff here. Just goes to show how much stuff was still knocking about until quite recently.

I think lots is still about, you just have to look - many of these are on quiet residential streets, dead ends, small villages. You just have to take a different route now and again.

Yep, Shogun - although I had to zoom in on the photo to see the badge. I thought the indicator/sidelight was the biggest clue.

I was in Brighton on Monday, this place is Chodsville. I think the Mazda UmBongo Friendee is the new VW bus, didn't realise they came in Ford flavour too;

 

I probably saw twice as many but couldn't get a snap.

Loads of other shite found on a walk around the area (it was getting dark so some are a bit grainy)

 

The SEAT has a lovely Gaffer tape window seal.

 

There were many, many ovloVs.

 

The MX5 either had open windows or no windows and the door card hanging off.

 

The ZX was battered, half on double yellows and hadn't moved in a while.
