Pretty sure there's not a thread entitled "Fragments of 'shite found at the roadside" so I'll bung this in here. Found yesterday outside my local Co-op, I just couldn't leave this sorry thing to the mercy of the Caahncil roadsweeper (she's a very nice lady but I'm certain she wouldn't appreciate the provenance of this particular piece of detritus).

So it's now in my garage and I'll bin it in a few years time probably.

Nice one! I found a Moke mudflap in the road a while back. Never did spot a Moke running round with one missing, so ebayed it (to Italy) earlier in the year.

A lean month, what with the working and everything.

 

Change my pitch up, smack my Benz up (it's not my Benz tho).

Old-school industrial estates can be fertile spotting grounds; they'd build a canteen but they haven't got much space. Yeah? Yeah.

Old-school estates can be spotted elsewhere, No obscure music references are forthcoming at this time.

A somewhat newer estate and not a 300C which surprised me when I spotted this from the rear; Dodge Magnum RT

Golf GTI with balloon tyres.

Driven by a younger person; the classic car scene still has a future.

Older persons can be relied upon for classics scenes

If it's got four wheels you can cross continents in it, whether you like it or not.

Voluntary services have interesting motors sometimes.

Historics at Brooklands auction; what's wrong with this picture?

Take a mundane voiture, let an Italian designer loose on it and oh baby.

Spend a fucking fortune restoring a mundane motor? I'd like to think that we all fantasise about doing it.

I really like that Vauxhall. Considering ita been restored it looks remarkably not shit. It sold for an insane amount though. The 404 went for a little more than £31k I think, which is a bit of a bargain really seeing as €25k will get you a major project in France these days. I know where I'll be selling mine when the time comes, and it ain't Historics

What's the script with that Rover? Some sort of homebrew effort?

You know what, I stared at that pic for ages trying to find something odd and all I could see was the weirdly shaped number plate on the Jag. Hopeless. I reckon that Rover looks like a great job!

Even more amazing is that its been around like that for nearly a quarter of a century and I can't recall seeing it before....I don't usually approve of such things but that is a huge exception.
