Back out on the streets again; the owner of this very tidy Escort is a window cleaner by trade and clearly looks after his ride.

A re-spot but in a slightly better photo.

 

jan803.jpg

 

Haven't seen a SportKa for a while.

 

jan804.jpg

 

Ever seen a booted Accent of this generation? Me either until now.

 

jan801.jpg

 

Quite the early A3.

 

jan805.jpg

 

With spotting radar disengaged, I drove past this and thought "oh, a Fiat Strada"; 800 yards later, I thought "Bloody hell, a Fiat Strada!" and instigated a U-turn.

Glad you did! I'd have definitely backtracked half a mile for that.

Last one for January; a late example of the earliest Wrangler.

 

jan901.jpg

 

February commences with OMGSNOKAOS

 

feb001.jpg

 

Nice steelies on this Envoy.

 

feb003.jpg

 

Nice alloys on this V90 (also, 3-litre).

 

feb002.jpg

 

I've seen this 156 a few times over the last couple of years and assumed it was a bit Barry; turns out it's a GTA (still not sure about that paintjob tho).

 

feb004.jpg

 

A local Sierra enthusiast has recently recommissioned this P100.

Another local Sierra enthusiast has recently purchased this XR4x4.

There's a bit of a February backlog to upload, I must try and keep on top of the updating regularly routine.

 

It all went a bit "Vive la France" to start with; any excuse for a carnival.

 

jan201.jpg

 

Tidy looking ZX

 

jan202.jpg

 

Looking good for a workhorse.

 

jan203.jpg

 

Still hard to spot La séries une Gooners around my way and yet within the space of 24 heures, there was deux.

 

jan205.jpg

jan206.jpg

 

And then it all went a bit Italian.

Not for long tho; Vive la Sverige. This one is a Carlsson.

 

jan207.jpg

 

This has been standing for a while, hopefully the owner will one day find time to hose off the comedy* dirt drawing.

 

jan210.jpg

 

Always a pleasure to see a Rover 400.

 

jan209.jpg

 

I don't recall seeing a Sonata of this vintage until now.

 

jan208.jpg

 

I could waft the fuck out of this.

 

jan212.jpg

jan213.jpg

 

Yes, that is indeed a Cavalier behind it.

A selection from a very busy Walton Bridge Breakfast Club meet; not just any old Focus, it's a Millennium.

 

jan301.jpg

 

Mirafiori in a very fetching shade of beige.

 

jan302.jpg

 

There's approx. seventeen Super Minx floppytops left in the UK and this is the second white example I've seen in the same town in the last 12 months.

 

jan306.jpg

 

Avengers are rare anyplace and anytime. This one was rescued from the scrapman, welded to the max and fitted with a 2-litre Pinto.

 

jan307.jpg

 

"Turnpike Cruiser" is the greatest model name of all time. Yes it is, shut up. Mercury is pretty cool too but y'know, any factory name is cool when it precedes "Turnpike Cruiser".

 

jan305.jpg

 

That name will never be bettered. If a car named "M25 Variable Speed Limit" were to be launched, the press would laugh at it and no-one would buy it (except for a few 'shiters perhaps).

 

A very Autoshite Daimler; brown Sovereign with 2.8 manual powers.

Rounding off the Feb with a couple of Fiat models that are disappearing fast.

 

jan401.jpg

jan402.jpg

 

Early E34 with about 64K on the clock and one owner since 1996.

 

jan403.jpg

 

2.0 GL is an uncommon survivor spec and it's for sale.

 

For twelve bags. Hmmm.

 

I know there's a Blue Oval Tax but a bit excessive here IMO.

 

I am not a businessman.

They look like Federal agents in that Merc. Deffo - one is even covering his face.
