Since I got a smartphone last year (I’m well behind the times, I know) I’ve been doing more spots.  So here’s another spotting thread for your viewing pleasure.  Many of these are already in ‘Lazy Spotters’, but in reality aren’t lazy as I’ve spent a bit of time and effort finding the majority.
 
My manor is a specific corridor of south London (Brixton out to Beckenham area) so most are around here, with some out of town tat thrown in.  Chronology is random, as is the type of spot.  You’ll find the odd modern i.e. post-2000 if I’ve deemed it worthy of a photo.
 
Enough waffle, now the content.

Various lunchtime spots.

GR9 Cortina.  Remove the street furniture and it could be 1992 or whatever.

This was lovely.  Looked original what with the seams showing on the front wings, but I'm sure it isn't.

This was a lazy spot as it was opposite my work

T'was a new one on me too.  Apparently it wasn't sold in Western European markets, but was manufactured in Turkey as well as Brazil I think.

I always love it when you see stuff like this to lower the tone of a largely posh neighbourhood.  This is in snooty West Dulwich.

Multi-shite spot.  This was when I owned the roffle Safrane.

Agreed, there seems a bigger disparity than anywhere else between those keeping up appearances/ flashing the cash and those that don't give a fuck (though may if they wished to have any new car they liked)

Indeed, there's plenty of folk in London who have no choice but to run old stuff. I often knock the place but the diversity, both automative and cultural, helps to keep me here. Lethargy also plays a big part of course!

LoLZ. Exactly what I thought when taking the pic....although I'm sure no one in a shiny new modern dare park near it.

Yep, my lunchtime spotting sessions are generally around there as I walk up from Brixton to Herne Hill and get the train back.  In the summer when work slacks off I'll take longer lunch breaks and go further afield, as I'm running out of stuff to document!

IIRC there was an SL tucked down the side of Loughborough Junction station, behind a corrugated iron gate, and a really interesting looking scrappy the other side of the tracks.

According to the internet it's a booted version of the Fiat Palio, which in turn was based on the Uno chassis with engines from the Punto.
