Another batch from last week.

This CX is one of my regulars, and is looking worse for wear these days.

Another regular, I like these pre-facelift W124 estates,especially in this colour. Unlike the CX it's remained pretty mintola over the years. I would actually like one of these but they're no doubt worth much folding in this condition.

Brixton drug dealer barge. Clamped due to no tax, been there a while now but looks good apart from the knackered front bumper.

On a different day I wasn't finding much then wallop!

Proton and JDM something or other. My friendly mechanic in Herne Hill found this beauty for one of his customers. His VW T2 camper keeps breaking so he needed a stop gap. I've expressed an interest of course.

A pair of GF 626s. OK they're boring but I like them and it's my thread, so there.

I'll end this post with a local celeb, Delia the Tranny kitchen.

Top quality stuff! You certainly have an eye for my favourite flavour of crummy old tat.

Great spots Rob, thanks for sharing

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And if it is broke just ignore it, and maybe it'll be sort of OK...?

Couple of things suggest it's not a GTi or GTi Turbo -

1. The bootlid badge
2. Wrong bonnet lid

DVLA confirms the badge is correct - a diesel. First registered August 1989, it would be one of the last saloons to be built as production finished that year (estates carried on until 1991).

Pity the bootlid spoiler's missing.

Can't understand why the owner has fitted it with the T-slot metric wheels and tyres (which are way more expensive, and were specified for the petrol turbos only).

Oh yes, dunno why I thought it was a GTi. The rather long bootlid badge says it all...

It actually looks OK in the pics, but up close there's scratches aplenty and rust bubbling through, the worst being around the sunroof (which in my opinion are a pointless invention). Just somewhere else for rust to form!

Sunroof rust is pretty much terminal for any car, but particularly for a CX. My 635CSi had the same problem.

Fortunately my CX has no sunroof.

These are edited highlights. Some stuff hasn't made the cut, but more to follow tomorrow!

You've been bitten by the spotting bug Rob.

I still maintain that the Spacevan and Sunny is the best spot I've seen in London for some time.
