Sadly the last day of a lovely week in Fuerteventura, if you haven't visited the island I recommend you do, lovely weather/food/people and a really laid back pace of life.


But of course, of far more importance to us is the level of chod which, since I came three years ago had diminished slightly as all the new roads their building seem to be encouraging them to buy newer stuff but still plenty to peruse.

I will add pics when I'm home as I'm waiting for the shuttle bus but just one or two to whet the appetite.IMG_20180613_175035093_BURST000_COVER_TOP.jpg IMG_20180613_174948459.jpg IMG_20180613_165910976_BURST000_COVER_TOP.jpg

Saw a couple out here last time as well, in various states of repair. I've seen one in the UK on German plates but that was mint. I saw a lovely mk1 sprinter earlier, it was showroom fresh also on German plates. Looked lovely.

I was there in May and agree the tat level has dropped a bit, though there's still some good spots to be had. I put some spots from 4 years ago on here http://autoshite.com...ite-from-spain/ starting about halfway down page 1. Didn't take so many this year, will have to check my phone!

I was in Lanzarote last year, and there was a disappointing lack of interesting chod, apart from a BMW 635CSi with anachronistic wheels on someone's driveway, and a nicely weathered lemon yellow Beetle.

 

Madeira, on the other hand, has a healthy proper classic car scene, plus some decent random chod to be seen too.

So after a dismal effort to update this, here's my snaps, I attached one of my dog because he actually posed for that after entering a mud bath. The picture of the Speedo is from my hire car, the only thing I liked about it was the old style Renault 9 gearbox symbol to tell you to change up, everything else about it was shit, Renault Captur, AVOID.

Some utter shite like the seat Panda type thing but to be fair it did run and moved about everyday but as said above there's a bit of money coming into the island now and it's starting to show in the quality of cars.

There was a mint little Nova/Corsa A buzzing about but no snaps sadly and the usual selection of SEAT estates that weren't sold here, only in VW guise.

Also every caddy or seat equivalent out there had glass rear windows, I didn't see one without them. Loads of converted vans into campers as well, I think it's a popular place for surfers most likely bumming it over the summer as most of the bar type jobs are taken by the locals. The campers seem to be tolerated a lot more out there than over here, in fact everything seemed to be tolerated more, a really nice laid back vibe.
