An IWL SR59 Berlin, more show than go:

Posted Image

A 1985 Daihatsu Charade, all of these are Daimatic it seems... careful older owners I guess...

Posted Image

A 1973 Ami Break 'édition multi couleurs'

Posted Image

A 1973 Opel Admiral

Posted Image

Posted Image

A 1964 Duett I thought I had spotted before, turns out it's another grey one...

Posted Image

A 1978 Ford F150

Posted Image

Posted Image

Thought it was a big skip, turns out to be a 1976 GMC Pickup

Posted Image

A 1982 Transit with 4x4 badge registered as a 'Ford VVS', I guess that's the firm that did the conversion?

Posted Image

Posted Image

And a lovely scruffy 1974 GS

That green Lancer is nice. Early one maybe?The Admiral is quite a beast, styling not quite as elegant as Rekord/Commodore maybe but still rather handsome.F150 looks spot-on in that colour scheme. Suit my house improvement works nicely.

The home of one previous owner Japanese cars:

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

And a couple of modern Toyotas

The Lancer was first registered in june 1975, so that makes it one of the earliest sold here. I spotted the fab F150 several times on the move, think it's indeed a builders' car.

What's wrong with the white GS? - in the UK it would be regarded as pretty near mint!Have the Amsterdam authorities given up on that proposal to ban or heavily tax pre 1992 cars, Michiel?

Long time since the last update, I guess the flow of imports has stopped a bit, except for the smelly and rusty Merc diesel 200s that give classic cars a bad name. Well, not all rusty, but the nice ones will be in a year - people buy them for 3 to 8 grand (really!) for 'cheap' motoring and then let them rot to hell in a few years.

1974 204:

1985 Polo Van & 1984 626 automatic:

Lovely 1970 VolksWorkhorse:

Gorgeous 1974 504 coupe:

One for Hirst? 1975 Ford 'Granada US' according to our dvla:

And to top it all off, a 1980 Manta auto on lpg, with some er, accessories:

I guess the owner works either in the university or the associated hospital, I see it most days now. :lol:

Cheers! We had a gig with blood red shoes in Bardens Boudoir (iirc) and with another band we played with cat on form at The Garage in London a few years before that; guy in my (now dormant) band had contacts with a lot of UK bands.

Nice coincidence! Can't say I have any of their work at home... but I did enjoy them all live - although the adventure of playing abroad did cloud my judgement somewhat probably!

pbottomley, re the Schoolbank camper - a bank is in this case a bench, it's promoting a website where you can look for people you went to school with, although your explanation is more fun!

Short update with a 1976 Viva that was once yellow:

And some 1988 Armbruster/Stageway Cadillac DeVille Limoshite, FWD V8.

I’ve never seen a stretched Deville in the flesh! Pretty much shite all round even before someone put the effort in to give it a few extra bonus doors.
