Thought I'd better get in on this spotting lark as all the cool kids are doing it. Trouble is, I've either seen bugger all, or not had a camera with me :roll:

Well here's a few to start off with. I'm trying to get a snap of a tidy Peugeot 505 saloon in Hull which is nice because it's quite a basic one.

Here's a very faded Mk2 Transit that looks to be still giving sterling service

A particularly shitey Carina, most of the ones I see are tidy, old people transport

Down-at-heel 323

Not shite this, but a nice DS outside a tyre fitting spot in France. We'd just had a blow-out on the Autoroute and gone limping to the nearest town trying to find correct size tyres. I got to the airport 20 minutes before my flight but this was some consolation!

And I was particularly taken with this gorgeus Dutch R18 I saw at Harrogate earlier this year and had to be dragged away from it in the end!!

Rather nice Laurel

Not sure if this counts as it was at a show but worth seeing anyway. It was for sale and really tidy with lovely squashy looking seats :P

The early Alpine is a very rare sight indeed these days, especially in 'pukey terracotta'(the colour alone makes it shite-worthy).Haven't seen a roadworthy one of these since...er...well, for a long time :wink:How much were they asking for it??

Am I imagining it, or is that DS two different colours? Seems odd for such a well kept one.

No looks like two different colours to me! Also looks to have a patch riveted on under the front bumper unless my eyes deceive me?

That C32 Laurel turned up at JAE in 2004. The owner was bemused by the high volume of new cars at the show and was never seen again!

Tasteless NI plates, debadging and dubious alloys. Ticks about half of the Barryboys boxes then

What are those wheels? I'm fairly certain they're the stock wheels for some car and I'll be buggered if I could remember what they are.
