Hello. Not really spots or shite but more of series of snaps at a staged event. These were taken over the weekend at Race Retro, a perfect opportunity for me to practice my 'action' shots. Great fun and lots to see. This lot are batch of Rally slags giving it some around the Rally stage.

Thanks for the compliments guys, always good to gain recognition for doing something I enjoy.

Here are a selection of static cars inside the event....

There was a huge Alfa presence, due to the company celebrating their centenary. Great selection of post 60's stuff, as well as the 30's racing cars.

I used to have one of these for a few months in the mid 90's. It never really worked very well, but had very little rust. I sold it to a very small hairy man, who fitted into the car perfectly. I never ever got used to its driving position.


And of course lots to see outside too.

Bizarre - I can only assume it received serious roof damage.

Wow, some aboslutely top stuff there. Not sure what I like most but the Zagato looks very nice...
What was next to the chopped Escort? Fiat coupe of some sort? or a mk3 scrote? Looks interesting whatever it is...

also, if i may be slightly pedantic for a moment, despite the sign-writing on the front of the truck, I think that they were actually sold as Romeos, no 'Alfa' involved....you may want to look that up and double check but i'm pretty sure i'm right....

Cheers Barrett! The Italians have a knack of surprising me by constantly coming up with variations on a name. I suspect that little A12 truck is based on a Alfa saloon of the time.

The red car next to the chopped escort is this.....

A selection of car from the last few weeks, and some more recent ones from a mission in South London. The missus and her friend wanted to go shopping in town, so I dropped them off near hyde park at 12pm, and spent the next few hours shite hunting over the other side of the river - I went to the places I remember that had shite cars when I lived there. When I picked her up promptly at 6, she asked me what I'd been up to. I replied 'the usual'.

Posted Image

I didn't realise these went up as late as this.

Seen and photographed this Gamma before but deserves another view.

Posted Image

And these are the London findings - I made a rule not to bother with the usual type of Londoner classics - amazons, beetles, DS's, camper vans, BL sports cars etc - all worthy of photographing but I was after proper shite. I think I did ok!

When I first saw this I assumed it had been pulled out the vandalised garage, then upon closer inspection noticed it had been fairly recently taxed. I'd imagine the owner must be bearded.

This car has been up this road for over 15 years, I used to walk past it every day.....

Hey, that Fulvia Zagato in the last batch was ours! I bought it in 1997 for the former Mrs P (with my late dad's legacy) and she sold it when we got divorced. It's looking a lot better now than it did then :roll:

Wow, what a great selection! I really should stop being lazy and get out with a camera around my part of London, and hope I can do half as well.More on the Alfa Romeo A12 from the top of the page: the A12 is an updating of the Romeo light commercial introduced in 1954, which was described as an Alfa Romeo Romeo, the second 'Romeo' being the model name (it dates from the same time as the Giulietta, so there's the possibility it was a 'Romeo y Giulietta' naming stunt, also they later added 'Alfa' as part of the model names eg Alfa Romeo Alfa 6 and Alfasud).Unlike Alfa cars, the vans were front wheel drive, using a ZF transaxle. They were fitted either with a version of of the Giulietta's 1.3 twin cam, or a two cylinder, two stroke supercharged diesel.
