An update of what I've seen over the last couple of weeks:
I've never really heard good things about the Maxi, but there's something about a blue or green one that makes me want to own one. I doubt if I ever will though.
A promo for a Citroen Specialist in Newcastle - they also have a 10 year old Xantia wagon with a huge tower extension thingy.
Very clean example, no doubt recently restored.
I think this was a S version.
No idea whats going on here, and in my eyes far too recent to feature in my hallowed galleries but it is shite, and thats what counts here.
Old wagons are quite popular with the Jewish community in Gateshead, mostly Toyota vans and Volvo's but occasionally you see something more interesting.
Sister to the Talbot Express, Citroen C25 and not imported Peugeot J5.
This made my panda look absolutely massive. pnarr pnarr.
Bizarre. Any ideas who did these conversions? Looks pretty ungainly in my eyes - opportunity missed there by Renault. Again.
Oh yes! I stumbled across this as I thought I'd saw a Sierra Estate - as I went to check out the Sierra, I was disappointed to see it was a later facelift G reg model and ignored it, but then caught hold of this solid honey further up the street. JACKPOT! I suspect it will eventually end up on ebay as most of these 70's Japanese survivors tend to.
Final and personally my favourite out of the batch. Its pretty ropey - but I was delighted to see it. Judging by its overall condition though I think its going to struggle in the future.
A few more spots are here:
