  1. 1977 Renault 5 GTL Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr 1981 Honda Civic 5A Auto. by bramm77, on Flickr 1980s Talbot Tagora SX Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr 1985. by bramm77, on Flickr 1982 Suzuki Alto FX. by bramm77, on Flickr Rover, meet Ronda by bramm77, on Flickr 1983 Datsun Stanza 1.6 GL Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr Probably best not to include cars not owned by a member on here, I think show cars would be fine however...
  2. My dads last ever car is still alive in the village next to the one I live in, but it has only been taxed for six months, until the start of March next year, which is a bit worrying, I may have to go and enquire... is it a good idea? The Legacy it replaced only lasted until 2004, no doubt rusted away in the Highlands. The Sierra, which no one remembers the numberplate of, probably did no better than 2000, we did see it on the odd occasion for a few years when we visited my Gran, but it did vanish rather quickly.
  3. I am fairly unfamilar with the Brighton area, but there is a shoddy Vitesse near/in Hanover and a utterly crap looking Herald near by, one of the roughest cars I have EVER seen. There is also a crusty early 80s Mustang in Hove, but I am unsure as to if it's a resident, or was merely a visitor. Brighton is good for spotting though, I saw that red Carlton a few weeks ago too!
  4. What the! How has this evaded me?! I have never seen this car before, although there is a VW Santana I need to track down, as well as a rather hilariously 80s giffer spec Triumph 2000. Looks like Chineham shopping centre, awesome find!
  5. Oh dear, now Barretts gone and said it... But no, in all seriousness, this is a fantastic spot Trigger, I couldn't believe it when I first saw photos of it, and I still can't, can anyone even remember seeing a non sporting facelifted model recently either?! Even for Fiats, they survive terribly, in everyday state.
  6. Hello again, welcome to the latest installement of spots, from all around London/Hampshire/Surrey. 1989 Isuzu Piazza 2.0 Turbo Coupe. by bramm77, on Flickr Mint Piazza was a shock spot, looks insanely clean. 1997 Ford Festiva 1.3 Trio Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr Festiva, most likely from Australia. 1982 Ford Fiesta 1.1 L Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr OAPriffic Fiesta. 1993 Grumman LLV 2.5 Van. by bramm77, on Flickr 1992 Aeromate UMC 2.75 Step Van. by bramm77, on Flickr Insane pair of imports in South London, clearly someone likes their walkthroughs. 1987 Fiat Uno 60 S Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr 1990 Rover Metro 1.1 L Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr Mega early Rover Metro, I can't even remember the last time I had seen one on a G plate. 1987 Suzuki Alto GLA Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr Tiny old lady owns this gem, and she doesn't drive it slowly either! 1985 Austin Maestro 1.3 HLE Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr 'Nother day, 'nother 'Stro. 1991 SEAT Marbella Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr Amazing that someone approved the use of bullbars on these, pure insanity. 1986 Nissan Cherry 1.3 Spirit GS Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr Grimey Cherry, yum. 1985. by bramm77, on Flickr Couldn't resist this shot of the cars 'curves'. Literally mint. 1986 Ford Orion 1.6 Ghia Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr 1983 Datsun Stanza 1.6 GL Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr Nearly missed this photo thanks to inconsiderate drivers on my side of the road driving towards my cameras viewpoint. 1997 Lada Niva Cossack 1.7i 4x4. by bramm77, on Flickr Late Niva, with the hideous plastic cladding, which was apparently put on to lure buyers in. 1989 Rover 827SI Automatic Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr Rover 800 buried at a dumb angle! 1974 Ford Capri II 1600 GT Coupe. by bramm77, on Flickr Lush local Capri II I have been after FOREVER. 1975 Volvo 264 GL Automatic Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr Owner of this apparently has a 262c, but it wasn't there! Damn. 1965 Ford Cortina 1.2 Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr Parked up since '97. by bramm77, on Flickr A foreign stranger. by bramm77, on Flickr Utterly bizarre looking things, weird proportions and Citroen wheels... 1980 Datsun 140J Violet MKIII Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr This one shocked me. 1984 Citroen Visa 11RE Convertible. by bramm77, on Flickr Looking good for a car off the road since 1990? Yep.... Crunchy. by bramm77, on Flickr ...ah. 1972 Range Rover 3.5 V8 4x4. by bramm77, on Flickr Surely worth more than this sad fate. 1989 Fiat Uno Breeze. by bramm77, on Flickr These are buff cars. 1991 Renault 21 2.0 GTX Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr 1986 Nissan Prairie SGL. by bramm77, on Flickr 155V6 will know this one. 1990 Honda Integra 1.5 LX Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr Mint Integra, lovely. 1985 Austin Metro City X. by bramm77, on Flickr 1990 Nissan Bluebird 2.0 GL Estate. by bramm77, on Flickr 1986 Ford Escort 1.6i Cabriolet. by bramm77, on Flickr Utterly shagged. And this updates best spot, in my opinion.... 1977 Colt Galant 2000 GTO Coupe. by bramm77, on Flickr Blooooooooooooooody lovely! Hope you enjoyed them!
  7. I find it genuinely worrying there is people like that out there. I think the only thing he's ever done right was to give himself some apt username/alias. Also, Napalm Death, Doom Metal? Yeh, right. Definitely known for their incredibly slow tempo.
  8. This wouldn't be the garage with loads of 2CVs and an Ami outside it, would it? Definitely saw that from the roadside yesterday! There is also a few BXs laid up on a road near Lincoln, I may be able to find out more details when I remember for certain where it is. Quality purchase though DW, that is a superb piece of shite. Like other members, I can't remember when I last saw a MKI Estate, how many are left?
  9. 1987 Fiat Panda 1000 CL Solar. by bramm77, on Flickr Here is another unusual Panda SE, this being known as the Polar. I belive quite a few Fiats at the time were sold with this name bolted on, I think the full length sunroof came as standard, the black tape however, did not. There is two left on the road, including this one. Dealer editions are often a bit weirder, I came across a Bluebird Flair yesterday, it looked a bit... normal. And here's another: Speedwell Special.... by bramm77, on Flickr This was on the side of an Uno, but does anyone remember the Uno Breeze? Quite possibly the best looking Uno ever made, and I think it was the only MKI model with body coloured bumpers?
  10. Just got back from holiday in Lincolnshire, it was lovely! Attended the BL day, of course, a shame I didn't see anyone around, apart from Darren (reallyloud), I myself was pretty easy to spot.... Tell you what, it's seriously difficult to shite spot where I was, there is barely anything elderly still in use, although the stuff I did see tended to be pretty good. Surprisingly, we went to Amersham today on a slight detour, and I was shocked at how much was still in use, saw so much shite on the roads, we even got passed by a Fuego going in the opposite direction, that was a real WTF moment. Now to catch up with the forum....
  11. Going to Worthing for a few days and finding a Colt GTO a few doors down, whaaaaaaaat!
  12. Probably. It was 104.9 last September. The other day, I found a perfectly preserved reciept from 1996, 35 litres of Premium Unleaded, and it cost £19 odd. Depressing.
  13. Weird, that Piazza is around 15-20 miles away from an identical one! Which could be the one you're thinking of Wat...?
  14. Went to a work thing last night, and drank Westons Perry, which is quite a strong cider, and suffice to say, after three, I was feeling it. Feeling it so much that I passed out in bed at 11. And I have work in a few hours, retail on a Sunday is hell on earth. On a plus side though, I did drunkenly spot (without my camera) the recently semi restored Stagecoach DAF 2300 Wrecker, which I hadn't seen for a year.
  15. That is utterly superb, seriously. You have to give these old blokes kudos though, no one can keep a car in better shape than they can. It is weird though, you often stumble across proper battered OAP cars, it is getting harder to see gems like this one. Bet the Talbot seller who sold him that didn't see it lasting 30 years...
  16. It would have been impossible, and I have mentioned it so many times, but my Gran had one of these for years, and it failed an MOT and was then scrapped, I loved that car. Might see if there is any actual photos of it about, that would be nice. But it was basically this, bar the LHD. It was actually a rare car when it was scrapped too, even worse!
  17. I had a nice chat with an elderly man yesterday, about his 1981 Honda Civic. He has owned it for 20 years and doesn't ever want to sell it, it belonged to his mum before he inherited it. He also said it had never broken down, and the only issue he has with it is rust, along with proclaiming his disliking for new cars, because of the electronics. What a great guy!
  18. Lol, that white Metro Clubman is another one of my photos someone has taken off of Flickr (read, printscreened), and done some awful MS Paint registration blanking!
  19. Here we go, some more to keep you lot satisified! I recently got a new camera, a Canon Ixus 117. I quite like it. 1986 Fiat Uno 45 S Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr 1988 Volvo 340 1.7 GL Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr 1983 Austin miniMetro 1.3 L Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr 1984 BMW 320i Automatic Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr 1990 Proton 1.5 Pulse Aeroback. by bramm77, on Flickr 1984 Volvo 240 DL Estate. by bramm77, on Flickr 1978 Morris Marina 1.3 SDL Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr 1985 Toyota Starlet GL Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr 1982 Ford Cortina 2.3 Ghia Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr Really sun faded. 1994 Rover Maestro 2.0 Clubman D. by bramm77, on Flickr 1984 Renault 5 1.4 Automatic Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr Really rotten. (Probably) 1990 Nissan Sunny 1.8 ZX Coupe. by bramm77, on Flickr Lairy Sunny Coupe, looked like a real sports car. 1970 Ford Cortina 1.3 Estate. by bramm77, on Flickr Really quite rotten. 1987 Audi 200 Quattro Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr 1984 Volkswagen Passat 2.0 GL5 Estate. by bramm77, on Flickr Really not scene'd. 1984 Honda Accord 4AX Automatic Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr 1986 Honda Prelude 1.8 EX Coupe. by bramm77, on Flickr 1989/90 Ford Escort Combi Popular. by bramm77, on Flickr 1989 MG Montego 2.0 EFi Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr 1975 BMW 3.0 CSA Automatic Coupe. by bramm77, on Flickr 1968 Morris 1100 ADO16. by bramm77, on Flickr 1990 Austin Metro GT-A Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr 1970s Renault 12 Estate. by bramm77, on Flickr 1977 Renault 5 GTL Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr 1985 Nissan Sunny B11 1.5 Maxima Coupe. by bramm77, on Flickr THERE YOU GO.
  20. Sadly no, but there was also an 80s Mercedes SL next to it, and it's currently not on the road, again with the whole numberplate issue, it's difficult to tell what the story is!
  21. Good news chaps, I did indeed stumble upon a Tagora today, and it was an SX too. Owner seems to have put a fake numberplate on it however, which seems a little confusing...
  22. Just found a Tagora on streetview, fairly local too! Going there tomorrow, there appears to be a lot of stuff nearby too, lets hope this pays off...
  23. Your fault? So that would be using her word as the sole truth, I presume, against what two other people say? Excellent, good to see logic playing its course in customer services, yet again. Also, if you have a copy of the original policy agreement, it should tell you what the excess is, I believe they cannot make it higher without telling you? Not that I know, I still get the bus, but it surely that must be how it is?
  24. I am getting annoyed with how often this keeps happening, seeing something really rare/interesting whilst out and about, but finding it is under a rather secure car cover. Last time it was Simca 1100, this time it was either a Lancia 2000 or a Flavia Berlina. I got a photo of the mudflap however.
  25. Good bump chaps, I shall scan in some more stuff either today or tomorrow! I have a healthy amount of Street Machine magazines to choose from. That MM Van was at Wheels Day as well, but there was about a million people crowded around it, making a photo impossible. Neat use of Allegro indicators.
