Shite of SW London and beyond


Recommended Posts

Elan +2 in Brixton? Is it yellow covered with a bit of tree detritus? If it is, I'd lay my money on it being one of the two that are usually parked up on Croxted Road.

 

Is the other one white? I've spotted one around that area.

Been absent for quite a while but to make up for this I have been seeing some shite!

 

Pimlico and the Ibiza that keeps going on and on and on

This was actually rather scabby on the inside - though glorious

The B is scene-d but the Mini is a daily driver

IMG00102-20121201-1520.jpg

 

No idea what this was

IMG00003-20130202-1612.jpg

 

Giffer-owned - this cruises down the Kings Road daily like a HERO

This Alfa looks increasingly battered and has recently picked up about 20 parking tickets without moving. Madness!

Finally a shot of the 1000SEL. Garish but glorious.

1993 called!

P6, an increasingly rare sight

Nice Merc

Looks absurdly modern for a Y-plate

Alfa in Fulham

MUTHA FLIPPA, some top-grade spots there. I dont know which to get most exited about - the scabby roadside lancia, the Y-reg audi (surely one of the oldest left anywhere, seems to have its original plates as well) or the wheels on that Seat Ibiza, which seem to be MEGA rare nowadays, I bet Biqqle wouold love to put them on his.

Although, like any sensible person, I would rather gouge my own eyes out with a rusty teaspoon than live in London, I must say I am insanely jealous of the amount of High Class Chod there is in the capital. Any one of those spots would have me feverishly playing a game of pocket billiards if I saw them down here. Brilliant.

 

Agree that the Lagonda is a Lagonda btw

I was pretty pleased with the Royale...

 

Couple more from the past few months. The BMW shares a stable with Astons of recent and Sixties vintage. The duct-taped Cadillac is regularly driven by an old dear around Fulham, where the Belmont is also a regular (alongside an E-reg Fiat Regata which I've never managed to snap and therefore retains mythical status). The Reliant Kitten was in Hammersmith with its rather eccentric owner.

A bit more cack, mainly from the Earls Court / Primrose Hill area.

 

I have no idea what the green abomination is at base - probably a Yank. The Citroen seems to be an import reg. The Escort was pleasingly povvo spec, the Cortina (a flashback to 1993 if ever there was one) is still going strong, and as for the Micra/Jag convertible, that's quite possibly the worst thing I've seen in my life.

A little more - the green Cortina, this time in daylight; a US-spec Saab we've had before, still with a nasty dent; a very early W124 (assuming it's not a private plate); a Kensington Honda; and, just about visible in a mews dealership, a Fiat 130 Coupe and, a snip at £14k, the saltiest Mehari I've seen.

And a few more. The Volvo estate was really nice - there's a few of these still in use as middle-class chariots. The AC was a little bit special: it's a Greyhound and one of 83 built. The Rolls is in utterly crumbly condition - the owner also has a white saloon version, also with LUV on the numberplate, and equally crusty. Definitely a WINNAH. The Vitesse made my day - clearly enthusiast-owned and in pretty much  flawless condition.

More tat. My highlights were the giffer-owned Daihatsu Charade and the Hyundai Pony which, though a lot younger than what I tend to snap, is now a seriously rare sight. The black Merc in the first photo was a genuine 6.9. We've had the Minor before but I couldn't resist the patina.
