Just north of Ballachulish bridge we saw this in a side road, and slowed to get a wing mirror shot - a German registered series 3 Daimler Double-6!

Next morning, I went up to see Sloy dam before making me way back to Yorkshire, and this pulled in just in front of me!

This car was in the 'Rust in peace' section of PC a few years ago IIRC.

Here's some more pictures:
The new avatar, a b&w scan of a colour picture of a Masey Ferguson 35 with a box on the back, taken in late summer/autumn 1992 from inside the farm where I was working at the time.

You mean the Bedford Val right? It could be a Harrington version, but it looks slightly wrong at the front, the best version of these without a doubt is the one with duple viceroy bodywork.

Fruggin' hippies. :roll:

Yep!!!If it was a legionairre, see if they would take a bit of capitalist dosh for it, if its got no interior, worth making into a replice thn isn't it, might be worth tipping off the legionnaire register about this one though! Plus was this in scotland!?m0rris

The Ilkley Jubilee Historic Rally took place on the 11th April, I took a trip out to see some sporting shite.

 

I have some other (larger) photos that were taken prior to these, these are stills from the video that I might get my arse into gear and sticking on the internets.

This is the first of the cars that we'll see again, as they returned from a stage.

Now that the study/exam thing is over, I've had some time to sort out some spots, but being on a campsite near Barnad Castle, I've forgotten the decent memory card reader. :evil:

 

Some spots are just meant to be - I went to the local supermarket and this was in front of me - I had no camera, so thought of taking phone shots. Then I realised I had no wallet, so nipped home for that and the camera:

I really like this!

P1030388.jpg

 

I also went to the Great Yorkshire Show, this was nice:

We were out in Leeds one day in July, and I saw these at the side of the road, I had to stop and take pictures:

Talbot3.jpg

Talbot4.jpg

The owner was working on this, it had the Weber carb added to it for extra oomf. He's not on the internet.

CPTC, take a guess - it'll be one of 2 cars:

Talbot1.jpg

 

Then there's the Austin 1300 estate I see when dog walking sometimes:

Next batch should include some from my campervan travels during the summer.

Those Talbots are just over the road form my Sisters house. I've posted the Alpine on here before I think.

More of the dross that I've seen and not had my decent camera to take a decent piccy with so I've used my phone. In no particular chronological order:

5614739676_80736c415f.jpg

3 door 340 spotted in Harroate in January last year.

5614151939_aebc26ac67.jpg

Giffer-driven Cav in Morrison's last March.

5614737112_978fc98e44.jpg

VW Variant in Gairloch, August last year.

5614155309_6305aebd08.jpg

Senator spotted in Wetherby town square last August.

5614725740_e0f83d346a.jpg

A Donegal scrapyard spot, last May.

5614154489_97c93862f8.jpg

Inherited shite in Matisse Blue spotted in Morrison's carpark last year. They were trying to get all the food and alcohol for an OMGWTF BBQ and their 2 kids in the car. It had been his mum's util she passed away. My ex-colleague had one the same colour when he was a tree surgeon, it was so capable off-road it was nick-named the all-terrain Fiesta.

5614733516_a9b89cae7a.jpg

A garage probably somewhere in Norfolk.

5614733004_02e7617a79.jpg

Reliant Fox spotted on the way home from work last year - it was on eBay a short while after.

5614732516_4d2243119d.jpg

5614148577_ddf8fc8841.jpg

This was in Culmstock, Devon, last year, I'd been down to see the Faither-in-law and had taken a trip along the canal with the dog.

5614723104_077a7fb96e.jpg

Handsome daily driver in Morrison's this February.

5614731872_2daf3943e2.jpg

The Cavalier beside an SD1 3500, last Febuary IIRC. The SD1 was covered in algae, and had seen a good deal of radulla* action from various slugs and snails eating the algae from it.

*these are the little triangular marks left by the mouthparts of such molluscs.

5614145075_2508065605.jpg

5614722644_3364e91625.jpg

Absolutely fucking stonking Panda 750 on Poundland trims in Morrison's about a month ago.

5614143869_e40df5948f.jpg

Early-ish Micra in Harrogate at the start of April.

5614723968_900f6763a3.jpg

Rascal Camper spotted about a month ago.

5625246915_014189a6a1.jpg

This pulled into the Esso as I was going to fetch tonight's curry. It's a 1600HF, the guy's had it about a month. I think it's the first ever time I've seen a Fulvia on the road since I became aware of them (and have harboured a major WANT for one) 20 years ago.

Another rambling update, including some historic spots, i.e., 2009! So let's start with them, these were probably taken in May 2009.

 

304 cabriolet in Morrison's carpark.

5746629013_35ac1583e7.jpg

 

Chav-tastic Fester in a services carpark:

5747014724_b5297ee76c.jpg

Same services, nice Looking Merc:

5747178658_8bc37ab6c3.jpg

What's that behind it? This geezer's living the dream!

5747178890_88bd274039.jpg

5747179250_8136a3d137.jpg

 

On a trip to the Borders in October 2009, I spotted this 305 van in Hawick, I think:

5746455679_ac11cedfcc.jpg

5747004194_cd986fac5c.jpg

Then in Galashiels, this had me enraptured. It's the same one that was on eBay last month, on page 753 or there abouts:

5747006380_2bc5385397.jpg

5747006910_fccfe60e1b.jpg

This was somewhere out near a Reservoir near Dryhope on the A708.

5747005834_2a9cc515e8.jpg

Rough looking Sherpa coupé:

5746456749_5065db368c.jpg

These 2 Sherpas were in Sedbergh:

5747008802_bcc00f05a9.jpg

 

 

February 2010, Inverness Halfords:

5747010520_68d229ec44.jpg

Ancient Samé at Mullardoch dam, looks as if it hasn't moved since the Google streetview shots the previous year!

5747011530_950c8b9149.jpg

 

On the way back from Devon, February 2010:

There never was a better time to revive a spottings thread, good work sir.

I haven't seen an Allegro Estate in the wild for years, but still have the mega horn for an early one. I'll have a chance at one sooner or later hopefully.

I bet that SJ winds itself up something chronic when put in 4WD!

Excellent spotting Mr 'Coli. That AA Escort Van reminds me that I spotted a Bedford Astramax in the RAC yard next to the M6, I saw it a few times until they fitted up some new fencing.

 

I really like the mk2 Cavalier, I would love to buy or at least try one. Got a big soft spot for mk2 Cavaliers and its nice to see you kept your pretty much standard, sadly a lot of them seem to be modified.

Cheers chaps. The next load will be sorted when I'm not on a steam-powered laptop, and should include mk1 BX content.
