Tasty looking Viva/Magnum estate back in February. post-3066-0-36152100-1397981655_thumb.jpg

 

Tidy straight-6 Sherpa fhc in a Wetherby carpark. Did a bit of a double-take when I saw this, it only got camera time because it's the C!

Corsa parked next to a Merc A-class...what does the A stand for? Could it be "Astra"?

Went out this afternoon for my first trip in Mrs. M'coli's new Kia Picanto - it's well nice, and I even got to drive it.  One of these days I'll get to drive it on my own, and then I'll be able to find where the 1-litre 3-pot's 69-or-so cuddies are to be found - probably somewhere above 5500rpm.  Nevertheless, while a passenger I was able to wield a camera:

Not far along, this regular Victor:

Made it to Otley, and bypassing the town centre lights my shitey senses started tingling.  In a car park, I spotted this Saab 9000 Carlsson, quite nice too.

You might be able to spot the green machine - the Picanto - in the background. Off to the left of the picture, however, was the car setting off the shite radar.

Xhevette takes things right to the top of shitehood.

 

Also, Cannich must be the grimmest and most remote place I've ever been to. My ex's parents lived up near the Mullardoch dam and I had to pass through there to reach the place.

Birmingham spot, somewhere in Wellington Street - this needs to be saved, despite the buggered windscreen, it looked ok from the roadside.

Wetherby Dickensian Christmas Market yesterday, and it brought out a load of dickends indeed. Ripped off for a small and bland hog-roast-in-a-roll to the tune of a fiver, but did enjoy seeing this lovely Jag on steels.

Today I popped out to get my sister's Christmas pressie (4 bottles of Taddy Porter) and this delightful Landcrab was parked not 200 yards from the house.

Edit: there used to be a beige one that went around town, but this is one I've not seen previously. For added shiteyness, I took this picture in the Avenger.

Popped out at lunchtime to the local pharmacy, was a bit of a win seeing this Spacevan Commer PB camper!  I know of another couple in Bristol but this is the only one I've seen so far that's a proper van rather than having a coachbuilt body.

That's a motorsport bodyshell these days...

 

Also, stopped at Lawrence Hill Lidl yesterday to pop into Machine Mart for a hub puller, and spotted this honey.

Isn't serendipity just the best, though? I've been working/had digs in Bristol for just shy of a year: tonight I decided to ride up to the Clifton Suspension Bridge for a gander at it, and see the most fabulous scooter on the way home on the only day in the past year I was likely to see it!

 

Edit: PS, first registered in 1959, but mot check website disnae list Maico...

More Bristol chod, and this will be first post of the last lots:  I am starting an new job next week and no longer reside there during the week.  Some of these were taken in the summer of last year after my landlord/lady were going to bin a tiny Sony camera that fitted nicely in my pocket and I could access it easily whilst on the bike, and some are repeat offenders from more recently.

 

First up is a crazy Barkas in St. Werbs - the bodywork is crazed.
