Lazy spotters thread

If you have a spare hour or two, I wholeheartedly recommend a perusal of this guy's flickr photostream. He gets around a bit and spends a fair amount of time in unlikely countries such as the Lebanon. That's right, the LEBANON.

 

The old 'shite over there is plentiful and quite spectacular.

I reckon these are weapons grade, even the name is shite, I mean, what social circle do you have to be in to want to tell your mates you drive a 'Cam-Pro1.6 Gen2', the name is worse than the car.

 

I thought a gentoo was a type of penguin.

 

Turns out the car looks a bit like a series 1 Renault Megane.

Ha ha, I never thought of that. I assumed that some marketing bod thought it might put people in mind of Evo 2, as in Mitsubishi.

I don't think it's too bad a looking car, but there's something I can't put my finger on that shouts out 'I don't care what I drive'.

Agreed, some of the stuff is mind blowing.

Nearly creamed my load when this wonderful Monty nipped in ahead of me at a junction yesterday.

 

It was in really good condition. Pinstripe was missing from the offside rear quarter panel, but otherwise it seemed in very good condition.

 

I followed it as long as I could. Giffer pilot naturally. 8863d5808939f577b3f9f1949239896d.jpg9e01638a387b2a971ba3c69748ede0b2.jpg

Theres a few of them round here getting used as taxi's. Christ knows how they keep them running if parts availability is anything like it was for my mates Savvy.

You never see one of these in a driveway these days, let alone two. Early A99 behind too. attachicon.gifIMG_20190208_114158.jpg

 

Wonderful house - check those windows and decor!    Spoiled by that horrible wheeled monstrosity in the front garden.  

 

Never mind, there are two Westies to block the view of that bin.....

The garage in my small village has a small collection of festering chod outside. It was ever thus; I think they’re customer’s cars that have been given up on.

 

Anyway, I must be getting older and more masochistic, because there was a whole cavalcade of shit there this afternoon. The 306 is of particular interest because purple and in VGC.

 

It seemed to be full of car parts so might now be owned by the garage. e88033ab30d8fc7035e9cbe8ceffcdb5.jpg

Here’s a few I’ve seen over the past few months. post-25454-0-20183500-1550343086_thumb.png

This was parked outside a garage a few months ago. Haven’t seen it since so it’s probably been scrapped now.

These are really rare. You don’t really notice because they’re so anonymous looking but these are the only two I’ve ever seen. Nothing compared to this thoughpost-25454-0-30034000-1550343477_thumb.png

I’ve never seen another of these. Never even seen one for sale. post-25454-0-43564100-1550343591_thumb.pngpost-25454-0-22552000-1550343650_thumb.pngpost-25454-0-37121000-1550343717_thumb.pngpost-25454-0-25067200-1550343805_thumb.png

Fairly obvious where this is headed. Shame but it looks rough and what sane person would want itpost-25454-0-50155000-1550343963_thumb.pngpost-25454-0-16416000-1550344017_thumb.png

I quite like these Hondas. This is minepost-25454-0-71480700-1550344150_thumb.png

If the Citroen C15 above isn't enough yet, how about this beautiful* C15 "Romahome" (what a name) I've spotted in someones driveway today?
