Kennedy's captures - 1st May - Science

Recommended Posts

As ever a particularly special spot has nudged me into uploading the most recent phone cam collection. More of that at the end though.

 

Went to Camden Market for the first time in a while a few weeks ago. Resulted in a couple of "scene" vans and an excellent Peugeot/Porsche combo that were parked opposite each other.

This lives near my mum. Not sure if I've "spotted" it before though.

A couple from out and about.

Triple JDM y0! surely not a coincidence even if they were in a Tesco car park.

Only a frickin' Montreal out in the wild! :shock:

Is that Porsche near Belsize Park station? That 305 is bloody ace, great find. Must be so rare to see Montreals out on the roads, great spot.

Yeh, I wasn't sure you would be able to beat a 305....and you didn't. Sorry, never been a fan of Montreals, and i've seen more of them on the road then I have 305s.... :lol: ps, Pog, your sig is borked

Ah, well I would have expected that 305 to have been spotted by the management before on one of their bike ride tours of North London. Brammy, yes down the end of a side street near Belsize Park.Don't think I've ever seen a Montreal on the street though.

Just a couple more. This is the place I went to last week to get tyres for the Hillman

Saw this on the way there.

Haven't seen one of these Accords for years! Black plates would indicate an owner who kinda cares about the car even if they are a bit misguided :wink:

Last night a I popped across to the Ace Cafe for some VAG. Hadn't been to one of those meets before and not really my scene but I fancied getting out of the house for a bit. Some non VAG in attendance too.

There was a mint, bone stock Mk1 Golf in the car park. Not even a GTI. Didn't get a photo though. I'd left my memory card at home so walked around carrying my big camera while taking photos with my phone Only felt alot stupid...

There's a red one of those Beetle convertables lives not far from me - posted a pic of it a while ago. Must be some sort of kit?

 

Oh, and when you said you'd popped over to The Ace cafe for some VAG, an entirely different image popped into my head! :lol::oops:

Its been a good month or so for spotting. Partly it must be warmer drier weather but also it means its daylight so much more of the time so the phone cam can cope...

 

A non-car image to start.

These next two were almost opposite each other, seen when I was out taking photos of the Hillman a few weeks ago.

I'm not sure this update will compare with M'Leylands but its been too long since I emptied my phone of sightings, or should that be shite-ings.

Great to see this early Mini still taxed and parked on the street with totally smashed tailight. Must be about 5 years since I first saw it.

This was the mega OMG spot that I dragged the family through a dodgy estate in Euston for.

 

Spotted_0956.jpg

 

Very tidy unmolested 205 shopping at Brent Cross

 

Spotted_0957.jpg

 

Fairly sure I've photographed this giffer spec Astra (with liberal application of gaffer tape) before.

 

Spotted_0958.jpg

 

And this was todays mega spot. Well worth my last minute decision to dash into Sainsburys for fuel. I think I got its good side. As the bloke drove it away I could see most of the rear door bottom on the other side was missing.

 

Spotted_0959.jpg

 

That's the lot!

Well done for some great spots, weird how both the London updates had two Talbot Avengers! Amazing. That Fiat is also great, and I will always love Londons ability to provide some real timewarp sights.

I couldn't believe it when I spotted that Talbot, hence the requirement to drive around the block to get a picture. Fiat was a bizarre spot too.

 

I'm guessing that teh Triumph chassis in the garden was a one time attempt at a kit car or something. Was tempted to knock on the door and find out if they'd sell the Cosmic wheels but they would have been tricky to carry on a bicycle.

 

I also now know the whereabouts of a pukka Mk1 Espace but haven't been past with a photographic device yet...
