My Essex Spots *Updated Sun 25th Jan

Recommended Posts

Think it belongs to the owners of the garden centre, they had another one down the side which looked like a spares car until recently.

 

I've been wanting a snap of that Astra GTE for years! Tried to get a photo maybe 18 months ago, and a bloke came to the front window and stared at me, so I backed off!

 

I know where there's a MK1 Astra GTE rotting down the side of a house as well, more over this side of town.

@AD - I saw another old Astra GTE today, a black B reg but was behind a front garden wall so would require GR12 papping skillz without being too obvious. Its on Manners Way near Oakengrange Drive. Might pap it another day when im feeling more brave.

Nice to see some more Essex tat, I do miss seeing stuff like that as there's nowhere near as much in Kent. I spotted that Capri back in 2009 or 10, it's on my spotted thread, but I think it was OAP owned then and has since gained the RS alloys. Still, good to see it back on the road as it was SORN for a few years. I saw it in Westcliff a few weeks ago.  The white Pony is owned by an old giffer, he's always trundling about in it. 'Shiters with long memories may remember the boxes of 2CV spares Trigger got off freecycle and kindly passed on to me when I had mine, well I never used anything, the boxes sat in my garage for a few years but eventually I donated them to the owners of that 2CV. Hopefully the spares are helping to keep it on the road :)

.

One car I haven't seen for a while that has to be one of the shitest cars in Southend is a brown Toyota Starlet, on a W or X reg I think. I spotted it once in the Aldi/Lidl car park by Priory Park (can never remember which one it is). Rust holes everywhere and covered in mud. Certainly one to look out for.

That Bronzy/Brown Startlet sounds familiar but cant recall seeing it for some time now.

 

I plan to go over Copart at Purdeys Ind Est on Thursday, there is a late 1987 Rover SD1 Vitesse in there along with a 1978 Datsun 120Y and a 1973 P6.

This P6 3500 has been here a year now, not moved @ £6995 and its starting to look worse for wear

LYU 905 is a Lanchester LD10. Has he still got the Mini, Midget and the Austin Princess/Sheerline under the cover?

 

The bloke with the Bond Minicar and Sherpa used to have a Wartburg Tourist under a carport but the last time I went past it had been stripped down to a bare shell and was just sitting on the driveway, so not sure if he's still got it.

 

I've never seen that A60 Cambridge before, but there's a bloke right near my parents house who now has an identical one on his driveway, as well as a Wolseley 1500. I think my collecting habits must be rubbing off on the neighbours!
