Another old Pug design still being produced, The Peugeot 405. Now named Khazar 406.

It still has Peugeot badges. Front and rear lights, together with the dash, are different to the 405. Looks like the ride height is elevated.

The Peugeot pickup.  Spotted yesterday in Angola, apparently Chinese based.  Proper 4X4 with low range transfer box etc.  
 

Are you in Angola now? I used to go regularly but not been for a couple of years. I have spotted a very few Chinese made vw santanas kicking about but not much else of note.

Yes I am,  loads of really interesting stuff knocking around on the streets still, especially if you have an interest in commercials.

I love finding Genuine Factory registered AC Cobra's especially in  blue

because one of these is an AC Cobra the other one is an AC Acedes invalid tricycle, can you tell which is which without googling/looking it up? :)

Difficult one with E and F plates, maybe a slightly higher chance of the E plate on a Cobra but I see a lot on F plates! Also, PPD 567E is on the front cover of Classic And Sportscar this month and so am I! 😎

I am just going to show my age again as I remember this when there was talk of ending the MG brand. I had a MG Maestro at the time and the two MG clubs were positive about the news that perhaps AM would continue making a MG B.

Over the years that car has changed hands a number of times. I did not know it was now in Germany.

Some aspects of this car are not so clean as it should have been, the windscreen, hood and rear lights. Awful. still at least it has the period factory built tied  line.

I remember seeing some Middle Eastern students in Liverpool taking selfies next to a tatty 1974 Humber Sceptre parked on Bold Street. I think I can safely assume the students were Iranian.

VW Logus. Vaguely familiar... 🧐

 

The five-door version (Volkswagen Pointer) actually brings me to mild panic on sight. It's like a rupture in the space-time continuum.

Still, I reckon a Logus rebuilt with RS2000 / Cossie running gear would have the Pineapplists foaming at the mouth.

When I see things like that, I do wonder why they went to all the effort of restyling the rear end with all the associated costs for designing and manufacturing new tools for the panels, lights and interior trim, in order to build something that looks substantially worse than the original.

Obviously that was an Escort before getting a hard smack, but that rear quarter window looked awful Vectra-esque before I remembered the Ford Escort looked like that. :D
