S A Barrett's Sussex shite spots


Recommended Posts

Hey, check this out you muddy funsters! A shiny new spotted thread 'cause I got sick of the old one, which is here: http://autoshite.com/topic/5861-brighton-spots-2014-omg/

 

 

This rotten Riley was seen back in March. Obviously just dragged out of a bush, and off to the scrappy within a week

1960 Riley One Point Five by barrogance, on Flickr

 

I've driven past this a million times and always meant to spot when I was in my Standard but never got round to it. I think this has gone now, too

Quite appealing in a hopeless sort of way, in Wales

1953 Morris Six MS by barrogance, on Flickr

 

A Volvo, I think, near the Morris

A different Volvo

Serial Celica-owner near me had/has this for a while, been off the road for 20 years but looks mint

Nice basic Consul in central Brighton

Batshit 2cv thing

1985 Citroen 2cv widebody by barrogance, on Flickr

 

By some fluke 75% of the cars filling up here were pre-1990, I think there was a rough MGB and a series Land Rover too plus whatever shit I was in

On my way back from Chester in the BX, a very pretty girl in full '50s garb plus three passengers was giving this the beans. Lovely stuff

A Jaguar

1985 Jaguar XJ6 SIII by barrogance, on Flickr

 

Bit of a headscratcher this one. I think it's based on Mitsubishi Evo running gear. Looks pretty smart I reckon

A Standard in worse nick than mine

Had a hard job catching up with this thing which was being CANED like a bastard

14422618796_bdf7fd00b2_z.jpg

1983 Alfa Romeo Alfasud by barrogance, on Flickr

 

There used to be an early Reliant Rialto here, which was replaced by this thing which has seemingly not moved since. Are these worth anything yet? Reckon it would clean up all right, should I bother knocking?

14422629536_464b3f7f15_z.jpg

1988 VW Polo L by barrogance, on Flickr

 

another Polo, these things have vanished recently

Another Sud, I think this one was due for conversion into a track car, which is a shame as it looked mega clean

GR9 4 EXPORT

1989 Peugeot 505 by barrogance, on Flickr

 

This thing was ridiculously cool. It's a late car that's been converted to early chrome bumpers and looks all the better for it. Parked up in central Brighton and attracting a lot of attention

14748407089_75ca14ffde_z.jpg

1985 Citroen CX Prestige Turbo by barrogance, on Flickr

 

This was bought by my friend's boss for his missus, but I can't find any trace of the reg online, so dunno wtf is going on there. super clean

14776003440_67f9155691_z.jpg

Some VOLVO-bummer had this among the collection of decaying bricks outside his house

The current Ms_B lives in a shite-rich area though can't tell a Triumph from a fuggin' Honda Jazz, so I had to find this thing myself

Well traveled R4

Renault R4 Savane by barrogance, on Flickr

 

 

This is owned by a lad who works in my local garage and has done some work on my Allegro. He also has an MG turbo project thing which is parked a few cars down from this

A normal looking bloke was unloading his kids from this in Asda car park. Looked mega clean

Solid-gold shite Montego in Tesco's car park

15375639869_bd4abdf9aa_z.jpg

Montego Clubman by barrogance, on Flickr

 

This is by far the roughest road-legal vehicle I have ever seen. It's fuggin' incredible, every panel is totally shagged and it's held together with gaffer tape. I am deffo going to Wales for all my future MoTs

Garden of shite in Horsham. This chap was selling a really clean Mk3 Escort recently as seen in the ebay tat thread

Absolutely mint BX was for sale recently in Surrey, and has ended up in Brighton

15556727367_ce0e8086d6_z.jpg

1992 Citroen BX by barrogance, on Flickr

 

tbh I never knew this was even a thing, a Hanomag-badged Merc T2 with different front end

Just-out-of-test BX in Gloucestershire. Have left a note but not heard anything yet, fingers crossed!

15126647544_a4c1b93eea_z.jpg

1994 Citroen BX TZD by barrogance, on Flickr

 

Last one for now. An Imp. You never see these things in the wild anymore do you? Wouldn't mind a crack at one of these though I have completely gone of British cars tbh

15205868384_b90568eef3_z.jpg

1971 Hillman Imp by barrogance, on Flickr

 

I will try and keep this updated if there is the faintest whiff of interest. Cheers!

I got so excited seeing these spots at work that the spods came up to see if I had bypassed the porn filter.... Top spottages and evidence that you may seem to be inhabiting a parallel universe.   Although I note many are in Brighton which probably explains that.  More please!

My dubious mathematic skills suggest that you photographed 1.11% of all Renault 4's left un the UK (according to HML) in those posts.

 

*EDIT* I just noticed that one of them is on a French plate so its actually just 0.74% so not all that impressive really. FFS TRY HARDER!

Lovin' it, proper old fashioned spotting thread with nothing less than 20 years old.  There is a very strong whiff of interest, at least from me, so please carry on.

On a B-plate, this might just be a late chrome bumper one - the plastic bumpers an' ting arrived on a C-plate if I remember rightly.  Hella fogs are the mark of someone who has won at life.

Word up, doucheholes! Found a few more hitherto unpublished snaps on my phone, didn't I

 

A terrible picture of a motorised tin whelk

A better Vauxhall, Prescott

Somewhere between Yorkshire and Sussex, through the window of a Vivaro

Car park of the dreadful pub near my office. Vivaro door left open in my haste to capture this smart Harold. I like an estate version, but not with the 13/60 bonnet

15208792024_4eb6a7236c_z.jpg

1970 Triumph Herald 13/60 by barrogance, on Flickr

 

 

Went to look at this Ami a while back, but it was a little crustier than we were happy with and it ended up selling for much more than it was worth (to us). Dyna had only been in the country two days at this point!

15644667090_edbd69a1c7_z.jpg

1963 Citroen Ami 6 by barrogance, on Flickr

 

Only saw two BXs on my flying visit to France a week or so back, which was a surprise. Really like the basic nature of this one

15683515050_1e71f467dd_z.jpg

Citroen BX D by barrogance, on Flickr

 

I've suddenly got a raging horn for a ZX so it seemed rude not to snap this one. I'd like a very early phase one, three-door in a nice colour ta

15683327698_f868594ed5_z.jpg

1995 Citroen ZX Aura by barrogance, on Flickr

 

Two '60s saloons. The Herald feels positively agricultural after the Ami, absolutely every facet of it is slightly worse. I've gone off British cars in a big way tbh, I dunno how we sustained a motor industry for as long as we did

Herald and Ami by barrogance, on Flickr

 

Nice car park timing somewhere in Kent. Not the Moon discs on the Deux!
