Fake spotter thread

Recommended Posts

Sort of spotted as actually spotted at my mates house!

 

First up he has two Land Rovers on his drive. He got the white one so he wouldn't keep driving the blue one as he liked it too much and was going to sell it, but didn't.

Next guess what's under here?

From the other direction?

You'll be doing well if you get it from these

In one of his garages, this is easier!

This one's not his, just in the garden two doors down & caught my eye

In the other garage, his latest pride & joy. We didn't get to go in it as it pissed with rain. He has promised to bring it to our house in the summer.

 

Nice and shiny!

He wouldn't even open the window for us to look inside!

Great place to keep a ladder!

Also several motor bikes, one of which can be seen in the window reflection above, but I didn't bother with pics of them

I think it looks like a Bristol of some sort....

Not close with that, but it does look like it!

 

Volvo 164?    Porsche 914?

Close ish for the under cover one and Porsche 914 is the correct answer for the blue one in the garage.

 

Volvo 164 or 144

As above, close guess.

I also found a few more spots I'd forgotten about on my phone

 

In Brighton so it's probably already on SA Barrat's spotted thread, but oh well!

Those Crown Taxis enjoyed quite a long production run. The one in your photos seems to have been imported direct from Japanese taxi service. Not sure it's been restored as such, since Japanese taxi drivers are fastidious about keeping their vehicles in good order. Some of them were fitted with motorised passenger doors which could be operated remotely by the cabbie.

Crown Taxis are/were also in service in Hong Kong and Singapore. I certainly remember them being at work in 2008 in Singapore.
