My spottings, old and new - Hollywood special


Recommended Posts

I thought it about time I started my own thread. I've been taking mediocre camera phone pictures of old shite since about 2006 or so, therefore lots of these cars may no longer be alive.


Warning, there will be lots of air-cooled VW content, suck it up.


(thread edited to remove dead links - thanks Photobucket)

An overwhelming amount of tat, too much to take in. Particularly like the Panhard, for obvious reasons, but lots of other great stuff here. Just goes to show how much stuff was still knocking about until quite recently.


I think the squashed car is an 80s Subaru

Mitsubishi Shogun?



Definitely a Shogun - Badge on the wing is still visible


Yep, Shogun - although I had to zoom in on the photo to see the badge. I thought the indicator/sidelight was the biggest clue.

No-one fancy the Disco?

Not old but I have a slight fondness for these, most of the MINIs look dumb to me, be the vans are a bit cool.

I'm tempted to start a new thread as all the Photobucket images won't display - thoughts?


Here's a couple from a Yorkshire Dales trip a few years back;

Today I went into town, and walked a longer random route back to the car;

V12! Found outside a classic car garage/storage unit I didn't know was there, a few interesting motors inside but too many people about to take pictures.

What did people who do this to PT Cruisers, do before there were PT Cruisers to do it to?

Loads of other shite found on a walk around the area (it was getting dark so some are a bit grainy)


The SEAT has a lovely Gaffer tape window seal.


There were many, many ovloVs.


The MX5 either had open windows or no windows and the door card hanging off.


The ZX was battered, half on double yellows and hadn't moved in a while.
