My spottings, old and new - Hollywood special

I don't like Mercs. This one was covered in a plethora of dents scratches and other signs of 50 + years of use. I loved it.

I go to Germany a few times a year for work, this time was Hannover - few older cars with the exception of 3A Passats (almost extinct in the UK it seems), MK2 Golfs and lots of Lupos as well as 3B Passats. Saw 3 mint air-cooled VWs, a 62-63 Beetle, a late 60's Karman cabrio and an earlt type 3 notchback. All going the other way while driving unfortunately.

Probably the worst MK2 Golf I saw, there were several minty looking ones that evaded my camera

Those chod dealers look grim, if they were all in a scrapyard it would have some level of excitement as you dont know what gems* you may find, but when its a thinly spread out pate of crud you can imagine the soul crushing that customers may feel when they have to go there.


Germany doesnt have anything like the variety of shagged out cars that somewhere like portugal has, or Croatia. Is that because of their TUV standards naturally culling older cars?

I guess so, if things are old they're generally in good shape. Only saw one car with filler/rust, a modern (by my standards)  Audi.
