RobT's Spots - 2020 randoms


Recommended Posts

Since I got a smartphone last year (I’m well behind the times, I know) I’ve been doing more spots. So here’s another spotting thread for your viewing pleasure. Many of these are already in ‘Lazy Spotters’, but in reality aren’t lazy as I’ve spent a bit of time and effort finding the majority.

 

My manor is a specific corridor of south London (Brixton out to Beckenham area) so most are around here, with some out of town tat thrown in. Chronology is random, as is the type of spot. You’ll find the odd modern i.e. post-2000 if I’ve deemed it worthy of a photo.

 

Enough waffle, now the content.

 

Garden chod.

GR9 Cortina. Remove the street furniture and it could be 1992 or whatever.

This was lovely. Looked original what with the seams showing on the front wings, but I'm sure it isn't.

Out of town spots.

A spring tide plus wob form a winning combination.

I need to accumulate foreign spots, I've only got a few so far.

 

Autobianchi A112 in Montepulciano, Italy.

More local spots.

 

Matra Murena.  Now gone sadly, but hopefully to someone who will fix and use it.

740, Caribbean style.  I've seen this on the move and it runs like an absolute bag of shit, massively lumpy idle and farting exhaust!

T'was a new one on me too.  Apparently it wasn't sold in Western European markets, but was manufactured in Turkey as well as Brazil I think.

I always love it when you see stuff like this to lower the tone of a largely posh neighbourhood.  This is in snooty West Dulwich.

Multi-shite spot.  This was when I owned the roffle Safrane.

Indeed, there's plenty of folk in London who have no choice but to run old stuff. I often knock the place but the diversity, both automative and cultural, helps to keep me here. Lethargy also plays a big part of course!

 

tu te gares comme une chatte

LoLZ. Exactly what I thought when taking the pic....although I'm sure no one in a shiny new modern dare park near it.

Some of those photo's looked like Herne Hill and surrounds? When I lived in Camberwell, the roads around Loughborough Junction were teeming with shite

 

Yep, my lunchtime spotting sessions are generally around there as I walk up from Brixton to Herne Hill and get the train back.  In the summer when work slacks off I'll take longer lunch breaks and go further afield, as I'm running out of stuff to document!

IIRC there was an SL tucked down the side of Loughborough Junction station, behind a corrugated iron gate, and a really interesting looking scrappy the other side of the tracks.
