RobT's Spots - 2020 randoms


Recommended Posts

Very impressed with the variety you are seeing Rob.  You're very persistent or in a very good area.

 

It's a bit of both. Inner London boroughs are the sweet spot due to concentration of housing. There's always something to see. Where I live there's plenty of flats with garage blocks, so I'm sure I'm missing out on loads of giffer owned gems that are tucked away!

Wow I am glad that Sierra is still going. The Amazon was covered with a tarp when I saw it a few years back.

There was another MK1 quite close to that Sierra but it got written off a year or so back.

 

Managed to work out that Fiesta van numberplate back then too, its A547DMX and has been sat there since 1997.

MOAR BILGE.  In random order of spottage.

 

xtriple's south London brethren.

This W123 is owned by a local Lovejoy, it's often loaded up with 'antique' tat.

Gopping transit.  The Supercinq in the background is currently on eBay.  It's one of my regulars so I hope it goes to a good home.

Despite the wobbed arch this was smart.

If I ever have a Fiat 127 it'd be this colour with those wheels.  Lovely.

Noctural spot in Streatham.  One of those mouth agape moments as I wasn't in spotting mode.

This was interesting.  A quick google showed it to be a Coleman-Milne Granada Minster with a 10" stretch.  Must have been a ministerial car or something back in the day.  There was no security on it, so good luck.

This pictorial delight is opposite Camberwell Old Cemetary.  It's slightly off my patch so I've never seen them before, but there's photos on Flickr.  It's still a butchers shop and the owner is a right character as you'd expect really!

Is there somewhere nearby where one can buy a carrot?

The roof boxes on that Lovejoy Merc a few posts back.  Weren't they quite a rare option for the W123 and quite sought after by Merc lickers?  I have a memory that you could get a matching fitted luggage set for the boot too, like you could for a Granada.

Another small haul, this time Brixton/Stockwell area a few weeks back.

This is a TR8 Grinnall conversion apparently, and belongs to Joanna Lumley's husband.

The location is also notable for being Albert Square, SW8.  Number 14 is at the end of this photo on the right.  Well it's notable for me anyway as that's where Roger Moore lived until he was 18.  Gawd bless him.

W123s are still fairly commonplace in London, but here's a couple anyway.  Most I see are pez (no doubt because export m8), but the beige one is diz.

Sorry to be a month or so late, but the Rivoli Rover has been there for yonks. The tarp is a fairly recent addition. Prior to that it had a for sale sticker in the window asking an improbable amount, like 600 quid or something.

 

I saw (and photographed) the beige Sierra in Downham before Christmas last year.

Some cold weather spots, mostly in the Nunhead/Peckham Rye area.

 

Early FX4.  There were four other black cabs parked nearby, this one being the oldest and most interesting.

Lazy spots.

This Capri has grim placca trimz, but is tidy otherwise.  Used daily as I often see it on the commuter run.

Tobacco leaf (?) sherpa.
