RobT's Spots - 2020 randoms


Recommended Posts

Sensational spots! Uplifting to see the variety of stuff street parked and apparently in use as transport. Love it.

Incidentally there’s a Merc there H881YGC - I had one registered H880VGC. Also an estate.

Wow! Some absolutely incredible spots there. That Avenger/Oxford combo has to be my favourite. It warms the old cockles that such scenes still exist in 2020.

That Saab estate hasn't been parked there that long, less than three years but I suppose being parked under trees won't help how it looks!

Outstanding spots!

The Avenger is amazing. Want.

The R4 F4 van looks like an original UK RHD one as well — another great survivor.  

I used to live about 200 yards from Grove Park: other side of the railway line though.

The exact words I'd use too.  Plus an FU to the upcoming ULEZ extension.  For the ones old enough and running that is.

Saab is weird.  Looks like it's been parked there for donkeys.  It's on a fairly busy road, so I'm surprised no one has trashed it/reported as an eyesore (they'd be RONG obvs).

Another great update. The tatty street-parked Avenger is definitely 'what this place is all about' and the sort of thing that's increasingly difficult to find anywhere. What is going on with the builder's dust sheets over the interiors, though? The R11 and Carlton are also astonishing sights, really. If I saw one of those I'd be happy for the rest of the day.

Some familiar cars there, too - well done for getting the CV8, it always has a cover on when I pass there. Weirdly I found that peppermint Transit on street view recently. I think there's a footpath running right next to the car park its in, but I'm glad somebody else has spotted it so I don't have to.

This is ace. When was the last time you saw something like that?

About 1998, usually with the bumpers semi colour coded but with the paint flaking off.

Im almost getting nostalgic for stick on chrome arches ?

Great to see a Savanna still working for a living too.

There's a window cleaner in Norwich who uses a Toyota Carina II (saloon) as his work vehicle - not been able to get a photo yet though.

Very reassuring to see all that bilge still going. I do like the 21. And everything else. Funnily enough I came across that Sierra estate when I dropped off the 19 with you all that time ago. 

Managed to find a photo of that 'peppermint' Transit from 2012.

I've forgotten, have you come across that other Transit not so far away? X reg in some sort of dirty grey....

Are those massive overriders standard fare for these?

They’re factory — not sure if they were standard on Custom spec or optional or what.

Lazy spot, Xantia wiper blade.  Neither of those will see the road again eh.  Not sure what's under the other cover.
