Wierdly I saw this and got a wave from the driver a few days ago, I've never seen it before - I wonder if it's new to the area.

 

Have you spotted the blue Marina Estate signed up for the window cleaning company running about?

45. A pair of 2000 Renault Clio Alize

Seen in Morden, South London.
Same colour, same trim level, registered on the same day in the same registration series.

Initially I thought they must be one owner cars, but it turns out they have been passed around a bit and came to their current owner on different dates.

…..Number of owners: 5+

Current owner since Mar 2004

Mileage at last MOT: 46,295

Mileage since previous MOT: 26

Only 1,500 miles covered in the last decade, but still managed to fail MOTs twice for excessive corrosion.

 

Possibly because it only covered 1500 miles in ten years, so the only thing it was good at was rusting.

 

Still, the current owner has hung on to it for over a decade, so he must like it.

Brilliant spots and great attention to detail posting up the DVLA details and No. of owners etc!!

 

Thanks, I like to record as much info as I can on the cars I photograph.  I've been doing this for ages on Flickr, but after the photobucket shitstorm, and with Flickr being sold by Yahoo recently, I thought it would be good to have it all recorded somewhere else too.
