¡Mierda! - Spanish Shite

Recommended Posts

Although I live in Spain I will hope that those who visit this sunny place will also participate in by posting what chod they see.

I have used the Spanish word for Shite (well the nearest I know) I did not wish to be too offensive when naming this thread.

I am open for alternatives ideas.

This is an old photo.
The car is an Coal powered SD1. Managed to take a photo just before it was scrapped. The owner called it his tractor. It just kept going, but then owner, being rather old did not know about the WWW and thought the spares were impossible to get. I did not and still not have any room to store it. I certainly do not have any time to restore it. Then there is that great hurdle the wife to convince to my way of thinking. 2 cars are enough.

Photo dated 2012.

Today's banger on the road a 1993 Ford Escort in Ferrari various Reds

 

 

And in case you are interested the C5 from November 2001.

I have an app which gives me the dates. Older cars on the old system of registration only the year the new system like the C5 both year and month, cars from a few years ago I can see the date of registration to within about 5 days.

Today was a visit to the hospital day. Amazingly I was in and out in less than 15 mins. I saw the CX on the way in but I was about on time so could not take a photo. Thankfully It was still there when I came out, and the car was being driven too. The body work looks ruff and the registration is not of the year for the car. The app I use dates this car is registered as August 2006. It obviously has been imported.

The next lot were also taken in the same hospital car park. All three look to be abandoned. It was the wife who spotted the Toyota.

The cars are Yellow Toyota Corolla from 1983 (according to the app) However that would make it a E70 according to WIKI. Where as I feel this is an E50 according to WIKI.  Not another import? Any help there?

Next to that is a VW Passat Hearse. App stated 1998, that seems about right.

The next one is a silver Chevrolet Epica. This is also known as Chevrolet Tosca, Daewoo Tosca and Holden Epica. I did not know they were sold in Spain. The app dates the car as registered in Jan. 2009.

Interesting stuff!! I think this app thing must be a bit wide of the mark though. That Audi 80 is a lot earlier than 1996, and a 1990 Saxo?

My error the Saxo from 1987. The Audi is about right according to WIKI

Wow that Toyota is a beauty, worth decent coin as well I'd say

Next time I am in the same town I will have a closer investigation of the Toyota.  I doubt it it could be rescued once it has been abandoned.

      May I start this off with a short note.
      This post is about how to purchase a Spanish registered car. I have never  done this with the intention of importing a Spanish car into any other country. Having lived in Spain for many years I can assure you that a clerk in an office may just want to make up some sort of regulation which he knows about. Advise is go along with the flow.
      Copies of any documents may have to be in Spanish and you may need photo copies of them. The government offices you are visiting in order to clear the paperwork usually do not copy any of your documents for you. They will know whee there is a machine nearby, usually a newspaper/book suppliers or post office.
      This has been written as a guide and must not be taken as any legal framework.
       
      Lets get down to it-
       
       
      Documents:
      Provided for the vechile:
       
      Vehicle registration certificate(s). Comes in two parts. One is known as Permiso de circulación.
      Front and back:

      Inside:

      The second is Ficha técnica del vehículo.One side:

      The other side:

      These have changed over the years but these are the ones you would more than likely encounter when look at Spanish Shite. ITV inspections are no longer stamped they now add stickers to the document with a fail or pass.
      The windscreen sticker which states the car has passed its annual roadworthy test. Known as I.T.V. (Inspección Técnica de Vehículos).

       
      The sticker colour changes every year. Normally issued for 12 months, but hire cars, taxis and buses plus HGVs are issued for every 6 months. The year end is indicated and the month is removed with a hole punch. No car can be driven on Spanish roads without a valid test. Not even to the test station. The new regulation is that the Spanish can now get a test  done up to one calender month before the end of year of the test cert.
       
       
      To sum up that makes  3 sheets of paper and a little sticker.
