¡Mierda! - Spanish Shite

Recommended Posts

Well having been into Madrid today there is definitely slightly less about than when I was here in 2015. However, still way more about than most other European capitals these days.

 

And to top it off, amongst the 160 odd photos from today I finally spotted one of these:

Spanish made Dodge 3700 GT. Apparently this one has a diesel conversion too.

They were made by Barrieros. Also made diesel Talbot 180’s.

OK, been here a few weeks and not managed to photograph anything as always on my bike. However, there is a show near me tomorrow, so should get to see some vehicles I'm not that familiar with.

I do not know if you can do this but the form on the following link needs to be filled out by as many classic car owners, in Spain, as possible.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfWCjyVYCi6uZlaj0IoX2rXyd7_gfa0nNkUW__mqqgkYW6w-A/viewform?vc=0&c=0&w=1

I will basically explain what is proposed and why this is important to pass on:

In the link is to a questionnaire maid by the FEVA (Federación Española de Vehículos Antiguos) and is being carried out in relation to the negotiations that on going for the mobility of classic vehicles and their treatment under a proposed law Ley de Cambio Climático y Transición Energética (LCCTE) (Law on Climate Change and Energy Transition).

Around 150 municipalities in Spain, having more than 50,000 inhabitants, will be affected by this law. In the law it could be that classic vehicles will not be permitted to be used. A complete ban.

 FEVA want to defend the the ability to use classic vehicles, They are normally used with low distances each year, therefore, low polluting. All owners, and supporters, are being asked to contribute by filling out the questionnaire. It will be a great help to achieve the  objective of getting classic cars out of any legislation.

You can fill out as many forms as you have vehicles. Please also copy and paste in your WhatsApp groups etc. And  it is important, before filling out the questionnaire, you should  have the documentation and the latest ITV report on hand to see the record of polluting emissions, unless your vehicle is exempt from this test.

I use the word classic but wish to cover vintage and shitters too.

thanks.

^^^ Thanks for that information, but I don't have a shite car here. I will obviously sign any petition type thing they have at the show.

 

Didn't realise it was so serious, although I am aware of the ban of ICE vehicles in parts of Madrid.

This week saw me having to visit my favourite garage, to have 4 new boots put on the car. Whilst there I took some photos with my phone.

Same cars as above.

I think it is the Peugeot 404 by Pininfarina which is easily confused with the Lancia Flaminia coupe also by...Pininfarina. This is a Pug I'm sure.

Given the BMC liks to PF I'm not surprised there was some crossover. The B was however done in house I think - but they must have seen something by PF. Plenty of 'borrowing' in auto companies - when Humber refreshed the Hawk line in about 65 they nicked the roofline silhouette...

It is a Pug. Look at what Wiki says.  They were very expensive. French wiki says just under 7000 were built.

      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.
