Me encanta tu coche francés, ¿cuántos euros te gustaría? :D

can i ask why do the spanish put a upside down question mark at the beginning of questions?


It will not be for sale and if it was you will have huge trouble importing it now The B word has happened.

To answer your question about marks.

They  can act like the word "do". You know how in English we say, Do you want to go to the market?" Well, there really isn't a "do" for Spanish.

"Do you want to go to the market?" ---- "¿Quieres ir a la mercado?"

"I want to go to the office!" ---- "¡Quiero ir a la oficina!"

Only ever seen one of these in the wild... And that was in France... In the middle of an overgrown field

A surprising number of these are still on the road in Spain.

Made in Spain, under licence, by FASA

Bit pee'd off as I have not seen too many old cars (by that I mean over 20 years old) in these here parts.

I was looking forward to the local car meet up next week on the first Sunday of the month. Turns out its on the last Sunday of the month (ie today). Bollocks.

This one is complicated.

A lorry with a Renault badge, In the UK often seen as a Dodge. But Renault purchased the brand when Chrysler sold the UK plants. This truck was made in Spain by the company Barreiros.  That comapny has a bit of a chequered ownership. The made a number of vehicles under licnce WiKI. So is it a Dodge, Renault, Or A Barreiros?

My app dates the registration as being 1986. This old classic is still in service. Even if the tank in the rear leaks like a sieve. Look under the vehicle in the front view.

Another oddity A Ford Explorer. My app says the registration is from 1992. Second year of production.

The car was hand painted in a lot of places. The bodywork has many deformations. The car was unoccupied at time of photos. When I walked passed the driver was trying to start it. That took about 5 attempts.

      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-
      Provided for the vechile:
      Vehicle registration certificate(s). Comes in two parts. One is known as Permiso de circulación.
      Front and back:


      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.
