Been trying to get a snap of this for a while, and now success.

Just look at that paint work!

Yes, it's Mold High Street!

Let's hope we do pap each others cars. Do you have a spotted as well?

Holy mother! Another one. Keep an eye on it and if it's ever for sale let me know!

Haha ok, if I catch it for sale yes.

There was a nice well-looked after Volvo 240 near me, I was tempted to knock on Matey's door and ask if he ever wants to sell it to let me know. However, before I had decided if knocking was a good idea or not it went away forever :(

Red MGB Roadster was at one end, the blue cover hides a rubber bumper MGB GT, at the other end.

We spent 2.5 hours swapping the radiator on his mk4 astra, but obviously I failed to take photos or charge him for the part. 

What I  can tell you is that residents are not allowed to fix cars in the garage. 

I know because when we were at the point of no return, some bloke decided to inform us of that fact. 

I explained that sometimes, for some people it's a choice, either shop in Waitrose and plan a 2 week honeymoon in the Maldives but get your dad to lie on his back on a cold concrete floor and pay to repair your car, 

Or, shop at Heron Foods, plan a weekend away to Prestatyn, and pay a main dealer to do your servicing on a 69 reg merc you've funded by lease hire. 

Poor bloke looked confused.

Maybe it's still counted if its a residents car.

To be honest, the space he uses to park his car, does not come with his fiancee's flat. 

When he first moved in he did a daily check of the car park and worked out which spaces were never used. (Assuming that's  because it's on a bus route to the city, and close to cycle paths that some people just don't own a car)  

So if anyone complains, it won't be to him or his flat. 

They are planning to move later in the year to a house, and I've requested that they look for one with space for a garage.

      Driving around all day everyday I get to see a fair amount of old chod on the roads and rusting rammel on driveways. Been meaning to do this thread for some time now, so here’s what I’ve seen over the past few months.

      I had a spotted thread under the same title a few years ago but only had a basic Nokia phone with a terrible camera.  Now I've got a proper camera phone, I thought I'd take up spotting again.
      Here's today's offerings...
       

      Mazda E2200 apparently, I thought initially it was a Hiace.

      Split screen Moggy.

      This place has had various Japanese tin outside over the years.

      Flat tyre and hadn't moved for some time by the look of it.

      Workhorse.

      Not many about nowadays.

      Is T-plate early for these?

       
      I accept that the pics aren't very good, but I don't pretend to be any good at taking photos.
