5516732835_b2ccd6e1f4_z.jpg

1990s FSO Polonez Caro 1.6 GLE Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr

What better way to start! Looks like it has been left to rot now, although I guess the people living in the house crossed the 'border' in it.

5518592398_258e175a41_z.jpg

1989 Vauxhall Cavalier 1.6 L Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

Shagged Cavalier still in use.

5526450877_21cddc4246_z.jpg

1983 Citroen GSA X1 Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr

A Norwegien plated GSA. In London. Parked at Homebase. Right.

5529250534_3c4a576f17_z.jpg

1990s Suzuki Swift 1.3 Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

One of those easy to forget about cars, and yet another foreign plated oddity.

Oh and it was near Wandsworth Wat! Have you seen it before?

 

I have, several times. Fellow Amazoniste Paul H lives in Tooting and I've driven \ been driven past it at night several times. It's parked in front of a fence in a housing block, and I've never seen it in the day. Looks rough as a bear's arse, and in the same location it was when I saw it.

Hey Bramster.

So this chod really does exist outside the eBay thread?!

SRSLY A1 spottings, if I may say the same as everyone else... quantity AND QUALITY.

I also never go outside sans camera: "Car key- yes, camera- yes, wallet- sometimes, phone- nah." I feel naked without it. But I'm lucky to pap more than one or two a week; North Yorkshire is no Chiang Mai. Hampshire looks to be in another league!

Keep up the good work :)

Here is my way of trying to restore the shite balance in this place, you may have seen some before, but here you go, here is a selection of my recent spots:

5591120609_c3da808966_z.jpg

1985 Toyota Space Cruiser 2.0 Automatic MPV. by bramm77, on Flickr

The more two tone and gold a Japanese car gets, the better, in my opinion.

5592005847_c9c48a2baa_z.jpg

1988 Mazda 121 1.3 LX Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr

Rarely seen 121, although since taking a photo of this one, I have seen three others.

5598725156_c041044541_z.jpg

1985 Ford Escort XR3i 1.6 Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr

5600206338_ac431f8fdc_z.jpg

1973 Volkswagen Beetle 1600 GT. by bramm77, on Flickr

OMG RATLOOK 4 REEL.

5599699367_abd45eef66_z.jpg

1979 Jaguar XJ6 4.2 Automatic Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

There is an awful lot of these XJ6s abandoned on peoples driveways it seems, a real shame because they are gorgeous cars, this one is very dead.

5601297090_175c70c3e8_z.jpg

1993 Subaru Impreza 1.8 GL AWD Estate. by bramm77, on Flickr

This sort of thing really appeals to me, low spec Impreza with OAP hallmarks everywhere, excellent.

5600888101_e8d122c463_z.jpg

1974 Mercedes Benz T2 3.0 Campervan. by bramm77, on Flickr

Fantastic.

5602187425_a47aacfffa_z.jpg

1987 Mazda 323 1.3 LX Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr

I know there is a lot of love on here for these, this one had a tastefuly matching blue interior as well.

5602842476_581a7d5238_z.jpg

1963 Mercedes Benz W112 300SE Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

Another abandoned Merc, I wonder what it smells like inside?

5603833745_4c15602653_z.jpg

2002 Honda Mobilio 1.5 MPV. by bramm77, on Flickr

WHADDDA F***. But seriously, extremely odd import, like a mobile underwheeled greenhouse.

5605181279_4b65ef63ed_z.jpg

1997 LDV Convoy 3.5 V8 ex-Ambulance. by bramm77, on Flickr

I bet people still move out of the way for this, who wouldn't?

5605411767_5ee2b04779_z.jpg

1988 Bedford Astramax 1.3 Van. by bramm77, on Flickr

5606445262_e06eba0ab2_z.jpg

5606946429_e02168a550_z.jpg

1983 Volvo 240 DL 2.1 Estate. by bramm77, on Flickr

GR100

5608720617_fa09af417a_z.jpg

1973 Morris Marina 1.3 Suntor Campervan. by bramm77, on Flickr

This was located on a collection of about 5 roads which had a superb amount of shite on them, along with the volvo above and two MKI Sciroccos.

5610095725_e83ff14974_z.jpg

1979 Volkswagen Scirocco 1.6 GLS Coupe. by bramm77, on Flickr

1979 Volkswagen Polo 895cc N Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr

5613318206_9d04a121bb_z.jpg

1989 Ford Sierra Sapphire 1.6 Classic Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

Proper base spec Sierra, which Ford cleverly sold under the 'classic' nameplate, what a ploy. First one I have seen for yonks.

5612982725_a600ed5a56_z.jpg

1974 Austin Allegro 1300 DL Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

Quartic Allegro owned by a serial shiter, who owns more than one.

5613844428_a139f4a8a9_z.jpg

1990 SEAT Ibiza 903cc Special Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr

Rare as anything these days, I do vaguely recall seeing a few of them back in the day, this day being many years ago.

5614181544_cb2f7d0402_z.jpg

1963 Ford Cortina 1.5 Super Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

Personally wouldn't park this on the road myself, but each to their own and all that.

I shall post some more here later!

I know someone who is kinda looking for one of these at the moment. Don't think I'll bother telling him about this one though.

 

5602842476_581a7d5238_z.jpg

 

Pop top Marina looks mighty fine. Might be a Torcars one I reckon.

Theres an Ital campervan at McGuinness's scrapyard in Stoke, all complete. Or was a fortnight ago. I think they were selling it whole rather than scrapping it as it had 'DO NOT TOUCH' written on it.
