Brammys spots. Round up from the past 6 months.

Recommended Posts

Yeh, I thought a GT Beetle was rocking horse poo..

 

Space cruiser is fab....what a great mode of transport they must be.

 

Blue 323 is the spit of my old one that binhoker now has (and that had the blue trim too)

 

And my dad had one of those black Sapphire Classics for about 3 months...when he realised how much fuel it drank on the short journeys he did. Makes sense as it came from that Basingstoke Ford dealer (Jacksons?)

Jacksons was the name of the Basingstoke Ford dealer, and there is a few of their old stuff still floating around, the only MKI Sierra I know of was sold from there, for example. They went out of business around 2003ish, I think they had to relocate following the Festival Place redevelopment as their showroom was where they wanted to build.

Anyway, here is some more:

1988 BMW M3 E30 2.3 Coupe. by bramm77, on Flickr

First proper M3 I have seen in aggggggggggggggges, love the exhaust.

1986 Austin Maestro 1.3 City X Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr

It's now getting to the stage that I will see a Maestro everytime I go spotting. Not complaining or anything.

5625013858_5e3889434c_z.jpg

1988 Nissan Prairie 1.8 SGL MPV. by bramm77, on Flickr

Surprisingly unrusty, even around the tailgate, which seem to be as bad as Metro rear arches.

5625776374_d2bc56a26e_z.jpg

1965 Hillman Minx 1.6 Deluxe Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

5626669425_1bce65aef2_z.jpg

1997 Lada Niva 1.7 Hussar. by bramm77, on Flickr

Owned by what appears to be a fairly well off woman. These cars actually have quite a unique sound, like a military vehicle.

5627325301_e2c26550fc_z.jpg

1972 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1.6 Super Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

5630111837_c6a32701a5_z.jpg

1991 Zastava Yugo 45 Tempo by bramm77, on Flickr

This one has been off the road since 2000, probably because no one within the entire UK wanted it.

5632566098_488803d2f6_z.jpg

1970s Bedford CF SWB Campervan. by bramm77, on Flickr

5633618365_85aafdf193_z.jpg

1972 Vauxhall Victor FD. by bramm77, on Flickr

Nomnom. Looks nice and beefy, wonder if it has the original engine as well.

5635900574_8bbf6200c8_z.jpg

1983 Saab 900 2.0 GLE Automatic Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

It is getting a lot harder to spot these older Saab 900s, this was nice. Woman in the corner thought I was taking a photo of her, hence the distressed look.

5637315050_89dc7d231e_z.jpg

1985/86 Nissan 300C Automatic V6. by bramm77, on Flickr

Overload of chrome, but it works well. Still massive cars.

5636871099_a658475a1b_z.jpg

1990/91 Ford Fiesta XRV. by bramm77, on Flickr

OMG XRV. If only they had actually made the Escort XRV, which was an early 80s proposal.

5638836527_ee5005144c_z.jpg

1984 Vauxhall Chevette 1.3 'Sunstripe' Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr

Mega late Chevette hatchback, they stopped making these before B plates even begun, so I wonder what is up here. Special edition, but possibly made by a dealer wanting to shift the remaining stock?

More later.

5640587655_3ee7e18513_z.jpg

1986 Vauxhall Cavalier 1.6 L Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr

Suits the house just fine, I'd love to think this is owned by a Sid and Doris type couple who look at it every morning.

5642795016_ddb0dfecba_z.jpg

1984 Ford Orion 1.6 GL Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

Who needs proper spares, when you have imagination?

1983 Volvo 245 GL Estate. by bramm77, on Flickr

Someone on here once mentioned the rear doors on these 240 Estates were the same as the saloon, hence the kink at the top. It really annoys me now.

Slightly rough looking Interceptor, I hope this is owned by some Tim Wonnacott lookalike.

5671859876_6fc8e78454_z.jpg

1986 Rover 213 SE Automatic Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

The old man in this gave me a proper cold stare as I dared to cross the zebra crossing in front of him.

This, to me, is the absolute definition of the word win. I'd love to get something like that purely to put a hooky MOT on every year and leave it outside the house making the place look untidy and shitter than it already does.

 

5649017759_2f9ce1abb0_z.jpg

1983 Ford Transit 190 Minibus. by bramm77, on Flickr

 

 

If it boiled down to it though, it'd need to be this one for me. Absolutely lovely.

I don't know if you ever head down to Hartley Wintney, but a delightfully scummy looking Renault 4's just turned up on a driveway I pass sometimes - it's the first one I've seen in the real world for years. I think there's a 70s Mini Clubman there too, and there's been a Mini pickup there in the past. Hardcore shiters, clearly!

You are probably all sick of seeing this thread at the top of the forum, but anyway, here is some more:

5676833557_accc0b3f7b_z.jpg

1988 Fiat Uno 45 Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr

These cars have got really uncommon rather quickly, although this one was seemingly holding up well. I think the clear front indicators suit them more however.

5677930132_93d7e7e75a_z.jpg

1990s Chrysler Vision 3.5 Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

Interesting car parked right outside where I live, wearing export plates.

5678889695_4c605766ac_z.jpg

1975 BMW 2002 Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

Unusual mods, they look pretty good bar that front air dam.

5679860320_907127c6ce_z.jpg

1982 Ford Cortina 1.6 Base Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

Base model Cortina with Ghia bits and pieces.

5680828534_ca32991697_z.jpg

1987 Ford Granada 2.9i Scorpio. by bramm77, on Flickr

Shagged looking Granada, this thing is clearly living on borrowed time.

5680905771_366e5bf72b_z.jpg

1993-97 Chrysler LHS 3.5 V6 Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

Another foreign plated Yank, this must have quite a pleasant ride from Poland.

5682618183_0f1d28fe1f_z.jpg

1983 Saab 900 2.0 GLS Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr

Another Y reg 900, this being a late prefacelift one. Those earlier grilles look great IMO.

5684733664_687c65f5d9_z.jpg

1981 Alfa Romeo GTV Coupe. by bramm77, on Flickr

Yum.

5685333120_4e1fff99b0_z.jpg

1989 Austin Maestro 1.6 Automatic. by bramm77, on Flickr

THEY ARE FOLLOWING ME EVERYWHERE. But anyway, a fine looking example, and the wraparound bumpers look SO much better.

5686077413_e2f69cab63_z.jpg

1986 Nissan Sunny 1.3 Spirit Saloon. by bramm77, on Flickr

Another Sunny, typical runout edition.

5716972941_e8aceac613_z.jpg

1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint. by bramm77, on Flickr

No idea why this was parked on a road, I would seriously NOT trust anyone else even walking past it.

5718397494_83796cf67a_z.jpg

1994 Toyota Crown 2.4 Deluxe Diesel Estate. by bramm77, on Flickr

It was fun trying to guess what this was from a distance, even if I didn't even get close to what it was. They have really modern looking front ends (well for 1994), and the rear end doesn't really match.

5720619432_4c660cdcd4_z.jpg

Hideous 127 thing which recently appeared on ebay. I think I swore out loud many times when I saw it.

1985 Rover SD1 3.5 Vanden Plas EFi Hatchback. by bramm77, on Flickr

 

That's quite amazing, brings back memories of bunking off college one day in 1985 to go to Godfrey Davis Europcar Chauffeur Drive, Victoria in London to swap a 2.8GL Granada (with dodgy central locking) for 3 Rover 3.5 Vanden Plas EFis in black for the forthcoming Queens visit to RAF Wattisham. With the one collected earlier on in the week, we had four of them.

 

They were B434RVC, B436RVC, B437RVC and B439RVC. One of these got reversed into the corner of a wall on the way back, V eed the tailgate dead centre and left an area of grey primer showing. The Chauffeur drive manager went nuts on the phone and within an hour of them coming back off hire there was a transporter there to collect them.

That belongs to a chap called Dave Plowman. Headlamps are E36 BMW ones with Xenons, and it's megasquirted. He's had it from near enough new. Nice, nice thing.

 

5925596714_0c2c035376_z.jpg

 

Want. It's even got the vastly superior Scheel 75-78 RS2000 custom seats instead of the more popular (and correct for a Harrier) 'fishnet' Recaros. I'd like a set of Scheel seats for my Mk2, but the OSF crew used to fit Recaros and bin the Scheels back in the early '90s. A pair of mint Scheel 'roll tops' and you're looking at around a grand.
