On the contrary, zooming in reveals "FOR SALE".

Ah. On my phone, couldn't see what it said. 

Most interesting stuff I come across has a handwritten note that suggests the owners have had enough of the pikeys a knocking. 

 

When I had an old transit on the drive, it was every other day! 

Until I actually wanted to sell it.

That GS is great. I spotted it a year or so ago, so nice to see its still there. The piles of building materials suggest a house reburb, or possibly new owner, so I wonder if it'll be sent off for scrap soon...? Be a shame to turn it to bin cans even if it can't be saved.post-3924-0-83977700-1477409333.thumb.jpg.bd35b5034898a637b35b396e46156d95.jpg

I’ve been working in Chichester for 4 and a half years, I think this car has been there for that long at least. The door bottoms are starting to look frilly. Next to it, under the tarp, is a Deux chevaux vapeur.

Yow have the best chod spotting job going..

Indeed. The crews I work with normally point out a Ferrari or some other swanky motor going to/from Goodwood, whereas I tend to point out a Bluebird or some other wanky motor.

You didn’t notice the Landy forward control behind it? I think that one is D702SWL


Haha I really didn’t - as a bit of a rover fan I always revert my eyes to similar bodies

Had an mb6 for a bit and it was pretty rapid - the vti with the vtec 1.8 (b16a4?) in it. Rusted same place as the rovers but the interior was more velour and more Japanese.

Not a landy fan so I averted my eyes!

I spend my day spotting cars on the rounds, but would get into trouble if I posted any on the net, I wish it weren't so.

Some of the highlights are...

The little Datsun 1200 that Spottedlaurel has, when it's original owner had it.

A G reg mk1 Capri.

A Skoda Estelle.

A house with four really nice Scorpio shaped Granadas and a Cougar outside.

A Mazda 323 Turbo 4x4.

A really long Pigsnout Transit van/ pick up. This maybe the one that was on a thread in here a few months ago.

The one that had me most amazed was  a Vauxhall Firenza Droopsnoot, I only got to find that one because the cover blew off it, I had been wondering what it was.

I take the photos quite discretely, and none of work know I am a member of this forum.

      Right, thought it was about time I made some sort of effort to throw up what I've spotted over the last year or so.

      Theres plenty of chod around here, but I also need to be careful taking photos. Using my retarded 'stealth' mode (pointing phone camera at cars general direction whilst making it look like I'm checking a text message or something) hasn't always worked, so some/most of my pics are a little on the shite side.

      I've put them into order by car make/country of origin as its easier like that, thats how they are filed on my computer and how they are uploaded to photobucket. I'll start by what I upload and go on through the makes.

      NOTE - If the photos look they are cut-off from the right-hand side, you can either use the 'view image' option on Firefox or use CTRL + +/- to make the screen bigger or smaller on IE.

      Anyway, enough rambling on from me, lets start with some British chod:

      Jaguar Sovereign, untaxed since around 2003.



      Austin Ambassador A-reg, A-reg, ey Reg? etc... This had been here for ages, however it seems to have disappeared a few months ago, its still taxed though.



      I HAZ CRABZ etc.. When I took a pic of this, some other bloke had the same idea and took a pic too, anyone we know?




      Saw this the other day being driven by a pretty large bloke, he didnt look too comfortable


      Absolute poverty-spec Metro (I think) not seen these on steelies unless they had wheel trims covering them.


      Truck shite, ERF 180 in Digbeth, had to slide my hand through the bars to get this.


      Mini something or other outside some big posh house. Had to zoom in for pic, hence (non) quality.


      Maestro, been here for some time. Owner seems to have shite laying about, including some huge Vauxhall truck in his rather small front garden. He also has a Mini van, took a pic but cant find it.















      This house has always rotting chod laying around festering.






      This was owned by a mate of mine at one point, he got it to this condition. I last saw it being driven by some young suited-up 20-something lad. I waved at him whilst I was waiting at some lights in the Sterling but he looked at me bewildered.









      Riley Elf I think. Was shocked to see this around, had to get some pics


      Rover 2600 Auto, a recent find, doesnt look like its moved for a few years.


      Another 2600 SD1, this featured in some mag at one point.


      Scimiter GTE in Nottingham







      More Dolomitage.....












      For some of our older members......






      A Vauxhall PA Cesta? Quite a famous spot having been seen and snapped by others on other old-car-fan forums and photo hosting sites, apparently its been sitting here for 28 years...........

      More to come.................

      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.

      Here is my spotted thread...
       
      After a walk in a North East Wales town, I came back with these pics... 
       
      Delightful commercial vehicles: 
       
      Escort van and Bedford Rascal, I think? Both G reg.
       
      And a H reg Peugeot 309.
       
      More will certainly follow in the coming weeks.
