I’ll pop a note through later this week. If you want me to put your details on it let me know by PM

Probably just worth popping a note in to see if there is any interest at all first. I sincerely doubt anything will happen but its always worth a try and putting "genuine Citroen enthusiast" or similar in the note helps rather than "u sell car or wot m9? Luv, scrappy steve"

Bracklesham and The Witterings are proving to be good spotting areas for 4+ wheeled turds. Commercial crap today.

Does grafting a CF front on an Iveco immediately make it less shit?

Nice to see an old girl still earning a crust, although of that era these were pretty crap - terrible blindspots and sciatica inducing driver's seat. The next generation DAF 55 LF/CF series was a massive improvement.

Good amount of spottage today.

Hubba Hubba on the C15 camper, though I'm not a lover of artwork on a car.

Missed out on a Maestro Van, F reg City E spec in a sort of sky blue colour. I have seen in knocking about Chichester just never had a chance to snap it. Ditto a B reg Nissan sunny in a metallic hangover piss colour.

Two more from today while driving rent-a-wreck about in the witterings.

Is this a Demio? ?

First time I’ve ever seen such a blandly coloured Royce. TBH it looked like Dulux matt emulsion close up, brushmarks for bonus chod points.

Magnolia Dulux weathershield - for the win. Classy.

Also, imagine how convenient it would be if you had the same name as the plate? You know, you were called 174.

Fucking hell! It's not the only one.

Yes I was sceptical of her claim (old girl, Germanic accent) as I’m sure I’ve seen another Matra like it at a show in the past.

Was she quite glam? I wonder if she is the old bird I met at a car show several years ago with a JDM Datsun 240Z. I have a feeling she owns several cool old sports cars. @seth knows what I'm talking about and no, I don't think he should post the photo.

I know a guy with a restored red one, but those are the only three I can place at the moment

Conference calls are boring things, in attempt to avoid lapsing into REM state sleep I went digging for more info on this

Dvla shows it as 1585cc.
Google(other forms of search tracking are available) suggests this isnt a BMC engine.

More digging took place

This appears to have a beautifully done Fiat transplant under the bonnet

There are a couple more hot Morris Minors around Chichester, I’ve not been able to catch the others on camera yet.

The red one often has a companion.

I’m not on the bins but I feel this has just enough cachet to qualify for a rag and bone style singalong.  Ready?

Any old Orion, any old Orion

Any any any old Orion

You look neat, sitting in the heat

that rear panel will give your Mig welder a treat

You need a rigger booted man with a HIAB van

And some ratchet straps to tie on

I wouldn’t give you tuppence for your old skool tax ORION! ORION!

      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.
