Some photos. Of some cars. Seen in some places. 24.04.2016

I think its a US model Accord as they actually had pop up lights, as opposed to the 'regular' fronted ones we got over here, such a weird mish mash in the range at the time, with the Prelude, Integra and Accord Aerodeck all getting pop ups, and the Accord, despite having them in several markets, didn't get them here.

Note the melons on the bike.

 

Way ahead of you there, chief.

GR10 pics, cheers for sharing. I take it the elderly Lambrettas/Vespas that used to be prevelant over there are almost extinct now? I bet a fair few found their way to these shores.

That carwash Mini Estate makes me smile every time I pass it. They actually seem to look after it, to some degree, altho' it was sitting on a flat tyre when I passed it on Saturday.

Isn't that Dodge 50 a civvy version of the Reynolds-Boughton RB44? I'm sure the power companies up here had a few for remote location work.

Love the Vietnam pics - I'd love to have a crack at actually driving thro' that lot. Maybe even in the IFA... :lol:

Hey, the five door Niva is an EPIC spot! Superb.

 

Your Viet Samara spot was a nice surprise too!

 

Just catching up on this thread...

... Toyota Innova

A 7-seater designed for less developed markets, check the ground clearance and live rear axle.

The Innova is based on the current Hilux (Vigo) chassis, with the same D4D engine, or more usually the 2.7vvti pez lump (on LPG).

There seems to be a similar abundance of ASEAN-only models like the Vios, similar to Thailand.

The 'Limo' tag denotes the pov-spec taxi version, with vinyl seats etc.

 

I'm afraid I have no idea about the next one...

the little taxi is a Chinese Hafai Lobo.

...which seems to be a close relation of the Naza Forza, from Malaysia:

This one I spotted in Chiang Mai in 2009. I thought it might be the first one of many to come in, but there are still surprisingly few Malay cars in Thailand, and I'm yet to see another Forza.

Btw, that looks like a Kia Pride behind it, but that'll be a Ford Festiva :D
