Spotted!

Postby Karl » Mon May 07, 2012 8:17 pm

Thought I would start a thread dedicated to both the best and worst automotive creations you have spotted on your travels.

I'll start with this little beauty.

It's pretty rare to see a Vectra GSI, back in the day it was a legend... But look at the stickers?! What's worse is the filler job on the rear arches!

Lets see what you guys find on your travels.

I actually quite like the Irmscher inspired stickers!...though they need to be longer and angled towards the rear more, to suit the length and shape of the car.
Don't like the 'VECTRA' stickers and what indeed is up with modified cars and exposed filler. Sort it out people!
Cheers.
Ian.

Absolutely mint and original. A real classic! Very jealous.

Corsair. At East Linton. 20 miles east of Edinburgh. A lady saw me taking the picture and explained it belonged to her son who used it now and then for weddings. My sister had one of these in that reddish/brown colour that was popular then.

Noticed this today. Behind a farm on an unnamed road. It’s obviously been there for years and it would take some serious jungle warfare to get it out. No idea what it is and no way I could get close to it. Any ideas out there?
