Old Car Spotting

Recommended Posts

Good morning spotters.

A fair few of my spots have been at the Chevron Garage on Peterlee's North West Industrial Estate, and yesterday they delivered another quality spot - this 1976 MG Midget.

Currently on a SORN, and last MoT'd in 2018, hopefully this beauty will be back on the road real soon.

For those of you who may be interested, the story of the spot is here...

 

 

Until the next time spotters...

Well I didn't get a pic but my taxi to the airport in Cape Verde had 541k on the clock. (Km) :o

Sounded like the thing was going to fall apart but it got us there. 

The island is literally called "Salt" (Sal). And they have almost no rain and no freshwater there. All comes from desalinisation plants. So these cars will be covered in salt regularly and it's not going to be cheap to wash regularly. Bucket and sponges were apparent - no car washes.

Makes it even more impressive that it's got to the distance it has. 

Guess the make !!

I don't have a clue on the model.

Hello again spotters.

Nice road-legal 22 year old MG outside my local butchers' yesterday afternoon.

I also did a run around Peterlee's North West Industrial Estate early this afternoon, and ended-up at the garage that recovers all the stolen cars for the bobbies. Here's three motors that won't be getting any older...

And in their lock-up was this mystery old car. Can anyone identify the make/model....?

Easy. MGBGT.

It's either a non-chrome bumper chrome bumper model, or a non-plastic bumper plastic bumper model.

I should really have said It's either a non-chrome bumper nor plastic bumper chrome bumper model, or a non-plastic bumper nor chrome bumper plastic bumper model.

      Right, try this. Go onto howmanyleft and pick a manufacturer and a distinctive model no longer made.
      1) note down the peak year and number of cars.
      2) halve the number of cars left and note down the year.
      3) halve it again and note the year
      Rating equals time to halve 1 / time to halve 2
      Examples
      VW Corrado 16V
      1995 - 3800
      2006 - 1900
      2011 - 928
      Corrado = 11/5
      Fiat Bravo 2.0 HGT
      1999 - 1368
      2007 - 769
      2010 - 382
      Bravo = 8/3
      Rover 25 GTi
      2002 - 1295
      2011 - 649
      2013 - 336
      Rover 25 = 9/2
      Nissan Almera 2.0 GTi
      2000 - 1400
      2009 - 700
      2011 - 370
      Nissan Almera = 9/2
      Toyota Celica GT 2.0
      2001 - 2223
      2013 - 1152
      2018 - 536
      Toyota Celica = 12/5
      Chewy over all rankings from 5 contenders
      1) Toyota
      2) VW
      3) Nissan/Rover
      4) Fiat
      Anyone else fancy a go, who can find the worst and best / highest lowest chewy scores
