I was embarrassingly pleased to see this, looking good and completely free of rot. Doesn't seem that long ago that you couldn't move for them on British roads, but now they all seem to have gone.

Fresh catch,

Spotted last week at Oporto during a business trip.

A "youngtimer" BMW E29, who start to show signs of negleted ownership. I  hope it will survive...

 

And the opposite case, a Citroen BX, a car that is fast desapering from the streets, but this example is in show room condition. It have all the correct period Total and Citroen dealer stickers and maybe it's a timewarp or a car that is allready in the hands of an enthusiast...

(Filinto Mota is one of the portuguese oldest Citroen Dealer's)

Fresh Catch,

 

Another late 80's Citroen spotted this days at Oporto, but in this time in a poor condition. It may not survive...

Another Renault Espace Series I, but this one is almost pristine, in Luxembourg, December 2011.
Hubcaps are only missing because of the use of winter tyres.

But I guess our Editor rather fancies the Avantime variation with Matra genes (bellow at Nürburgring in May 2011)

The Fiat Panda looks a nice anti-crisis commuter, as bellow in front of Nancy Museum, December 2011

By the way, did I dream James recently posted something about a Renaul Espace with peeling paintwork? Where did I see it?

The very first post on this thread Mario! The one that kicked it all off.

The title of the website is Classic and Sports Car. None of the vehicles pictured can be put into either category. An Espace? Half a dozen rusty Mercs? C'mon.......

... and a not so rusty Bimmer, spotted two days ago in Lisbon, not a classic yet but a youngtimer with a bright future as a classic many years from now.

hope it will survive...

But of course. Thanks, James.
You deserve as well the Avantime's front view.
