Carwash Spots

25 posts in this topic

I see lots of nice metal from my office in London with it's view over a hand cash wash (:wacko:) and hadn't thought of posting them. But after seeing these two today perhaps I should.There's some nice cars around (it's London after all) but there's a bit of a cheat as we have this company near by : www.classiccarclub.co.uk/privatemembers/fleet

I saw the '64 Jenson C-V8 this morning and now currently their '64 E-Type is going through. Makes a change from all the Addison Lee vehicles

I am truly horrified that owners of anything like that would even contemplate taking their vehicles to a street car-wash.:o

I get what you're saying however ....

These cars are used by many different people and I'm sure they wash them during ownership too so they can't be too precious.

I'd much rather see them go through this hand wash and get regularly used than see a concours one sitting in a museum.

Timeshare. Buy membership to the car club and use your points on the different cars.
 

This guy is a regular. Not normally a fan of black wheels or white cars but I think this looks stunning. Never looks like it needs a wash either!

The car club's '83 911 Super Carrera just going through now. I didn't realise it had this cool interior.

Here is a spot from my own carwash that I get to watch over.  (well, for the next 12 weeks anyway)

A proper red!!!  Love the colour, once it was washed, made a massive difference.  If only A8 buyers had the balls to be bold in their colour choices.  (no commensts please)

I like a solid red rather than an orangey one.

I haven't been in the office much recently. Only thing I noticed was this car. It looked immaculate and the colour is definitely from a certain time!

Did a certain Mr Daley get out?  Resplendent in his sheepskin coat?

Saw the 911 and E-type again today. The Jag's got a fabric sunroof. Really spoils the smooth lines :(

Beautiful old thing, to think we banger raced so many of them in the 90's when they were worthless is kind of sad, not to mention mk1 and 2 Escorts which are now worth silly money.

Yep but that's another story :)

I'll try and get some modern metal tomorrow. Should be sunny and it's Friday : 'something for the weekend sir?'

I don't chose the news I just report it. An old fave back again but also an '88 Dolomite Sprint

When you look up the reg you mean?  S-A = semi auto = PDK

Aha! Thanks. I didn't expect a gearbox to appear as part of the model name.
