15 things on the verge of extinction on UK roads

So we have no roadworthy Tagoras left, only 1 LNA, 6 Argentas (more than I expected!!), 1 Trevi, 6 Audi V8 etc. And very few Ambassadors, Itals, Belmonts, original XR3 ....

Tried a couple of ideas, thinking of things which were unloved in period so hardly sold any, and which are forgotten today and/or so naff that nobody would decide to bring in as an eccentric personal import. Seems we still have about 400 CityRovers, four Seat/Fiat 133 (2 on road, 2 SORN), and 1 or 2 Alfa 6 left. However seems our last Alfa 90 melted away in 2016, and although we still have a few Yugo/Zastava 45 and 55 still trundling around, we've lost all the others eg Sana, 311, 313, 413, 513.

The Yugo Sana is not yet lost. This is the best example in the UK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkQYhskmpKI

On the subject of forgotten cars: only 1 Sao Penza left.

Yeah, most of these are "cars people on Autoshite have" https://autoshite.com/topic/36034-sao-penza/

Fairly sure someone had a UK market Tagora SX at one point, to the point that they had it fully restored.

Sounds like a football chant "There's only one Sao Penza, one Sao Penza ...".

Apparently three Lonsdales still exist. Could be hours of festive fun ahead ....
