interesting/funny/special cars sightings
Published 20/12/2017 @ 19:47:08, By Baube
seen yesterday

1995-1996 Ford Escort LX , getting kind of rare ( even the last ones i can spend a few days without seeing one ) and a clean example ( well, if you don't look at the horrible white thing on it ) is even rarer

The red car is an FSO Polonez. Or like we germans call it a "Polonäse": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FSO_Polonez

Dodge Grand Caravan, complete with red indicators.

Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. It was stripped down to a civilian version but had the P71 rims. First time in my life that i saw a Crown Victoria actually driving (out of USA). He almost lost control, drifted around the turn.

Usually i dont publish crash pictures (except of whom i was involved) because i not support rubbernecking. But this one... i ask myself: How did that happen? Why didnt they stop their cars in a way that makes it easier to exit their cars. The black wagon had a person with a wheelchair inside. It must have been tough to exit the car if you need a wheelchair and three wheels of the car are in the air.

The white Volkswagen Golf Variant was also damaged.

(There was a second separate crash just one kilometer behind this one. Maybe a rear-ender in the traffic jam caused by the first crash.)

Found a very rare 1978 Dodge Monaco Crestwood wagon for sale on craigslist. We only have two listed on IMCDb.

Very blurry as I was only able to take a passing pic of it - here's a US-spec Golf IV wagon. Driven by a young Turkish couple.

@atom: Looks like Dongfeng is doing some winter tests. As the car was already introduced, i guess they are planning an european release.

It's owned by T-Engineering in Trollhättan, a company formed in 2012 by ex-Saab employees it's now owned by Dongfeng. They develop engine management systems. I'd guess it's a testbed for ECUs.

In Europe we got both Golf and Bora (=Jetta) as wagon, which were nearly identical except the headlights, grille and bumpers.
But indeed I thought that only one of the two existed in North-America... (and rather the Jetta).

And this generation the Jetta had rectangular headlights, so this wagon is not US-spec.

Very odd, because the bumpers had sidemarkers (that's not just a motion blur) and the front license plate was US size.

US Side markers and the european front fascia seems to be not so odd:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/54736619@N06/7173416519 (it also has the american plate space on the rear)

You could add the side markers if you have a scratch on the fender (this black part) and you want to replace it. Or because it looks cool. Its not possible to put the Jetta bumper under the Golf head lights, so it can only be the black part that was changed.

And the rear plate space is part of the trunk lid, thats also an easy change.

It is indeed not odd to see EU-spec Golfs and Jettas retro-fitted with US-spec bumpers and plate holders these days, because that's the trendy thing to do to your car in certain circles.

Along with large day-glo wheels, slammed suspension, a waste gate that goes PFOOOHHHRRRR with every gear change, an old-style roof luggage rack, a so-called "sticker bomb" on a fender, and rust on the hood. Sorry for the rant, but it's like the implausible mish-mash of every worst automotive trend ever.

(Maybe these pictures should be in the Funny Pictures from Email/Internet thread: they're not mine, but made and send by my mother who travels a bit and eventually understood that I prefer car pictures rather than bland post cards...)

A Cabriolet "D" (4-door) for sure, but is it a 1937-41 Typ 230 (W143) or a 1937-42 Typ 320 (W142)? Does the one-piece windshield make it a W143?

Next episode: Cuban vehicles.

It's never too late to share nice pics :smile:
just curious, how is the Q2 ?


I thought it was nice. Roomy enough for 4 people. My dad did all the driving. I thought the navigation system was pretty intuitive, my dad not so much; I ended up operating it from the passenger seat all week.



I saw that exact one in Brussels, back in the summer of 2015 ! Photobucket being what it is now, my pics can't be seen anymore, so I'll try to insert one from Facebook.


Hah! How about that? Cool.
