They had a nice series of Flash commercials where an Element would be in a conversation with animals. :grin:
(among others a unicorn, a kangaroo and the infamous crab)

There was also one highly controversial (and I think banned) commercial where the Element was talking with a pointer dog...

I don't think I've ever seen one of these in person? It's a wonder this one is still around, and even more why someone would pimp it:

(And yes, that's a Chevrolet badge on the fender... :halalala: )

a Daewoo Nexia.

https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daewoo_Nexia

one of the uncountable T-Cars:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/GM_T_platform_(1979)

The very last ones were sold here as Chevrolet.*

On my street is one survivor left, owned by the son of a neighbour.


* :think: hmm, Wiki says, only the late, Uzbekistan-made ones were badged as Chevrolet. But AFAIK these weren't sold here.
Dunno, if the Daewoo was dropped, before all Daewoos, sold in the EU, were labeled as Chevrolet, of if some very last already got the badge.
But the badge of the car on the photo can be just a pimp-element by the proud owner.

I don't know where this Fleetwood Southbridge comes from (I never saw this kind of plates) nor how it "landed" in Biert, a really small village in Ari├Ęge, where it appears to be one of the long term dwellings available in the municipal camping...

This motorhome was apparently made from 1981 (according to owner's manuals) until 1987 (less trustworthy source: a classified ad site). It's propelled by a Chevrolet 454 ci / 7.4 l V8, like here, or by a Diesel engine.
Does anyone have more info about this vehicule (accurate production period, chassis...)? Later models are built on Ford and Workhorse chassis: does the Workhorse option imply a GM
P-Series chassis for earlier models, as they used a Chevrolet V8?

No pictures, but in the parking lot in front of the train station there were two rarities next each other: a Kia Pride (with someone in it, so I didn't take a photo) and...a Brilliance BS6!

This looks like an old Florida registration.

Little French guy that I haven't seen in ages but is still going strong in Frankfurt:

The whole Tesla-hype made me forget these existed, luckily reality was there to remind me:

I got some extra info: the owner of this motorhome was a US car importer, so a Florida registration is not surprising. But were comes the A101 0VG registration number from?

It looks very british. A101 OVG has been affixed to a "2003 BROWN CHRYSLER UNKNOWN" since 16/07/2003, but before that, this campervan could have been the original wearer.

Thanks, Exiv96! I forgot that LHD vehicles can also be sold in the UK :wink:
So it would make this motorhome a 1981-84 vehicle: made from 1981 until 1987, with a 1983-84 registration.

Imagine that these won't be so unusual to North American posters, but they weren't sold here and I suspect the EU-spec (this one is from NL by the plate) ones have all but died out now:

What is unusual is the headlights. For once, ours were flush and the European version were not. Same with the Grand Prix of that era.

I suspect some custom work, as ours had composite headlamps by that point like night cub said. Also looking at those screws(?) and blue tape over the sealed low-beams.

I occasionally see one or two of these around, usually in poor or rural parts of my area.

Haven't seen one in a long time. Can't remember where it last saw it.
