The *Official* Old School Spotters Thread

Postby SPEC S » December 1st, 2009, 11:09 pm

After hearing all the bachanal going on in the other thread, and nobody acting on making this thread become a reality, here goes. Post your pictures of Trinidad's unique antique cars roaming around. ( Must be in good condition, or in the case of rust, something you don't see everyday, wouldn't want a thread with every 120y driving around now would we)

worksux101, that would be great if you could transfer the pictures from the other thread, thanks in advance. For those who are interested in classic and unique cars, I hope this thread makes you smile, and those who are not, yawn

I not fussed
but I think in the spirit of the original spotters ched, it would make sense, since that ched was really for real exotics
MGs, mint Corollas etc not really relevant in that ched.....

^^^ I know the car you're talking about, I agree with MG Man, it should be for cars outside the toyota and nissan world, you get the point.

old school

Postby zdeternal » December 4th, 2009, 6:55 am

I guess these will be better appreciated here then...

Haven’t been logging into the site as often as I used to (new job has me too busy)... But here are some pics of some interesting cars I saw recently… The one on the flatbed is a 32 ford (I think).. . Sent chills up and down my spine when I saw it… This and the ‘68 Camaro were spotted at the V8 car show I went to recently… The rolls Royce was at Bhagwansingh’s car park one Saturday.
