Mystery Man
When I looked through my pictures on my phone, I found a few interesting and rare vehicles, although not many yet. But I wanted to show them here ...

Opel Speedster, here in Bayreuth, Bavaria in May 2016.

An old-looking van, maybe made by Asquith, near the London Eye in November 2017.

My alltime favourite but rare van: 2003 (by plate) Renault Avantime. Here at a beach in Mallorca 2018.

US Army AM General HMMWV M1037 on a German highway this September.

Mercedes-Benz 280 S [W108] in the Spree Forest last week.

And today: Toyota Carina E [T190] in my home town. Nowadays rare here.
Cars and other stuff seen on Orkney - Sept 2018 (pt2) - bikes and trikes, Orkney Vintage Club display

Classic Brits trio - Matchless, Ariel and BSA

Pair of pretty Honda phut-phuts

Macho 1942 Harley 750cc

2003 Boom Mustang trike from Germany with new plate - can be hired out for local weddings, chauffeured sightseeing tours etc, explaining the taxi plate on rear. However anyone who knows Orkney weather might prefer to look elsewhere for their special day

VW-based trike "Barbie" - no idea if this is a real name
[...]Chevrolet - I can't remember what the emblem on it showed

Apparently a short bed, meaning a ½-ton model. The emblem should then be 3100. 1951 only model, due to the 1947-51 door handle and the 1951+ door vent window.

[...]Chevrolet Suburban (year range?)

@rjluna2: The vertical black parts in the egg-crate grille could also indicate a 1970 model :wink:
Cars and other stuff seen on Orkney - Sept 2018 (pt1)

Derelict double-decker Metro - conversion seems to be called Chairman (ho-bleeding-ho!) built by Gowrings - "We Have Been Putting The Wheelchair User At The Heart Of Our Conversions For Over 50 Years"

Locally owned 1991 Honda Beat, imported 2009, has just done a trip to Finland

Auction notice from 2013
I'm back!

Recently cleaned up my iPhotos, and was on the lookout for the rarest, most unusual car I could find (that I haven't posted yet) Trying to not post cars that were common then and rare now, which is kinda hard - I'd post tons of 80s and 90s Mitsubishis, Toyotas, Kias, Mazdas and Hyundais here otherwise.

These were already a very slow seller when they were, I don't ever recall seeing one on the road here:
Pictures taken in October 2010, when there were still a lot of 80s and 90s cars on German roads.

Only six of these on the site...

Don't know about the US, but in Germany this whale is extinct:

Yes, they had a short market presence here, but compared to Hyundai and Kia they were absolute junk:

...and a little something for tonkatracker:
The three above pictures were taken in July 2011.

Berlin taxis are usually E-Classes or Tourans, but sometimes...
On the airport, on my way to Tallinn I even saw a big 80s FWD Caddy as a taxi! Didn't photograph it though.
Picture taken in June 2015.

A 9-year-old me in 2001, but I remember my neighbor having that old 50s car back there on the right - anybody know what it might be? I've always been curious.

Nice to see you! Your neighbors car is a 1958 Ford Custom 300 Fordor Sedan :smile:
