Peugeot 307 CC has Happy Alloys in China

A very brown Peugeot 308 CC, Spotted in China in the great city of Zunyi in Guizhou Province by Reader HP, thank you for the picture! The alloys are anything but brown, painted happy in yellow, blue, orange, green, and Pink. The brown body and happy alloys make for a fine combination of things on a fine little sporty car.

The 308 CC is based on the Peugeot 308 hatchback. It is imported into China with a price ranging from 304.800 to 338.800 yuan. Lone engine is a 160hp 1.6 turbo petrol. Sadly, the CC is not very popular in country, except with the good ladies of the Xichang police corps.

Going to Thailand

Hello good Readers,

We are off to the great country of Thailand for beer, beach, and babe. We will live on a remote island without wifi or computing machines, and thus a perfect place to recharge our batteries. We will be back on the 25th, and then we will do a Spotted in China – Thailand Special with fuzzy Thai cars. On pic a tellow Daihatsu Hijet taxi I met in Phuket in ’09.

Take care and see y’all soon!

It happened earlier today in the Chaoyang District in Beijing. A red Model S hit a roadside lamp pole and then a parked bus. The driver and passenger of the Tesla were taken to a local hospital for a check but were not seriously injured. The bus was empty.
