A fiery red Ferrari 348TS, Spotted in China in a showroom in the far west of Beijing. The Italian race machine was in extremely good shape, perfectly maintained, smooth in its black paint, and completely original down until the alloys.
A wine red U12 Nissan Bluebird sedan, with a pink towel in the background, Spotted in China on the parking lot of a recycling company in the far west of Beijing. Happily, they hadn’t recycled the Nissan. Yet. Sadly, it wasn’t in a very good shape; clearly not in use anymore, with a rusted and busted bonnet, yellow’ed side lights, and deflated tires. Still, saving this great Japanese car would not be completely impossible; given time, money, and U12 love.
An extremely sleek Porsche 944S, Spotted in China in a showroom in the far west of Beijing. The German race machine was in extremely good shape, perfectly maintained, smooth in its black paint, and completely original down until the alloys.
Here we have a very beautiful Tianjin Xiali TJ7100U sedan, painted in green and looking ultra clean, Spotted in China in the far west of the capital. It is very rare to find a Xiali in such a good shape in Beijing, most have been crushed ages ago and the ones that are left alive are usually more wreck than car. Not this one though!
An ultra racy Liberty Walk R35 Nissan GT-R, with a matching license plate, Spotted in China a few meters from my home. The good Nissan is fitted with an outrageous body kit and wings all over, it also has air lift system to get over the bumps.
A beautiful black Chevrolet Blazer, Spotted in China on a crappy car market in east Beijing. The good Chevy was dusty and dirty but otherwise in a reasonable shape; paint was smooth and plastics fresh, and everything was original down until the alloys.
A beautiful dark blue Bova Futura bus, Spotted in China on a parking lot near a residential area in Dongba in the far far east of Beijing. The good and giant Bova was a bit bruised here and there but otherwise in a great shape.
The Bova Futura was a futuristic looking bus developed and built by the famous Dutch bus builder Bova, now part of the VDL Group. The Futura debuted in 1982 and it looked like a spaceship compared to other buses at the time.
A beautiful old Toyota Coaster Deluxe minibus, Spotted in China in the far eastern wastelands of Beijing, where villages and villagers are still holding out. The good Coaster was abandoned and very dirty but not in an overly bad condition. A local told me it hadn’t been used since the Olympic Games, which was in back 2008.

A big black and beautiful Great Wall Haval H5 stretched limousine, Spotted in China on a car market in the great city of Chengdu. The giant vehicle was in very good shape and stood on sale for a mere 150.000 yuan, and that ain’t much money for 6.87 meters of luxury.
