This is the ultra rare Great Wall Mini SUV, Spotted in China on a parking lot in east Beijing.

This example looked loved and well-taken care for, it was original down to the wheel covers and didn’t show any signs of damage or rust.

When in Changchun I went to the auto show, ate a lot of greasy lamb, and walked through town looking for old Hongqi cars. I found a many, most of the Audi-based kind. Without further delay: the red car is a very early Hongqi CA7220AE Xinxing (New Star) in a rare red color.

A beautiful black Mitsubishi 3000GT speedy car, Spotted in China in Tongzhou District in Beijing. The poor car was in a poor condition, dusty and dirty and in dire need of love. The black color is a respray and not a very good one, the original red paint peeped out everywhere.
