A very abandoned Toyota MR2 Turbo, Spotted in China in the great city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province by Mr. Maj. The poor Toyota was left to rot a long time ago. Tires are deflated, suspension has been broken, and the body is decaying. A sad end for a great mid-engined Targa-topped Japanese sporty car.
A very speedy Citroen Fukang, Spotted in China on a tuning show in Beijing. The good Citroen is fitted with a fatass body kit including wide side skirts, fake air intakes in front of the rear wheels, a completely new rear bumper section, and a large roof spoiler. Further sexifications include new headlights, darkened windows, sporty five-spoke alloys, red and black spacy stickers on the sides, and a black bonnet with artwork revolving around a skull.
A wine red Bufori La Joya, Spotted in China on a car market in the great city of Taizhou in Zhejiang Province by Chao Hua. Bufori is an Australian brand that makes retro-style cars in Malaysia. They launched in China on the 2012 Beijing Auto Show and opened a dealer in Shanghai the same year. They didn’t expand any further and this particular car is the first Bufori we see on the road, wearing dealer plates so it is likely unsold.
A fiery red Chery QQ6 sedan, Spotted in China side by side on a tuning show in Beijing. The QQ6 is fitted with a fatass body kit including a racy front spoiler, side skirts, window wings, fake air vents on the front doors, and a large wing at the back. Best of all however is Garfield the Cat, wearing a crown in the bonnet.
A beautiful black BMW 525i sedan, Spotted in China near the Sanlitun embassy district in Beijing. The good Bimmer was in good shape with fresh looking paint, shiny chrome, all parts attached, and no obvious bruises or rust. The E35 BMW 5-series was manufactured from 1987 until 1996, it was never officially exported to Chia so seeing one on the road is a rare pleasure.
A very fuzzy Porsche Cayenne S, Spotted in China in the Sanlitun embassy district in Beijing. The good Porsche is fitted with a very Chinese body kit, including a confusing bumper section with many a bar and many a light, low slung side bars with fake air vents in the rear wheel arches, and fake air intakes in the bonnet.
A beastly Volvo C202 utility vehicle, Spotted in China on a classic car festival in Taoranting Park. The Volvo C202 was manufactured in Hungary from 1977 until 1985. It was primarily designed a a military vehicle but it was also sold to civilian customers.
A massive Hongqi CA770 state limousine, Spotted in China on a classic car festival in Taoranting Park. This is the very rare ‘CA770JH’ variant, which is an ambulance. The stretcher goes trough the trunk and the patient lies in the rear comportment. This great example is black and has a flagpole, indicating it served as a motorcade car.
Time for some fatass American metal. Here we have a red C4 Chevrolet Corvette and a tenth generation Cadillac Eldorado, Spotted in China side by side on a tuning show in Beijing. The vehicles belong to members of a rather feisty local tuning club, heavily involved in illegal street racing and night-drifting competitions.
A very pretty Volkswagen Beetle, Spotted in China in the great city of Fuzhou in Fujian Province. The Beetle is covered with over 10.000 five-mao coins. Five mao, or half a yuan, equals 0.08 USD, making for a total of $800. The five mao coin is gold colored, shining nicely in the autumn sun.
