Here we have a very fine and very black Hongqi CA7460, seen in Beijing by reader Kael, thank you for the pics! The Hongqi (Red Flag) CA7460 was based on the third generation Lincoln Town Car and assembled in China by First Auto Works, the owner of the Hongqi brand. The CA7460 was made from 1998 until 2005 and was primarily meant for government use, some examples however ended up in private hands.

A very sad Lada Niva, seen by reader Kael in Beijing, thank you for the pictures. The good old Niva is clearly very abandoned. Tires are flat, some windows are gone, and it is very dirty all over. But this is also a very interesting Niva because it is sexed up with a very strange and very plastic body-kit, complete with a new grill. The owner must have been a sporty man…

Here we have a slightly overloaded truck, seen on the outskirts of Beijing by reader Kael. This way of loading a truck is very much forbidden in the capital but the further from the center you get the less police cares.

Here we have a fine Lada Samara sedan, seen by reader Kael in Beijing, thank you for the pictures! Production of the Samara started at 1984 and continues until today. This white car on pics is a Samara 21099 which was made from 1987 until 2004. Russia exported various Lada’s to China in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. When China’s economy started to boom nobody wanted the poor old fashioned Lada’s anymore, car on pic is therefore likely an early car.

Here we have a very fine pink car from China, seen by reader Kael right here in Beijing, thank you for the pictures! This pinky is a Jeep Cherokee that was made in China in various forms from 1984 until early 2009 by the Beijing-Jeep (later Beijing Chrysler) joint venture. This particular example is an early car and it has been customized quite a bit…

A very fine Audi S4 in matte-purple, seen right here in Beijing by reader Kael (thank you!) who earlier snapped a very pink Audi of the same type. Purple does this S4 no bad, an underestimated color indeed, check this purple Audi TT, or this purple Gallardo, and yet another purple Gallardo.

We love Pink, we love Bling, but what do you think, is the best thing? Well, a car that has both off course! Here we have a very fine Buick Regal in shiny pink & silver, seen by reader Kael right here in the capital Beijing, thank you very much for the pics. And it is a very striking machine indeed.

Almost 1700 in a sunny Beijing, time so for some Pink! Here we have a very fine 2011 Audi S4 in a shiny pink wrap. We dig. This great machine was seen by reader Kael in the capital, thank you very much for the picture. The Audi S4 is powered by a 3.0 TFSI V6 that poops out 329hp and 440nm, good enough for some serious pinky speed.
