A big black and beautiful Hyundai Equus Limousine, Spotted in China at an Hyundai dealer in Beijing. The massive vehicles comes with a big ‘n shiny grille, 19 inch wheels, and Equus badging all around.
We are back in China, time to talk about Holland. I spotted exactly one (01) Chinese vehicle in the wild. Not a car but a gray YTO X804 tractor, seen here on the boulevard at the great beach city of Zandvoort with the Dutch flag on the right and the North Sea in the background. Black bird relaxes on the roof.
A beautiful ARO 244, Spotted in China in northeast Beijing. The good old ARO was sadly in a poor shape and abandoned to elements. Happily, it wasn’t completely dead yet so a dedicated ARO fanatic with time and money on his hands should be able to restore it.
The Beijing AutoEC180 is a popular small electric crossover for China. I met this dusty white example on a parking lot in the south of the capital. It comes with crossy things like black wheel arches, black bumpers, mud guards fore and aft, and proper roof rails. It also has blue lights lenses and a blue badge.
A first generation Ford Taurus L wagon, Spotted in China on the Beijing Tuning Street. The good old Ford was dirty and dusty but overall in a reasonable shape and completely original down until the wheel covers and antenna. License plates are of Liaoning Province.
A sweet silver Brilliance Junjie Wagon, Spotted in China in the great city of Jinan in Shandong Province. The brilliant Brilliance was in pretty fine shape but in need of a good cleanup. It is totally original bar for the wind deflectors on the doors.
A dusty Nissan Fengshen Bluebird EQ7200 SSS, Spotted in China in the great city of Jinan in Shandong Province. The old ‘Bird was clearly neglected but it didn’t seem to be abandoned. It was just very dirty and it had some not-too serious damage on the front fender.
An incredible clean Toyota Century V12 sedan, Spotted in China on the far east of Beijing. The Century was in a perfect shape, looking far more distinguished than any other car on the road. The second generation G50 Century was manufactured from 1997 until 2016.
It has the Range Rover name on the bonnet, a Range Rover grille, a Land Rover badge, and it looks like a Range Rover Evoque. But it isn’t. This instead is a Landwind X7, a clone of the Evoque, fitted with fake badges and painted in a classy light gold.
