VW Beetle, Ford Cortina 30S, and a Toyota Corolla Liftback of yesteryear... This Wheels24 reader started a #WhenLastHaveYouSeen hashtag on Instagram and we can't get enough of it.

Cape Town's Craig Jacobs has been an avid car enthusiast all of his life.

I recently came across one of his Instagram posts and realised he had posted several sightings of 'spotted' gems.
His hashtag is still relevantly young but I am quite sure it's going to grow.

Jacobs says: "To me, older cars do the same thing as familiar songs; it transports me back to specific memories in my past. Seeing daily driven older cars shows me that the owner has a bond with the car and I quite like that in our disposable society.

"I'm sure there are other people who feel the same, so I share what appeals to me with #whenlasthaveyouseen."

Here are some of his posts. For more, follow his hashtag on Instagram
