    Mmmm, nice pair of 206's.

    Wasn't there anything interesting knocking about?

    More 206's. We've got 'em coming out of our ears.

    Might want to see a doctor about that. I'm sure there's a salve of some kind available that'll clear it right up.

    In 1995 I was sent to the UK for some training on new machinery, there was a little training and a lot of partying, probably has something to do with the fact that I haven't been sent O/S since!
    Here are some of the vehicles spotted.


    This was one of the cars at our disposal, I much prefered the Vauxhall Cavalier!


    This was the street outside our hotel, I didn't have to wait long for the perfect shot.


    This was at some museum in Birmingham.


    Quick, the sun's out! Time for a cruise, in Hull peak hour traffic!


    ummh....this might have something to do we me not being sent O/S since!

    I have other shots of frogs that I'll have to dig up and post.
    Cheers Renomad

    I liked the place so much I went back in 2000.

    How dare you lower the tone of a thread which up until now has been one of cultured, yet slightly understated, sophistication.

    Yah, this pic did manage to add just the right amount of sophistication, didn't it?

    A few seconds later the guy went @rse ower t!t, and fell into the low bush on the right.
    The postman did the same thing a couple of hours later. Letters everywhere, and a bag full of snow.

    Highlight of my day.

    G'day,
    spotted on Google street view at Scratchwood Services, a 206. Possibly in the sights of the guns aboard HMS Belfast. http://findarticles.com/p/news-artic.../ai_n37599398/

    Default The Royal Carriage

    The black car is a MG Y type. Lovely little car, leather and wood, sunroof, built in jacking system etc. etc. Quite bizarre that it makes the Suzuki (is it?) in front look so big!
