Now why can't buses be that pretty and stylish today? Those Bedford SBs are positively gorgeous :D

Such a difference from the horrid, ugly square things we get today :(

Bit of a fascinating fact I came across to slip in when conversation lulls at a cocktail party...

The original Bedford "Griffin" didn't carry a flag

Then it got a "B" and a flag

Before it got the corporate "V"

Saw quite a nice Renault Captur the other day sort of bronze with cream on top, and here's another modern 2-tone.

Its also a very fast and very expensive 2-tone, and as well as being a 2-tone, its a 2-motor :)
The i8’s performance is quite frankly astonishing for a car with a three-cylinder engine. Generating 227bhp from the petrol part of the hybrid-drive system and 129bhp from an electric motor it can deliver a 0-60 time of just 4.4 seconds......

Take that extraordinary fuel economy figure of 134mpg with a pinch of salt. The standardised EU test leans heavily in favour of hybrid cars and few buyers will replicate the profile of it in normal driving...
I am not a great fan of the "supercar", and an A30 Van is more likely to turn my head to be honest, but there is no doubt that this grabs your attention.

May not be the same one but there was one of those floating around Team Valley last time I was there.

I go exactly like that after a period in the sun... If I am well enough later for a bike ride I'll definitely look like that at the end of today!

My step father was a lucky sod. After a day in the sun he looked like a boiled lobster. The following day he looked like he was hewn from mahogany!

Don't I know it. I got terribly sunburned in Cyprus a few times...

Been out for a decent bike ride today and I really, really ought to have splashed the old factor 50 all around my exposed bits.

Against that though I won't half of generated some vitamin D :wink:
