This is one of those threads that a gentle read from the start could be as entertaining as the television. Of course the 5 second scan of the latest post may bring a hint of recognition and even stimulate a comment, a response, and occasionally spark off a proper join-ey-in conversation.

One "new" one...
Only 86 pence at the time...the Tell-U-Log

Yes this particular accessory has had an airing on the thread before, but quite a nice in the wild spot today.

The car it was attached to was an absolute beauty.

And..from the accessories point of view a nice display of the makers name

This could go in the 'Whatisthisthen?' thread, and it could also go in one of the other threads, but as it's a bit of a nostalgic motoring icon - I'll put it here.
So, for 5 points - what's in the envelope ? :)

Very sharp of you, James. 5 points duly awarded :-D
Although I've seen many AA and RAC keys in my time, I've never seen one still sealed in its envelope*. :)

It was an educated guess. I recall, a very long time back, when Mum got her AA membership, her going to the car with a sealed envelope.
