How about a little taskette just for interest Jim

See if you can get an original of this from your visit.....it should be attached to a very stylish coupe in my opinion.

The red room could be a good place to start!

Then again you could provide a bit of classic car snooker with your favourite Red/Yellow/Green/Brown/Blue/Pink and Black! oh and the Cue Ball of Course, which could be ivory or white or at a push cream!

But are any Brown Cars preserved in such museums!

Regards Neil

PS and when armed with your hoard of pictures then scatter them among a few topics! As well the classics spotting topic....

You will see a notice to spot! (I like the Wolseley neon sign if it's still there)
You will see a Nice 2-tone
You may even Spot an Electric Car
If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of a Nice Pair!
There may be an Interesting/Awful Camper
There may be some Tartan Travel Rugs and other Motoring Accessories
You may have something to put in room 101

and there could be a whatsthisthen? with an unusual angle shot or a bit of bumper!

I come from Northern Ireland where everyone likes cricket. Lots of hills there so a good few cricket pitches are near rivers where the ground is flatter. These rivers make excellent beer coolers all you need is an onion bag....

Well done Jim, Roger and out!

(notice I haven't made the cringeworthy faux pas of using "Roger, over and out!" Over and out are obviously mutually exclusive!)

Apparently somebody put a Black Hole into Room 101. There was a disagreement between them, and Room 101 won!

This little item is being thrown in just as a precaution. Came across it when querying a Hazard Lights Not working problem on my bargainbasement Clio.

Thankfully my "problem" of the hazards not working at all, but direction indicators fully functional, was cured by a simple disconnecting and reconnecting the switch after a bit of cleaning with electrical contact cleaner.

But that didn't stop me looking at other threads where a little abbreviation UCH was used and big money to sort out seemingly trivial problems with basic electrical functions like the hazard lights failing to turn off!

So in goes Unite Centrale Habitacle just in case :-D
