European route E75. 4,380 kilometres long it starts at Vardø in Norway, runs south through Finland, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, North Macedonia, and Greece. The road ends after at the town of Sitia on eastern end of the island of Crete in the Mediterranean Sea.

It is the most southerly point reached by an E-road.

Anyone that has owned a VAG diesel will know about the N75 valve and its issues

You'll have to click the link, as someone seems a bit assertive about copyright.

75 appears twice in that picture.

I didn't mean I was having trouble posting a link. On the whole page that comes from there's a message about copyright and no use without permission. OK, we're not trading with it, but I thought I'd leave it like that.

75mph is the half-decent national m-way speed limit here in Spain (120km/h).

Well done to all contributors and viewers, just the type of thread I enjoy and thanks to Mick for starting it off.
The FCF is a great forum to join in with.

Now if I'm not mistaken Mick, that milestone...…looks very much like...
Bath Road limestone shoulders by the A4, in parish of Marlborough (Kennet District), Bath Road, opp. chapel of Marlborough School, W of school bridge and pedestrian crossing, on well cut grass bank between footpath and wooden fence..

I read earlier today that there was a young Russian girl who dressed in an army uniform and stood barefoot on a bed of nails for 75 minutes to mark the VE75 day.
She was in agony after 45 minutes but stayed for the full 75 as "If they could endure the trials of war then I can endure this"
Wish I could remember where I saw it.
