Zorro, Gringo and Zappata riding through an again surprisingly Ford dominated Munich.

I remember that Diermeier was a huge dealership, but not that they had practically cornered the market.


Obviously possessing superior knowledge of all things automotive, finding contradicting everything on here as some form of game, which some find pretty tedious, but sadly not tedious enough to just fuck off as a consequence.

Stroud town centre 1693; a recently hanged stormtrooper's head still hanging from the public gibbet. The high price of gammon had caused an insurrection by rebel forces.

I guess that's Aston bus station, but before my time. I recognise the bus services as I used them for several years, but not until they were orange over brown two-tone (& later Stagecoach, or Maynes at the weekend!)


Not far off, it's Stalybridge. The (faux?) timber frame building in the background is still there today but it's a different colour now.

Done with chopping and changing. Next car I buy will be a '78 Caprice Classic.
