I have a picture somewhere of a family friend whose surname is Ford, standing next to a Focus that is in turn parked by a river ford on a road in Kent.

 

 

There's a road a town over from me called Blandford Street and I'm waiting to spot some sort of Ford parked by the sign so I can take a picture.

Most of the roads round here start with 4 so this shouldn't be too hard.

Quote from SABRE

The A405 was originally planned to be part of an orbital road encircling all of London.

It currently runs from Watford to St Albans so I'm not ruling it out but won't be making a special journey ( or really wanting to get out of the car for long).

The B405 is in Kensington.

If Astra Street was in South Wales it might be possible to limp the purple heap down there but it's location in New South Wales makes this somewhat unlikely to happen.

There is a Discovery Street in Aylesbury which sounds like the most achievable if it wasn't for the minor point that my Discovery hasn't moved in 18 months.

I live in Milton Keynes which is laid out on a grid system with Vertical roads numbered V1 to V11 and Horizontals H1 to H9 ( I think).
Trouble is the expansion would have to reach somewhere near Cambridge before I'll be able to take a picture of my Volvo on the V70.

There is a place where houses cost less then cars so all the roads are named after car makers.

I’m not going down to Bracknell to take a picture of my car on the A330.

Instead, here’s a picture of an Audi.
It’s not on the A6 but that doesn’t matter...
