    Went to the RAF museum at Hendon a few weeks ago, first time I’d seen a Lancaster. Magnificent machine.

    Margate in the early 80s. Dreamland was sold to Bembom Brothers in 1981, so can’t be before that although cars look like the 70s. I remember going to Dreamland many times in the 70s when it still opened at night .

    I also caught the 19A home from school but not going as far as Hoo. As far as I remember , there were no school contracted buses in Medway, you got a free season ticket for the normal service bus.
    I think route 19A started at Gillingham depot and went through all the Medway towns en route. There was also a 19 that only went as far as Hoo village and a 19B that went to Lodge Hill barracks.

    You are right. The majority of the posts in this thread, scams aside, are because a considerable majority of the population is completely brain dead. Thinking is just too painful for them, so they don’t bother.

    I doubt if mine lasted until 97. I got rid in 91, it wasn’t in the best shape then.

    I’m not sure that’s penny pinching rather than a clever bit of engineering.

    So wrong ! Where do you start.? Can’t even get Reliant Robin in the right order.
    I can only assume Ferrari’s legal bids are too busy laughing to actually stop them calling it a Ferrari.
