Bus of Britain

Recommended Posts

I love those latest Stagecoach "Bus of Britain" adverts, they are an ironic parody based heavily on "Little Britain", though it really brings Home the message as to why I for one will not travel on Public transport, I mean who wants to pay to make a journey sat next to a flatulant eco warrior or an old rip thats spent to long under a Sun lamp :lol: I think I would rather continue to pay through the nose for fuel and enjoy the pleasure of my own company and space :wink:

Shite isn't really a derogatory term on this board though.A couple of years ago I went from Dundee to London by Megabus for £1. Imagine my delight when the bus that turned up was a very battered 1989 Leyland Olympian with a strong smell of exhaust fumes inside. Luckily it transpired that the Leyland was only going to Glasgow and then we would be transferred to a brand new Neoplan. The Neoplan was so quiet and smooth that you couldn't tell it was moving unless you looked out of the window. I think I experienced the shitest and the best Stagecoach had to offer on that journey.

That A60 that falls off the transporter in The Italian Job can't have been more than 8 years old, and was probably a lot newer, but it has massive holes in its sills.I believe NAN404D really did belong to the Pakistani Ambassador and he really didn't know they had it.

Interesting to check out DVLA's records on some of the reg numbers:

HMP729G - Bizarrely this is carried by a 1999 Mazda MX-5 :shock:

OEG 103G - despite being ramp rolled in the film, the registration is on a Red 1986 Austin Mini Mayfair declared SORN till 29 02 2008

848 CRY - licence due 01 05 08

 

619 DXX was the black hardtop E-type, DVLA says taxed till end Nov '08.

163 ELT - also taxed till end Nov

 

So perhaps they didn't trash as many cars as it would appear in the film!!

They certainly didn't trash the Aston.

It's actually a Lancia (I think) mocked up to look like the Aston Martin. It's not a bad job but it's a left hooker with a different colour of interior and a completely different style of number plate.
