I was hoping for a double-whammie as we spent some time following the car around town and then spent some time being followed too, alas no luck. Instead, on the driveway with the windows and sunroof open, unlocked.

They're Cordis products. Cordis is a Johnson & Johnson Cy. I'm working for Pendracare though, but we're doing some projects for Cordis cause we all worked there till almost a year ago when they decided they could do without us. How wrong they were. :lol:

This is our old house in Troon - Google maps haven't updated the satellite/aerial photo for about 10 years. We moved out in august 1999 but it still shows my MGC and Citroen BX diesel.

Just caught up with this thread. Goodle Earth dont appear to have done my road, though most of the other roads around my area have.

This is all you can see of mine - Note the picture is well out of date as I had the old mk1 827Si which is long gone now:

Image

On the other hand, my cousin got caught by the camera car in his old Rover 25 (He's now got a Corsa, the Rover suffered HGF)

Image
Image

He didnt know about it until I recently told him, he saw the car and presumed it was from a TV station.

:lol:

I looked on street view and only about once in the last few years there hasn't been a Rover parked on the drive, and would you believe it they took the picture one weekend when I had cleared the cars and there is a nice photo of a skip on my drive :)

A couple of the Sterling on street view. The camera car must have been round when I was working nights last summer, as my wife had the Pug 306 at the time, and as it's not there, she must have been at work. Also, there are no kids about!!!

It was also before the council came round to put weedkiller on the kerbs!!

There are loads of different views of my street available.....

This is my first 800, my miserable but mega-miles 825 diesel. 330k on the clock, this picture must have been taken during the week it was laid up with a knackered water pump.

Hpoe it swings back soon to take a picture of my new one! :D

Yeah, but you should've seen it - i think it felt every single one of them :)

The true number may have even been higher, because the speedo only intermittently showed the right speed - it was usually wavering from 0-50 in big arcs when you were doing a steady 70ish. As a consequence, on one of my 200 mile journeys to Reading, it only recorded 120 of them!
