If it smells of oil or Petrol ...its in the shed.

One of these shops I used to frequent was Trophy Autos of Coventry, I had got quite friendly with the young man who ran the shop, and after a bit of coaxing let me have this battered old poster Exclaiming " Triumphs are rolling again " I have often wondered if its rare because I have never come across another one. Of course now I am sensibly grown up and responsible I still find myself addicted to old Motor Cycles, oily parts and long hours in the Shed.... I just have three pairs of jeans.

Is the Motor Cycle a Sunbeam? I guess the only way to find out is for me to add the Dispatch Riders to my winter Reading list.

When I was just a lad and had to travel on public transport the usual method was West Midland Passenger Transports fleet of double Decker buses. However there was an alternative, and that was a company called Midland Red who ran a fleet of bright red coaches, but I don't ever recall a Midland Red Double Decker
I am rather proud of being in the right place at the right time ( John Peel ) and capturing this lovely old Bus
sitting on a box junction turning right on Corporation Street Coventry....and with no modern cars around to spoil the effect. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midland_Red
