I think the coupe in question belongs to Vito aka Gaz and the plate is 800KYX if memory serves correctly. Right colour, right body, most of the right plate and was probably on his way to a Travelodge or similar near Peterborough :

You can see his avatar shows his coupe from the front with the plate just about visible.

Gaz, travelodge!!! How very dare you sir.

I reckon on his way to some castle or Manor for his overnight rest. Am I right Gaz?

And what's this about sunburn on the neck? Too much time in the bar in Portugal then. :lol:

The description gave it away Gaz - due to several unforeseen circumstances i couldn't make it to P'boro this year but didn't know until the last minute. Next year is already being planned though!

Alright, alright, a generic hotel of the short stay variety mainly for business commuters who only need to stop a night or two.

Other hotel chains (besides Travelodge) are also available.................... :lol: :lol: :lol:
