Saw a nice one today in Bicester...

Palladium Silver (of course ), SLK200 with sport pack on a '60' plate. Seemed like a pleasant chap driving it. We both arrived at a roundabout at the same time friendly waves all round, but he carried on towards Oxford and we took the Aylesbury road....

Nope... He was driving out of Bicester towards Oxford and we were coming into Bicester on the Middleton Stoney road...

We live near the Cheshire Outlet Village, so that usually takes the brunt of our shopping appetite...

I was going to mention that the USAF had heavies there at one point. Did your bunker have its own Squadron? Wink

Anyone near RAF Kinloss, St Mawgan or Waddington?
Ditto NAS Moffet Field or Barber's Pt.?
Old stomping grounds.

Only another Canuck can appreciate it I guess! Despite sun and 10C, a very nice silver SLK (no badge) was driving top up in Geneva this morning crossing the Mont-Blanc bridge at 9am (member?).
