Andy was that you??

I was at the M6/M69 traffic lights, before the M6S exit, and a black 55 came FLYING through the amber lights.
Couldn't catch the numberplate!!

Sounded great

If the rear number plate was slightly larger than standard, and if it was going like a rocket, then it probably was Andy ( @ZeroZero )!

Hi All




@U if this happen after Sat last weekend then no ,As my 55 is in for a front end re-spray . But I do only live down the road from the end of the M69 . It could have been JB popping in for a cup of his fav brew 'Yorkshire tea' on his way back from around the world





Cheers

It was actually this weekend just gone on Saturday! Was taking the Mrs to her mums by Ricoh hence coming off at M6S. If it wasn't you, I've gotta get one of these SLKWorld forums business cards to that guy but I'm gonna need to attach a jet engine to my boot to try catching up to the dude!
