I always imagined something interesting anyway, more power to you if you get by without wheels.

Two of us in another thread wanted Caterham Sevens, there really is something unique & special about British motoring in general I must say. My Saabs had engines sort of derived from Triumphs & those were amazing cars.

I love that car. It almost looks like a honey bee.

As much as I don't need to use the gas, I've always liked Land Rover. Getting a diesel Range Rover classic, Discovery or Defender would be great though.

I guess the Lotus Exige would be the wasp then.

I had no idea that Land Rover was a British company. I thought it was Canadian and they teamed up with the British company, Mini.

It would be cool for me to be living in a Routemaster in my parents driveway. That way, I'd be able to spend Christmas with them this year, because I'd be in their bubble.

These were the buses of my childhood, not routemasters. I liked them a lot, particularly the single decker ones, but was actually more interested in the tickets

The green buses remind me of the show "On the Buses"

My two closest friends can live in the bus with me.

Nowadays, you'll see a modern version of the routemasters. Been on them, somewhat comfortable up until it is summer when being inside feels like an oven.

I like the new ones as well. I was very impressed when they were put into use.

I've love to see a picture of a pea green Routemaster. That would be sweet. :mrgreen:

Most people count sheep at night. I count buses.
