The Longbridge photos are bitter sweet. All those people working there, long hours churning out cars that were sold instantly. Imagine the noise of the place.

Now it's a housing estate to be, starter homes filled with Chinese made shit, foreign car on the drive and a World of Tat superstore up the road. :(

My daily hack back in 2003, I'd just arrived at work... it had the full union jack on the roof when I bought it but one of my workmates removed some of the vinyl one day while I was down at Bletchley shunting stone wagons...!
