Nice AEC Matador artillery tractor converted to recovery lorry too. It doesn't look too aerodynamic to me.........

Minus the observatory above, I use the road regularly. The view overlooking Rudyard lake you can never get bored of :D

Price per gallon. Also looks like some people have traded in their junk BL stuff for a nice new fangled Japanese car

Priests of Chesham in the mid 70s, originally BMC then Leyland, where I was well known to the Parts Dept and spent all my hard earned to support my Cooper. As in the photo, they supplied the local St. Christopher Driving School (still going today) who managed to get me through my test first time…….not sure how.
When Leyland folded they swapped to Ford and are still there today. Needless to say, having never been a Ford fan, I don’t visit any more!

Actually, looking at the registrations, this must have been 1981 rather than mid 70s …. oops 🫢

Good to see a picture of Priests of Chesham.

I too used to be a customer prior to emigrating. I also passed my driving test with St Christopher driving school in a Mini Metro!
