Hi All ,
As a complete NEWBY on Rumcars the cartoon reminded me of scary experience I had when coming home one evening in my beloved black Heinkel MAP 110 .
Turning left into the Aldwych I ( THE CAR WITH ME IN IT I MEAN ) was rolled completely over by a coach coming across Waterloo bridge . It was dark & I assumed that as the car was black the coach did not see me. At the time policemen were kind & helpful , this was a few years ago . The police righted my car on its 3 wheels , picked up my side window , which had popped out , & followed me driveing the car , back to Dads workshop at the Elephant where he put the window back in .I think I last an indicator too. It was too quick to be very afraid but I did say a quick prayer , just in case !
The moral of this story being that you are seldom hurt in a Heinkel because they bounce !
The other joy was always parking . I worked at Covent Garden before the days of all the parking restrictions ( mid 60's )
And the market men would say " Dont worry Luv we'll give it a shove or lift it , if its in the way "
Halcyon days of Bubbles & motoring & YES where are those pics Marcus ?
Cheers All Jackie
