Infiniti is dead in Europe.

Metro with what appears to be a Twin Turbo LS. Looks like a complete body swap. Bet that shifts well, though I’m not sure of the practicality.

So much winning.

A big blow to Swindon. Workers at BMW are probably worrying too. 

Looks like there might be another U.K. Airline on the brink. (Now confirmed) Looks like there might be another U.K. Airline on the brink. (Now confirmed)

BMI Regional, which in some ways is the last piece of the British Midland group, with it’s origins dating back to 1938 appears to be the latest U.K. airline to run into problems.

Here I go again on my Drone.

Hopefully it gets sorted out quickly this time.

No going back now! No going back now!

Luckily the arch profile is still good enough to use, so it’s mostly flat steel. Should be simple, at least all the filler has gone.

You’ll find me in front of the fire. No reason to move.

What a difference from last year. What a difference from last year.

Both from around the 10th of December. That wasn’t the worst of it for the season either. Roads are a sea of mud though, hence the filth.

Now that looks familiar! Now that looks familiar!
