Well some interest at last!..i have a few more...some of them are bad due to camera shake. I will try and post more. This is inside the transport museum in Coventry, outside London. They have amazing collection of classics and the cars which you outside are for sale, display etc. Owners of those keep a running descripton in case anyone is interested.
They have kept the supersonic thrustssc and a simulator for the same. Simulator was good. It shows how difficult it was to keep the machine in the white line.

Great pics. Loved the different types of Hillman cars on display. Well kept too. Also loved the memorabilia shop with the 66 type VW van and the Harley (or is it an Indian) and the Lambretta (or is it a Vespa/Piaggio??) More pics i fpossible please.

Very exciting indeed. Coventry is on my list of pilgramges to make some day. My Standard 10 and Triumph Tiger both have origins there.
