Thumbs up Re: How did you choose ...

As you come off the A13 to enter Rainham there are these "Signs" that display various numbers that represent various things. One night on my way home from my Photographic Society, I pulled off the slip road and took this, thinking I would make an Avatar from it.

My car, Marlin Berlinetta, essentially a 1973 Mark 3 Cortina in a different box.
My other one's a Landrover plus a couple of motorbikes and a mountain bike that needs a new engine.
