Default This is a long shot - Services M42

On a family trip to Scotland via York we stopped at services on the M42 in the Tamworth (?) area.

I spotted a chap next to his silver 75 and went over to chat.

He'd seen me come in and said mine was the second Moonstone green 75 he'd seen that day and was nice enough to say mine was cleaner than the first one so not the same one.

He told me he always bought diesels, never paid more than a few hundred pounds for one and was on his fourth one as he did a lot of mileage as he used it for work and I think he said his company paid for his fuel?

We were having a nice chat and he was telling me what problems to look out for when my missus came back from the services and wanted to go.

Anyone know the chap as I'd like to thank him for some of the advice he gave me, especially about electrical gremlins.

Cheers, Mac

Although that's only half a dozen miles from me, it wasn't me, mine's green .

Had I known you could have popped in for a cuppa with me - for free

Nice one.

Must be something in the water up there. 75 owners are so nice there.

Or are we all generally!


Something else I remember, the 75 owner was on his lunchbreak with a colleague who was parked next to him who also drove his own car which was a Vauxhall I think.
