A mate had an oil tanker like the little Leyland above, his was known as a Clydesdale. Driver drove into the yard one day and instead of using the foot-brake, pulled the handbrake. Locked the back axle and on the wet (oily) cement, slide straight into a storage tank ..............
Oh, the memories ...............

Still there. Their Taxis run out of there and thinks it's used by other Haulage Cos and ODs
 
I had hoped to post some pics here today from a road run and gathering we were to attend, but had to turn for Home near Lichfield because I think my head gasket has blown again.

Bugger. :(:(

Not to a water gallery this time, just blowing smoke out. She drove home a treat but thought it best to head home. Very vexed.
