You were not far off with my location. I am in the centre of a village called Babell in Flintshire.


Thanks David. How does the Black Lion Inn sound ?

Thanks Andy. I think I found somewhere appropriate for you in Tunbridge Wells ;) .

Thanks Johan. I've sent Scott a PM, but haven't heard from him yet.

Thanks Tom. By my calculations that would put you somewhere near the Shawnessy Centre. Hope that's OK.

Holy smokes, we have Sherlock among us. :lol: With all the suburban neighbourhoods in the area, you picked the right one. That's amazing. :o I think Scott lives on the east side of the city, I just can't remember where exactly.

I would appear to be a bit too far south west - people in Greasby are a totally different breed! I'm in the top North East corner of Wirral in New Brighton

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Sorry about that Murat !

I found the 'Regina Revue' Gentlemen's Club at Cumhuriyet Caddesi just down the street from Taxim Square, so thought you might be happier there instead ;) .

At least you're 'free' now Andy :lol: I noticed there's an Audi Cabrio on the Dowding Street passing by the KIA dealer, so maybe not so bad after all. Like some may have noticed, I am at the Huddle House, one step away from prison :lol: There's even a hobo passing by on a bicycle in the streetview :P And trucks in every direction...

Thanks again to Ian for doing this, should continue to be fun :)

My information said it was the premises of 'Motorline Volkswagen'. I figured with the Scirocco you'd have been there once or twice ;) .

Next option is Martin's Volks Werks Limited on North Farm Road. Am I getting closer ?

Other side of the road is VW

Try John Bowles VW on the other side of the railway - that's my mate's garage and he sees the Scirocco more often than he would like. And he's getting good at Alfas too :lol:

My new digs are in a huge cathedral. Pretty grand (actually designed by the architect who designed the U.S. Supreme Court building and the world's tallest building in 1913). As I PM'd Ian, that's a good location – just down the street from me. However, the archbishop there and several Minnesota priests have been in the national news lately. It seems there's been some cover-ups and shady dealing regarding pedophile priests in the archdiocese. Ah, there goes the neighborhood. :roll:

I am sure he is quite happy with the Sciroccos visits - after all nothing like having a reliable ( :P ) stream of income when you are self employed :lol:

I asked Ian to move me out of my Moms basement and place me in my current hometown. Right now I am sitting in a brand new Sheetz Gas Station.

He's never happy to see it. It's so low it has been chocked up to get the ramp arms under it ;)
But it's so reliable that it visits every April for its MOT and a service. Proper German engineering ;)

After I keep looking at the map and wondering who are the closest 2 members, then realised it's myself and Dave (VX1054) as we're only about a mile apart. I see he hasn't been added yet, providing if he wants to be added that is.

I've sent him a PM Steve, but he hasn't replied. Since your close, can you just call around to his place and remind him were waiting on his reply :) . In the meantime, I'll tentatively add him next to you - is that a mile north, south, east or west ?
