    Spotted - neglected old merc in driveway

    While over in Edinburgh today looking at a couple of BMWs ( yes, I know ) I spotted an abandoned C class in a driveway on Ferry Road, when I looked closer I caught a glimpse of an older car tucked away in the corner. Had a wee look on Google Maps and it's on there too...

    Look what turned up on our driveway this morning!

    Found this on our driveway this morning. The tree surgeons use the PTO at the rear to drive their chipper - you wouldn't want to fall into that! Great use for an older vehicle.
