The place was dead today, even with it being a Monday! Car parks 1/4 to a 1/3 full!

I remember seeing that about 10 years ago when the centre had just opened, so I guess its on permanent display. Belonged to the wife of the developer or something I think... there's a plaque nearby

The car has been there since the centre opened.

WikiPedia says:
"Portraits running around the top of the walls of the mall depict members of the Whittaker family, founders of owner Peel Holdings. A Mercedes car belonging to the mother of Peel Holdings' chairman, John Whittaker, is on display on the first floor mall outside F. Hinds."
