Time: Around 12:30pm Tuesday 29th June

Place: Currie Motors, Parts/Service dept, Isleworth (nr Heathrow)

What: Nice Black 120 series, '53 reg IIRC. GG AT2s all round and Safari Snorkel. A few "South Africa" stickers on the back too. No other stickers that I noticed.... ;)

Who: ? A chap, about 6ft, in black (smart) trousers and yellow shirt chatting to one of the salesman......

P.S. They had a very nice Silver 70 series parked round the side with what looked like a set of brand new Yoko Geolander ATs on..... :cool:

Are you sure?
I know I wouldn't admit to having a yellow shirt. Nor smart black trouser for that matter!

Actually I thought it might be you and was going to ask but when I looked round after joining the queue for parts, you had gone!

I work near Heathrow at the moment and often get OEM bits from there....I ordered some clips for the facia (radio surround) that have been broken for ages but I have never bothered to replace.

P.S. The "Yellow" shirt was actually more a pastel yellow rather than a Hi-Vis type! ;)

Pastel??? This goes from bad to worse.

Next you'll be telling me he's a Bulls supporter and a man-bag aficionado!

Well then, a public flogging. Thanks Chad :|

No, skirt was no a slip :oops: (It was a joke though before anyone gets any ideas...)

Just after you came past us I left. Duty called :(


On the whole dealer thing, Simon, the guy I was talking to, is a friendly and very helpful guy.

I don't think it was open as I don't recall seeing the interior.....or any stickers apart from the SA ones. I must admit it's quite a tight car park, so I probably wasn't paying too much attention to the finer details as I drove past.
