Currently sat in a local garage for the GL to go through its MOT, they have this poster up!

Never been here before but it's the closest garage to work and needs must, but with fine art like this up I might become a regular haha

I'd be worried just exactly what one would be polishing if one prefers to hide under the car to do it...... :lol:
