I'll have to confess, i was rather on a mission not to have the same shots as everyone else gets from the conservatoire, why bother, there must be thousands of pictures on the net, and most sets look the same. so, erm, here is an alternative? angle;


Moody driving pictures

Image

Moody Evo 4tc picture (and you all thought i was mad! think it came out interesting in the end!)

Image

Arguably the strangest corner of the museum

Image

Dinky Cars

Image

Secret rendezvous

Image

I might add that my camera is pretty naff (well it was free!) so there not amazing, but i'm quite happy with them!

A few more (of the millions taken) are here;

If you see any of these men do not approach them. Ring the Police immediately. Repeat, do NOT approach them. They are armed and dangerous. :shock:

Have you trimmed your speedo needle Mat? Looks tiny!

Those do look like three propa dodgy geezers - especially the one in the black top :)

The Mr. Bump t-shirt really finishes it off, I imagine the picture on the t-shirt shows exactly what will happen if you mess with him :shock:

If you watch Ronin, there's a great chase scene along the banks of the Seine, plenty of Citroen action, including a BX getting sideswiped by a 5 series Beemer.
