Lightning At The Side Of The Road

Post by jaymer15 »

Here I am driving home along the A46 from Bath. I've just passed over junction 18 of the M4 heading towards Stroud and I pass an empty lorry depot just before the turn off to Chipping Sodbury. To my surprise I see a Lighting parked next to the entrance missing it's tail. Wasnt there this morning. Does anyone out here know why it's there?

Could it be XM173 which was seen on a low-loader on Sunday ? :- viewtopic.php?f=10&t=45739&p=455575#p455575

Yes. It does look like it. Can't see the reg number where it is. It's not easy to stop and look because the road is very busy. The only place to stop and look is the entrance to the site.

Just found out the Lightning in question maybe about to be put on display outside Sir James Dyson factory in Malmesbury.
