    Default Do people in Scotland hate their cars.......

    On my recent road trip to Scotland, one thing I couldn't help but notice is the amount of cars with a whooping yellow ARNOLD CLARKE sticker on the back. Obvisiouly AC have quite a strong hold up in those parts of the world, but do people really hate their cars that much??? The sticker would be the first thing to be removed. Just cant get over how many people leave them on.

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    That's 'cos anyone that cares about their car knows that the last thing they want on it is a free advert for AC! lol

    They do seem to have huuuge areas of the country stitched up. I remember when I was up visiting family in Fife recently I noticed the same - loooads of cars with the yellow AC stickers in.

    EDIT: Just remembered I'd posted up about it in the past too.
