  1. 7EC6975B-AE2F-442E-BAF8-845D82E00CA5.jpeg Just seen this book for sale in the Aldi UK catalogue for fathers day.
    I suspect that a few of us will end up owning a copy on the day.

    I saw that book by chance in "Better Read than Dead"; a wonderful bookshop within the Sydney suburb of Newtown, a year or two ago.

    It's a story about a Ladybird, who goes to Figure of 8 Race.
    The front page is a representation of the cars , in the middle of the track, crossing each other. You need to read it to see what happened next!
    I don't think I'd be giving too much away, by pointing out to you the Rover is just far enough ahead not to damage it's rear wing. So it's a save read. Unless you like the golden car; in that case don't read it.

    Can any one identify the other cars?

    I'd say a Mustang, Vauxhall Viva, Cadillac Eldorado and Ford Capri. Do I win a prize?!

    Hmmm, now that's a challenge, 2 posts is a lot to ask for in this day and age, but remember, 2 wrongs dont make a right so I have a bit of leeway? as in 2 ships passing in the night! :D
