Rally - Autosport Int
Arriving at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham this morning, I didn't even get out of the car park before bumping into one of our lot. But John Morrison had more than idle chatter on his mind. When he arrived yesterday he stumped up the ten quid car park fee to park his jalopy, but when he got to the Brian James Trailers stand they had a Trade Pass and free Car Park sticker for him. So where was he going when I saw him? To get yesterday's ten quid back! You can take the Scot out of Scotland, but you can take the thrift out of spendthrift - at least when Mr Morrison and needless expense are involved.
