I'm sure a few people read that the Vauxhall Frontera has been driven to the top of Snowdon again.

Well that's not the only place...

Ummmmm.... What should I say here...

"It's a disgrace", "Hang the idiot who did this to OUR property", "It's a risk to the public, the train, the mountain, the cafe, the economy, the Welsh Language", "It beggars belief" et al.




I however think this is quite amusing, I shall chortly in a secret and undisclosed location.

I assume that's one of the later, Isuzu-type Fronteras, not the original "Cavalier-on-steroids" joke?

how about this? ... http://metro-novyafon.narod.ru/

They should have left the Frontera on Snowdon. Given the bodywork a good coating of salt and battery acid and let the fog and rain do the rest.
Couple of years there wouldn't be much left of it Big Grin

That'll have been from the last time I imagine.

Latest from the local news is that the police have arrested a 39 year old man. The owner/person who drove it up last time was 39 so I guess it's the same person.

In that case he really is a total idiot (of course just because NWP have arrested him doesn't mean it was actually him driving the second time).

Where was the underground picture taken Simon?

Rumbled Big Grin

If I'd put it a bit to the left I think the lighting would have been a little more realistic Laugh

If you had lightened the left hand side of the car, it would have been a touch more natural. The real giveaway was that I had seen a bigger picture, with the wheels at that angle. Weirdly, it was *on* a mountain, not in one though Wink

Charge was dangerous driving - but Snowdon isn't public highway, is it? Perhaps he should have found a better lawyer.
