Yes, I was always tickled by the Osborne Road thing. And the fact that when Dennis drops Ally and Vicki at the airport in Return of the Seven Part 1, the X77 bus is plastered with advertisements for "Patterson's"

I need some slippers, and some soap

https://www.taxdisc.direct.gov.uk/EvlPo ... ution=e2s1

if you know reg and make this link will tell you if it is taxed and when it was due for renewal

http://www.askmid.com/ this site will tell you if a vehicle is insured.

this might help you find out if it is still on the road.
