I really liked that shot. In my early teens I crossed it almost every weekend. Can't help you with the car, I'll ask my other half later. To me all cars with fins from that era look like zodiacs! *hopeless* :)

Peace.

Superb pic, though of course the big bridge in the background is much better...

As Billy Connelly says in his world tour of Scotland. One is the Forth road bridge, the other is just the Forth Bridge.

Peace.

I'm sure you'll agree that this particular subject deserves more than just pictures, so if it's ok, i have done the honours, and will post in small threads at a time...the story of the Forth Bridge.
