British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

I've got a bad feeling about Ebbro. They haven't posted any new models on their site in a long time. I really hope I'm wrong!!! :cry:

Nice photography!Shows how confused Toyota were about the designing direction of Avensis.One car is totally different to the other.

I think Toyota likes to keep the same name. Here they have used Camry and Corolla forever no matter how many times they re do the cars.
I am sure there are 2 schools of thought on this.

Nice pics!

Thanks :) Toyota indeed seems to keep the names long time in use, before the Avensis, their car in this class was called Carina and the 1st Avensis has similar style to the last Carina E.
Corolla is probably the longest lasting name in Japanese cars, probably the most well known and best selling Japanese car of all time. They renamed the Corolla hatchback to Auris but the Sedan is still called Corolla and I hope the Corolla name stays forever :)
Talking about Japan, very sad to see what the earthquake & tsunami have done there, appearantly it's the biggest earthquake ever in Japan :(
