I've always shy-ed away from naming my vehicles with the exception of my wife's old Ford Escort which was named "Norman" as it said "Norm" on the temperature gauge.

I noticed some on here have given there trucks Swahili name's
Twende = to go
Tembo = Elephant
Pumba = Warthog
and there's probably a few more.

After searching for ages on translation sites to come up with something original I drew a blank so I've decided to name my 110 "Brian" after Brian from the 70s TV show The magic roundabout.

Why, because it's a bit slow and when traveling the rear becomes my shell or home.

Does anybody know where I can get an .eps file of said snail ?

Well, a welcome to Brian the formerly nameless grey Defender then! If I come across a turtle image I will pass it along.

That's just not right.

That was one of the less explicit ones!

Better?
