while driving WEST along the A 14 between newmarket and cambridge at lunchtime today i passed 6 container lorries marked up with the m.g. badge and chinese characters.
the reason i highlighted west is this. the A14 is the main east /west route from hawich and felixstowe docks if you want to take goods to the midlands and the north.
these were definately heading towards the midlands,so its possible its stuff thats come from china.
i thought it intresting so i thought i would post it up for you all to see.

Incidentally, just outside Small Heath, there are a dozen or so blue and white 20' steel containers sitting overlooking the railway line from Snow Hill toward Warwick, marked variously 'Rootes Group Limited', 'Hillman' and 'Chrysler UK Limited'.

They look like they've been there for years... decades perhaps, but a little piece of British industrial history nonetheless.

Regards

John

First ones were made about 1 month ago and the press anouncement was timed to go with the signing ceremony yesterday but I don't think its possible for a ship to get here in that time! Must have been something else you saw.

NAC's Logo:



Blue disc with white writting is in english.
Red script is in chinese.
Looks a little different in print though - 南汽

As can be seen, in chinese it is two characters.

With all due respect Windy, that Chinese writing could say 'Golden Honk Chinese Take Away' and I'd still be none the wiser :err:

Are you sure you havent got it wong? :gfight:
Of course it is wrong, Nanjing don't just make cars - they make Trucks, Buses, SUV's etc so "Automobile" is the correct word not "Car"!
:gfight:

South is correct but then, that is the meaning of the name "Nanjing"!
