One of the warmest mornings of the year and the hood is up? :? Might have been fortunate looking at the mess.

GTC makes Kent Today website for crashing into Subway

A police spokesman said: "We called at 8.52am on Monday 25 June 2018 to reports that a vintage car (Reliant Scimitar) had collided with the shop at Dover South Service Station (BP garage) on Limekiln Street, Dover.

"Kent Fire & Rescue Service have made the scene safe and SECAMB attended as the driver was reported to have had minor injuries.

"The service station is currently closed, but traffic on the A20 is not affected."

" Vintage" ? i.e 1930 or before.
Police are so young now so a GTC must seem about 90 years old to them I guess :wink:

Good to see its recently involved in club events. The register would seem to indicate otherwise :oops: Quite a distance from home if it's still in the same ownership.

Hopefully given it's condition and therefore value, it will be repaired. Also wishing the occupants a speedy recovery from what was probably a traumatic incident.
