This museum didn’t exist when I lived in Cyprus :D

Apparently it’s in Limassol.

Found the pictures on Facebook and it reminded me of the very similar museum in Malta (that also has a 5a).

Indeed - I thought it was the same museum, when I saw that photo! It's part of a whole bunch of red cars in the Malta one, if I remember correctly?

I think you might be thinking of the red room at Haynes, Sparkford?

Right-click the photo and select 'open image in a new tab' will show you a clear photo in a new tab on the window :D

not on an iPad it doesn’t :D

I have hundreds of photos on here linked from PB and although I occasionally do some, I don’t have time to resave them all or find them on my old backup hard drives and replace them all - and I’m going to Malta in October anyway :D
