I have seen some strange sights in the service stations around Birmingham. A few years ago I espied a Dalek on a trailer. Lamentably, I failed to take a photograph. A few weeks ago, en route to a wedding, I saw something fairly odd. The engine of a car had evidently caught fire, but the driver had managed to stop it getting so out of control as to consume the rest of the car. Weirdly, the car seemed just to be sitting there, and to have been sitting there for a little while. I was in something of a hurry, so I never did establish the full story. I just present to you the odd photograph I had time to take.
