Rootes Birmingham

I have just found and uploaded this picture on my Flickr pages, although it is of a BMMO S6 on Lower Temple St, just turning into Stephenson St, there is clearly a Rootes Dealership on the corner.

Lower Temple St. Shakespeare Pub and Temple Bar In the basement. Temple Bar was a Mod hang out. I used to go in there on a regular basis. Wash my Purple Hearts or French Blues down with a Black Velvet. Alcohol and Speed not a good combination but did it give me some confidence to pull the Totty.
