The great car mystery

October 23rd, 2019 · Posted by Skuds in Life · No Comments · Life

In an effort to get more steps under my belt I have been walking a lot around the Manor Royal estate. It is supposed to be an industrial estate but the definition of industry is quite loose because you soon notice that a lot of it is given over to retail, specifically the retail of motor cars.

Just within the BID area we have main dealers for Ford, Suzuki, Mazda, VW, Mitsubishi, Peugeot, Hyundai, Lexus, Kia, Nissan, Caterham, Vauxhall, Mercedes, Jaguar, Land Rover, Toyota, Citroen and Tesla – sort of. Tesla burnt down but might be back. Elsewhere in town we have a big BMW dealer in Three Bridges, Audi in Maidenbower, and Honda in Northgate. If four wheels is too many then there is also P&H who are main dealers for Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Ducati and KTM motorbikes. I may have missed one or two.

And what is the big mystery? There are at least 21 makes of car with a main dealer in Crawley. Fiat is not one of them, so why the bloody hell is it that you can’t cross a road without seeing one of those horrible Fiat 500s every time?
