So if you're arranging two consecutive days out, does that mean a stop over in between???
It does - in Lower Slaughter (other bucolic villages are available)

Stock exchange split

Is it not about time to split the stock exchange in to 'for Sale' and 'wanted' sections ?

As the car gets older and parts more scarce, its an ideal way to keep the cars going...
