Classic Plant errors

is it just me who finds it annoying when the machine description doesn't match the photo?

Re: Massey Ferguson 500 and 515

Are the 6.354 engines sort after? It's a real shame combines aren't as "collected" as vintage tractors. I can't say I've ever seen a vintage combine at a show come to think of it. Problem with combines is the size of them and moving them around, not so sure many show organisers would want...

Re: Didcot Power Stations Finest Off For Scrap

thing is though the Greeks had a referendum the other week, only to have the Germans turn it around.......so whats to say they won't do the same here?
