How about ‘Gary’?Warwickshire County Council is seeking name suggestions from residents for their five new gritters.
The new gritters, which are low-emission models, will be helping to maintain roads across Warwickshire this winter.
The council is now seeking help from residents to give the new gritters names, which will be displayed on each of the new vehicles.
Straight out of Thunderbirds or Stingray!I've been going past this building a lot over the past couple of weeks, ferrying M to and from her iGCSE sittings. I'm very much enjoying the retro-future vibes from it. Saigon is full of these imaginative takes on building with concrete, to the extent that it has become a recognised architectural vernacular.

Apparently the rules say suggestions should be clean andTwo posts already, and no-one has suggested “Gritty McGritface”?
The council have said that Gritty McGritface and True Grit are both already the names of gritters in Shropshire and Doncaster Council’s respective gritting fleets.
They had a lot that looked like imported survivors. Lots of new paint-jobs and rejigged electronics half hanging out. The other motorbike looked like the oldest one there. I would have said early-80s if I'd found it in the West, but I suspect late-80s in Korea.That CHiPs bike must be an old relic from the 70s/80s!
