The Giant Costa Cups that you see dotted about all over the country, more so at petrol station's?

I wonder how many we can all find....  ;) 

 

Here's Idea, very simple...

Get YOUR Ford in a picture with A Giant Costa Cup (If you want to jump into the picture yourself go ahead..)

Once you have got your Picture post it here..

 

State the number at the bottom of your post so we know how many we can find, Also state the Location of where The Giant Costa Cup is...

This is just a bit of Fun!

You never know you may be close to another member from here...

 

EXAMPLE      EXAMPLE         EXAMPLE        EXAMPLE         EXAMPLE          EXAMPLE

 

**Just pretend that golf is a ford**


 

 

NUMBER : 451 
LOCATION : SOUTH POLE, SNOW STREET, UK

I've never actually been brave enough to try the machines lol. But the Barista in my local shop makes the best coffees ever. Props to him, real pro.  ^_^

I'm always at Costa, large black coffee, with 4 shots extra :P

I know where at least four cups are but as I'm laid up at the moment I can't get to them.
Wait until I'm driving again then watch out ;)

I think there are a good 3 or 4, unfortunately they arent really ideal to stop next to and get photo's of!

Two of the ones I know of are next to busy roads with bus lane cameras.
Very tricky to get up close in my own car but if I use my works car I may get away with it.
I'll just have to see how It goes.

Missed one at the petrol station on the A38 opposite Newton Abbot racecourse but no way I was doing a 10 mile loop, I'll get it next time.

I notice that this appears to be pretty much only southern folks finding these giant cups presumably as it is so grim up north we don't have any of these or they've all been nicked by the local low lifes.

Northern low life need garden ornaments! I cant believe you begrudge them that Phil ;)

 

lol, I can say that as I used to live up north and new plenty of low life who stole just about anything they could touch!

Stoney871
Nowadays no student accomodation is complete without a window full of beer cans, a road cone/sign/flashing light and now apparently hunking great Costa cups.
TDCiST
Do u think that was a "where the hell did we get that" conversation the morning after??
jeebowhite

nah, someone would have filmed it I am sure :p

Only cause I can't take part in all this festive fun you guys are having

jeebowhite

Phil, go grab yourself a giant costa cup, take the lid off and plant a tree in it :P

Philf1

Can I use a small one and put a bonsai in it?

jeebowhite

Sounds as good a plan as any!

Philf1

but us poor northerners can't afford Costa can you send me a cup please?

Stoney871
Empty one? Not a problem :d

At last a poor northerner can join in your fun and try to resurrect this thread.

 

Found this at the southbound Tibshelf services on the M1 this morning on the way down to the Paul Walker tribute day at Santa Pod.

 

 

Stoney871

God effort Phil.

Pity we didn't reach 50 before the new year.

C'mon Guys, let's step it up a bit, the coffee's getting cold ;)
