I had an image but it is from a pay for image site so could cause problems, link below.

1947 Kaiser Frazer

Wikipedia page
Excellent Steve, How did you land on that. Not many made.
The exact model I think is A Kaiser Darrin 1954 hence my spoiler "code" of Anton Stephens

Der Kaiser......Franz Anton Beckenbauer
and Darrin Stephens The husband of Samantha Stevens in Bewitched the 60's TV Series

Used The Gimp to crop the image down to the car only, the text was skewing the results.
The Google Image search.

Is it cheating to stand it on its feet?

Washington Birtley Services
Washington Birtley Services
The one near me then?

Thought not :(

Best one I have seen was in Germany and the bridge was a restaurant.

The only other one I have been in was at the Moto tower on the M6

Looks a shambles there and was disused for a while. Was in use when I was there but that was a couple of decades ago.

One of the areas on the M6 had the restaurant on the bridge but the last time I was there it was a Burger King/McDonalds servery on the bridge with random seating. I think I'm talking about Keele but it may be the next one up!! :-D

Strensham services were on both sides of the M5 when it was first built with a connecting bridge across the motorway. The northbound services were more of a truck stop, I used to park that side and cross the bridge to the other one. When the M50 was built the northbound side was demolished and moved a couple of miles up the road.
