Default Let me introduce you to charlie

Hi all,

as I'm quite new to the underground I'd like to introduce you to charlie.

Charlie's a 2003 MCS and first put his tires on the roads on April 30th 2003 in Oxford (where else)
I adopted him second hand on December 23rd 2005 after losing Mortimer (my first MCS) in a crash.

So here are his vital statistics:
