In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
From memory that arcade was run by the Harrison’s, they had a big house near where the squash courts used to be in Dawlish
Yep..Think your right..I remember Brian had a XJ6 with the person registration BEV IL which was B EVIL

He ran the dodgems & occasionally came up to the arcade to threaten me into giving him the keys to the machines to grab cash if he was short of personal cash 😁
I was told not to give him the keys by his sister,but was unsurprisingly too scared to defy him.
