Come on Neil........
Why would I like the pic of the cooke and moore bus........

Hint: nothing to do with the add! Cooke and moore were boring old farts anyway :lol:
Second Hint: Looks very different to the average Metro bus nowadays unless its in a satellite yard and a dedicated driver to a particular bus (sometimes)

ALL the pictures of #622 has CLEAN CHROME WHEELS as well as #636, however I do admit Cooke & Moore does look a bit shiny(er)

CHROME paint NOT silver paint. Definately NOT CHROME WHEELS. (What were you thinking, it's Metro)

They look like chrome paint to me, and they run 22.5 rims too.
