It was some fire, i passed on the M8 on the way home from the football in one of the buses in socceroo's pic at the height of the fire, it caused quite a bit of delay on the motorway with everyone slowing down for a look.

There was a yellow and black panoramic style atlantean in George Square today, didn't get a note of the reg no but i'm sure it had LA 1024 (or similar) under the number plate.
