Tickled by the Nissan Armadale

The Nissan Armada LE

Seeing this in the diary column of the Herald this morning about how one reader though the Nissan Armada LE was named the Nissan Armadale, and wondered whether a Nissan Bathgate or Whitburn were in the offing.

Of course one of the newest housing developments on the old truck and tractor works in Bathgate (1961-86) does pay homage to that car heritage in West Lothian as there is a Leyland Road. Not so much named after the Lancastrian town to the south of Preston but to the company it formed one of the branches that made up the company.
