York petrol station hoping to trade in space prepares by ‘employing’ Transformer, Storm Trooper, Daleks and Cyberman
A petrol station owner in York is hoping to trade in space one day and has even fitted his shop with characters from sci-fi films in preparation.
Inner Space Service Station owner Graham Kennedy has installed models of Transformers and Storm Troopers inside, plus Daleks and even a Cyberman on the roof, as he counts down the days until lift off (whenever that is).
‘The idea behind Inner Space Stations is that the company would eventually operate and retail in space,’ he said.
‘We are a 24hr life support company. We are not in space yet… but one day we will be.’
The sci-fi fan recently travelled to Cambodia to buy a nine-foot Bumblebee Transformer replica he hoped would give him the edge in an ongoing price war with local supermarkets.
‘It is the only one in the UK,’ he told the York Press. ‘It is a massive amount of work. You could not get it done in this country.’
‘He is going to be my secret weapon in my price war with the supermarkets.’
