Wheel meet again!

Yaya Toure is seen by many as the most imposing figure at the club, but he now has a contender in the form of... a car.
Shaun Donahue brought the Cadillac over from American and customized it to include his City heroes at a total cost of - wait for it - £50,000!
The last word in vehicle opulence was originally orange and white, but its owner knew what he intended to do with it the moment he bought it. With the images of Carlos Tevez, David Silva and Nigel de Jong illlustrated down one side, and Colin Bell next to Franny Lee on the other, it is the definitive City motor vehicle.
Shaun bought the car to the Stoke home game in May, and was immediately surrounded by amazed onlookers who were drawn to what has become a labour of love for the lifelong Blue.
This level of public attention is not uncommon, as Shaun exhibits it at motor shows around the UK where, more often than not, it becomes the main attraction.
Unfortunately, the Cadillac wasn’t able to travel to the FA Cup Final, but will hopefully be attending more home games next season according to Shaun.
Due to the success of this project, he is hoping that in a couple of years he will be able to add to his car collection with another vehicle to celebrate future trophy wins.
