Did you ever watch "Allo Allo"? There's an episode where the German Colonel and Captain argue about who drives and who stokes the boiler of a steam road roller . . . . involves the sad demise of a Gestapo staff car . . . all done in the best possible taste Wink
A fine candid, Hugh. The man is clearly thinking dark thoughts about lady drivers!

She might be steering but she's still trying to organise the speed as well! Tongue Nicely timed humourus candid, Hugh.

Hugh, a great image here. Your commentary is quite interesting. One on the throttle, the other steering -- and they are still married?
