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!
