    Yes, it works well!

    I used to count Asians when I was pre-teen . . .

    and then automatically dated them when I was older.:D

    I show my daughter bikes all the time, bike videos, etc. She is 2 and loves motorbikes. She always says if she sees one when we’re in the car!

    Don't know if the US had a car like the Austin 1100 that to an untrained eye looked similar when viewed head on from a distance, and meant the claimant got double punched if they tried to claim it :D

    To this day I will mentally shout punch car when I see a Beetle :oops:

    Was marketed as the 'Morris' 1100 in Australia, where I lived at the time. I actually learnt to drive in one 1968 - 69, and it made me the great driver I am today:D. Had a decal on the rear window, 'Floats on Fluid' to acknowledge its supposed innovative hydraulic suspension. Later replaced by the 1800 which was confusingly badged as Austin. I recall them both having a rather distinct transmission whine.

    I used to do “spot the caravan “ with my daughter to keep her engaged.

    Nigel, I wish I’d done the same when I was a kid

    Certainly keeps them occupied

    Not Naughty Naughty Di, more Silly Silly Di, but its her legs, and if she doesn't mind huge scars from the chance of sliding down the road then that's up to her? after all the chance of having crash in Spain is only slightly worse than that of the uk... :eek:;)

    @Lozzy she's dropped something. I think she needs to turn around, bend over and pick it up..

    Tell her to be careful, what she’s dropped might be hot - maybe take the top off and use it as a impromptu oven glove :D
