Dear Bob

"CAC should be changed to KAK"

"With no brakes, no clutch and no gears, I think I would rather wait for a bus"

" I would like to see Big Al try and get in and drive it away"

" With no brakes, no clutch and no gears, it would be ideal for my wife"

" Have you worked out which direction it goes"

"Even the driver has abandoned it in the middle of the road"

Dear Bob

I would give it a good go. But I fear the front wheels might collapse under my weight.

The Speckypotato is quoted as saying

'The Cacpit'. Pre-dating the Messerschmitt in the use of ex wartime components in post war production. It featured the only fire extinguisher issued with a registration number since it was more powerful than the mounting assembly.
