Luckily this time Curly didn't mention reverse gears. Still seems to prefer a Zonda though. Kinda predictable.

I just waisted sereral minutes of my life watching it on I player. He did mention reverse gears, he said his car had one. The only bit that made me laugh was when he said he couldnt understand a word of what Duncan Vallentine said. I know we are not supposed to take it seriously but he also said you could drive it on a motorway, 50cc? Am I missing something or is this the usual misinformation we have come to expect on the BBC? :D

I read that book 'Poisoner of Zonda' by Anthony Hopeless. Something to do with a doppelganger running off with a Lancia Flavia and Rupert of Hentzau getting narky at the Ruritanian MIcrocar Rally.
