Going shopping with a Peel
« on: August 03, 2007, 02:36:30 PM »
This was made for a german classic car magazine. It shows me and the P50 in front of our local supermarket.
The employees were very confused, because i tried to drive in the market. Unfortunately- or should i say fortunately - the entrance was a bit to small  >:(

Nice pic! When the Fezheads last did Chippenham festival I drove my Drum Car around town in the procession. When some of the lads decided to divert into Woolworths I thought it would be rude not to join in. The drum car is much wider than a peel, but the doors were wide enough. All 18 of us went in in full kit, with a girl on the sedan chair on the shoulders of 4 fezheads. We serenaded the check out girls and did 2 songs before reversing out. The security guards were so dumbfounded they just stood and watched, not knowing what to do! The drum car is electric, which is p[robably less smoky than a Peel !

Oh Boy ! the Drum Car (No 943 on the Register) in Woolworths that is a news worthy story that should go out to a wider audience in the RUMCAR NEWS.  Did you get any pics Marcus or make the local newspaper?  Jean

No pix, we were all to busy...it's hard work when your motto is " Middle Aged Men Behaving Irresponsibly" ! Yes i really wish I had pix of that one, some shoppers got pix, but it was all on the spur of the moment. Mind you, I think it's time I got some decent batteries for it and did a few crazy things.
