    If they're anything like the women I know, it's almost certainly done several lengthy journeys with the handbrake full hard on.
    Peggy Hitchcock,who used to run the Herts Junior Girls team in the '70s and 80s drove all the way to Ilkley in second gear!

    She was exceedingly venerable and very mutton. She also wound up the window and drove away whilst Jane Baldwin's Dad was saying goodbye to her. Mad as a cabbage.

    Perhaps the client is a fan of "The Sunshine Boys" Meister and the skeleton is Mr Melnick?

    Easy peasy.
    But have any of us living ever, truly, reached our destination, think on!

    Maybe an urban myth but I did overhear a story once about someone who had blown up the engine of their car because they had pulled the handbag hook (choke)out too far.

    One I know that is true is the American woman that wrecked 3 or 4 engines of different hire cars before the rep decided to sit in to see what she was doing wrong. With the thing screaming he told her to put it in second .... After a lengthy pause came the reply "what do you mean second?"

    I just watched Jason Bourne. Why do the CIA think a bloke in a suit can clamber out the back of a white van without anyone realising it is a surveillance van?
