They are both blokes!
Having passed my 3 wheeler test in the ABC prototype at age 16....

In 1970 I also passed my test in an automatic....no one I knew had a manual gearbox car !!
So I went along in my Mk2 3.8 Jaguar and the tester spent the whole time talking about the car.

Suffice to say 3 years later had to take another test in a Manual Mini :D :D :D

Random (well sort of) non Mini pic - I tend to go through phases with certain cars and the AC / Shelby Cobras keep coming around hovering into view, both the real ones and replicas, I just love the shape and proportions in all their guises....
