The Blackpool Tower antics are something else! Looks like he's having a great time (apart from having to drive the P50 between places!)

He went the long way round in the end. It was a pity about the door dropping off, but he managed 50mph at one point.

A great effort all round.

A very entertaining series for sure. It still amazes me that cars like this were built with the intent of being practical - different times indeed.
