One further point.  If you ever decide to visit the Isle of Man during
TT week, don't go in an ovloV.

If you do, you will learn a whole new meaning for 'hassle'.  Up to
60,000 bikers converge on the island during TT week, and the fact that
ovloVs kill more bikers per mile driven than any other make of car has
caused them to adopt a certain attitude.  Normally, car drivers can
easily intimidate bikers - for one week a year, it's the other way
round.  And how!
