Fair dinkum

This made me laugh, it remimnded me of when my car's windscreen wipers didn't work, so I bought a windscreen wiper from the local wreckers and drove around Sydney when it was pouring down, with one hand on the steering wheel and the other out of the window using the windscreen wiper to clear the windscreen.

He'd get clamped.
A police mole grassed on him.

My father (if he was to be believed), in the 1930s, drove a car from Ruthin to Wrexham via the notorious Nant Y Garth Pass (http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?X=316315&Y=351260&A=Y&Z=120), steering with a pipe stillson instead of a steering wheel.

It was a wrench when they parted him from his car.
