317 gearbox repair

Brixton Hill

The owner of 317, obviously an American by his accent.
Gets on his mobile phone, asks us where he is, Brixton Hill, tells the person on the phone.
Ten minutes later a huge new Mercedes car pulls up, his two personal mechanics get out and repair the car, and he continues on his way to Brighton.
I would guess this man is wealthy, stinking rich even.
I wish the AA gave service like this.

I guess that's what you call a "back up plan" John.
I recall many years ago doing many miles in a Standard 10 with a spare gearbox in the boot ; never actually got around to fitting it though, perhaps I should have had a couple of mechanics follow me around, just in case. :-)
(How the other half live eh )
