In about 1998 or so, when Jeff came to visit regarding my Brooks,
I had Jeff try driving my Brooks to a shopping centre, while there our
wives went into the store, and Jeff was comparing the differences
between our cars as he sat in the driver seat. A chap who knows me
spotted the car but didn't recognize the driver so I opened the rear
door where I was sitting and said hello, this chap did a double take
and spluttered an embarrassed comment , Jeff quick as a wit spoke up
saying, Richard couldn't find a chauffeur in America so imported one
from the UK, we laughed about that for years as my local friend took
it as the truth.
