    Little wonder the driver's seat appears to double up as a commode (00:45)

    Was the boy at the starting handle not risking his thumb?

    That is quite some engine - must be interesting with those tyres...

    I thought the guy was going to crank it until it started at first which looked like a laugh!

    Watched this five mins ago. I made the mistake of not putting the volume down.

    Now my cat won't come out of the spare room.

    They must have had massive gonads to drive those thing at high speeds back in the day.

    I was listening on headphones at a low volume luckily - being grateful I'd done so when it started.

    Our cats have had to put up with me playing Call Of Duty for many years so they may not have even batted an eyelid.

    Also means they don't pay attention around Bonfire night!
