Took 9 months to think of that?

Should have gone with 'gear knobs'

Apparently anything with the word 'Gear' was not allowed due to copyright issues.

It's a bit of a crappy name, but as mentioned all the other names they came up with infringed copyright.

'The Grandad Tour' would have been better.

They did give me a good laugh at times.
I am surprised that at leaset one of them has not been killed
carrying out one of their stunts.

Hopefully they are a lot less PC than they were on the BBC

I felt that the new name should have been

1 = Driving Heads

2 = The clown, jest and joker.

3 = Three Speed

Yes, I really liked most of that they did too (apart from playing football with cars).

Great entertainment. Looking forward to seeing it.

A very strange title. The phrase refers to a cultural tour of Europe done by many upper class people (typically young men) in the 1800s :confused: :dk:
