Ha ha, yes I've pulled in there on the way down to Goodwood Revival in the Sunbeam Alpine after the nearside front brake locked on and smoke started pouring out as we came off the M25. Needless to say I was dressed as a 2nd Lt Royal Artillery (5th Anti Aircraft Division) and the girlfriend at the time was in full Land Army get up (oh yes...). It took the RAC man (sorry Gav) to point out that as it would take several hours for recovery we might want to try driving home slowly rather than hanging around there. It was then that we had a look around and what had registered only subconsciously suddenly became very apparent! I'm glad I wasn't on my own!
