It's been a while since I've done a Top Gear/YouTube related post, so here's one. I suspect the video will be gone in a day or two as those take-down notices seem to fly thick and fast, but this one's all about the Peel P50 from 1963. It does 100 MPG, it's small enough to be picked up and wheeled around, drive through the BBC offices, fit into normal elevators and generally let Jeremy Clarkson annoy everyone around him.

I guffawed out loud when he drove it in the background of the newscast… :D

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
