In the bar there was an ancient car parked to one side of the long zinc counter. The car was converted into a seating booth.
The patrons were a mixed crowd and few ever used the car as their place to sit.
When the successful Formula 1 racing driver Flip Corner came in one night with his entourage, everyone suggested he sit in the car. He did not. Nor did any of his entourage.
But this particular night a historian, who as historians go was famous, accompanied by his girlfriend and her brother’s brother in law, visited the bar and decided the car was just the thing.
The car was historic and the historian had the keys to it.
