I got my first ticket to 'produce' at the police station (all your driving documentation) in 1978 using a good glug of Redex. My Mk2 Cortina had been miss firing on the homeward leg of a trip to the midlands - it was early evening and I had no tools so I kept going for about two hours getting slower and slower.

I got home, took the plugs out and they were all black with carbon, cleaned them and twisted the distributor around a little where a slack pinch bolt had let it slip. Big glug of redex and as it was now a quiet mid week evening I razed my way away round the village to let it work - now not all of it was down to the redex alone because there was a hell of a build up of carbon in the engine which promptly burnt away. In fact when I looked behind me it was like the Red Arrows white smoke trail - so I knew it was working!

I had to stop at a junction where unfortunately a beat copper was stood on the kerb (remember those days?) it all when wrong when the smoke trail caught me up and you couldn't see over the road. I thought 'produce' was a good result given the policing methods then - and since I had test; insurance and license. A winning combination and not always available to all of my mates.

I remember when I did day release from Work to do my Planning Course at Birmingham Uni between 1985-89 I used to take it in turn driving with another lad from work. He had a Mini 850 with a slipping clutch. We were always late when it was his time to drive as it took us ages to get over Barr Beacon hill. At the time I had a Mazda 323 GT with twin carbs :)
