Heh, heh, heh. Reminds me of a story I once read about driving in Italy. It seems driving is considered a sport over there and every vehicle is considered the equal to every other vehicle until proven otherwise.
A sporty guy in a Alfa Romeo caught up with a local in a farm truck so the race was on. The farm truck took full advantage of the narrow roads and, by bouncing off of a few stone walls, managed to stay ahead of the Alfa for several miles. Eventually, however, they came to an open area where overtaking the farm truck was inevitable. The farmer, quite properly, stuck his arm out of the window and waved the Alfa by.
