A racing-car owner once asked a well-known automobile consulting engineer to carry out a technical examination of certain parts of his car, offering to drive this august person to where the car lay dismantled. The place, a certain Watford garage, was named and the owner was a little irritated when the engineer replied that he was a busy man but he would see how soon he could spare time for the journey. Time went on, and always the engineer pleaded he was too busy to make the trip. He was approached yet again, and the bottom fell out of things when he calmly announced that surely the fall of France rendered the project out of the question . . . . He had confused the garage, of course, with a well-known racing venue on the Continent. Yes, true story.
