I need help on this one, as I wasn’t there. All I know is the Arabs decided to reduce the availability of petrol and thus raise the price, andTabs decided to buy a 1947 Chrysler New Yorker Deluxe. A maroon one. I also know we were all meant to drive at under 80km/h and we were not allowed to carry petrol and that Tabs set off for the sleepy hollow city of Pietermaritzburg with a few full jerry cans in the capacious boot of his ‘new’ Chrysler New Yorker Deluxe.
I also know that when the cops pulled them over Des was driving clad only in his underpants and there were lots of ladies on the capacious sofa-like back seat who suddenly found Des sitting on their laps in those same capacious underpants saying why, he doubted he even knew how to drive such a vehicle, officer.
And that when in the custody of the gendarmes in the back of their police van, those same ladies let the air out of the cops’ spare wheel.
But as I say, I don’t really know WHAT happened that night . . .
