“Oi! Who stole my steering wheel?!”
When I moved to Germany back in the 70s, I drove over in a red 1968 MGB.
Right hand drive which poses immediate problems in left hand drive Europe.
Like overtaking or using a swipe card to access parking buildings. Or paying the attendant when you exit aforementioned parking building.
But it has HUGE potential for fun.
I’d replaced the massive OEM steering wheel with something akin to coming from a Formula 1 Lotus.
Invisible to the unsuspecting observer.
My cousin Graham was over on a visit and we hatched the plan to put the willies up the local populace.
I’d drive down the road with my hands at the bottom of the wheel, swerving from side to side and Graham – sitting where the locals would expect to see the driver – would wave the original wheel and wail “HILFE! HILFE!. Mein Lenkrad!”
Worked a treat……
