Interesting story in the Daily Snail today about a researcher in Cairo who has found a link between road rage and petrol/exhaust fumes.

Interesting in that her name is Dr. AMAL Kinawy.
The Amal, of course is the make of carb. fitted to most British made motorbikes ! Younger BRs may not have heard of them ! I wonder if her parents were enthusiasts and set her on a career in petrol related matters ?

Does anybody know of a person with a motoring ( not makers ) you have a Gladys Bumper, Fred Flywheel or similar in the family ?

Top of my head...

Isn't Tom Ford a presenter on one of the motoring programmes?

Edit: I see the OP asked for 'motoring (not makers) name', which strictly speaking disqualifies Tom Ford and PU's Austin Healey.

Plenty of scope using makers names, that's why I put 'no makers '.........Bunny Austin, Old Mother Riley, Anna Ford etc, etc. I was thinking more of parts...We had a vicar here, now deceased, called Gerry Wheale.....not quite the right spelling but it's a start !


Quite right, tell 'em !

Gerry Wheale.....not quite the right spelling but it's a start !

As distorted spelling is allowed, many will remember the leader of (IIRC) the NUR many years ago, Sid Weighell - appropriate for a railwayman ...

There has been an American composer called Walter Piston.

Usain Bolt.

Dunno what a Usain is, but I imagine there are a few bolts holding the CC3 together.

I got soundly told off and made to sit on the naughty step for suggesting him Humph. I'll shuffle up and make space for you. I was so embarrassed I deleted my posting with the utter shame of my public humiliation.....(or something like that)

There's always frodo (sp) from Lord of the (piston) Rings, if we're being really silly!


Well I can't believe that:) I'm trying to type ROD where the asterisks are and the swear filter doesn't like it!
I must have led a sheltered life because I cant imagine what it thinks it says:):)

pda, we once had someone on here who thought it was hilarious to refer to Ford as Frod.

Have now sorted your post. DD

I really did once know someone whose name was Maurice Healy. He was the older brother of a schoolmate.

I wonder if any of the Horn family ever called a son Airey?

And did he have a twin?

I'll be blown!

When I first started in the bank in the 70s we had a little old dear's account in the name of Mini Carr... and I understand another branch had Maurice Minor as well... those old fashioned names from the turn of the century (1900, not 2000!) had quite a few permutations!

Suppose there's always Mini Driver from Corrie!!

Is actress Minnie Driver the daughter of Laurie Driver?

There was a novelist called Maurice Baring (fl. early C20): someone asked in Foyles if they had any Maurice Barings and was solemnly directed to a garage.
