PER­MIT ME

Unique Cars - - GARAGE GURUS -

I got to won­der­ing the other day about who had the first of­fi­cial driver’s li­cense. Should have known it’d turn out to be the bloke who had the first proper car, Karl Benz. Ap­par­ently, Karl gained writ­ten per­mis­sion from the Ger­man State of Baden to op­er­ate his mo­tor­wa­gen in 1888. Seems the lo­cals had been com­plain­ing about the noise and smell up un­til then. So, whiny neigh­bours are noth­ing new af­ter all.
