When I was a yoof and had a job delivering hotel supplies in Lahndan and the Soufeast I got to use a Pony just like that (same colour even!) when the company Hiace went in for a service. The garage doing the work was a great outfit - besides the Pony they had a few Crowns used as courtesy cars, while some of them were reserved for undertakers duties. Anyway - I was told I absolutely had to get the Pony back by 5PM and found my self tearing along some country lanes at the end of the day trying to meet the deadline. I had to blast past a very slow car (Camry I think) about five miles out from the garage, which then seemed to tail me quite closely. When I arrived at the garage just after 5, the Camry pulled in a short while after me. The driver got out and asked me what the hell I was doing driving one of his cars like a lunatic - yep, it was the garage owner.
Anyway - he was a decent sort and accepted my explanation with a bit of a scowl and said no more.
A few years later I had to help load my poor old grandad into their undertakers Crown Estate the day he popped his clogs. Talk about a bitter-sweet experience!
