Following a, er, lady driver up a steep hill yesterday.

I held back as I could see her accelerating as fast as she could to a parked car on our side so I knew we would have to stop as there was traffic coming the other way. Anticipation, its the name of the game.

It took her totally by surprise though as she managed to lock the wheels going uphill in her ABS/ABD equiped kid-mover.

Anyhoo all of this cleverness was wasted because Mrs Muppet couldn't do hill starts, so she stalled. Not once, not twice, but THREE times.

Ford C-Max 1.6 Petrol, it must be a torque mountain.
