I always fancied the Grinnell, took it for a spin via the PEMC club a long time ago.

I loved my Grinnall , but it had no reverse gear or wet weather equipment. In the dry it handled like a track car, but in the wet it could snap back and bite the unwary. When I sold mine the new owner sent his mate to check it out and take it away. It was a wet day and on the test drive he was pushing it and I told him to slow down in the wet. Two hours after he left me with it he phoned to say he had rolled it on a roundabout in Periguex!
