Yes. Everyone in Britain drives Minis and wears flat caps.

Looks like a later one possibly eighties more likely nineties so brand name would be Mini or Rover.

Home modified with glassfibre bits - not a specific edition. As well as wearing flatcaps, we all take our whippets for long walks.

With a matching tweed suit for the flat cap I presume?

Only on Special Occasions. I was laughed at when I wore my one to work at t'mine.

Our mine closed when the pit ponies died. There were rumours that that Thatcher woman was involved.

Well, I fed into the stereotype by buying a flat cap shortly after purchasing my MG Midget a few years ago ;)

As Sandie and dsl are Scotsmen, we can expect, that it's rather a Kilt in the colours of their Clans. ;)

Some German owners of British classic cars put on embarrasing clownish clothes, when they are on tour. Sure, Tweed and/or Burberry-stuff, but a flat cap is not enough it must be Sherlock Holmes-cap. :/

Some of them were really pissed, when I wrote something ironicially about this embarassing disguise in a reader's letter, which was published in a oldtimer-magazine some years ago. But not only they were angry, also other groups of classic car-owners, about them I've heavily slandered. :D

The Sherlock Holmes hat is called a 'Deerstalker'.

It goes both ways though. A few weeks back a friend was staying at a hotel in England where they had an Oktoberfest do with all the stereotyped German clothes and Oktoberfest outfits.

These "German" clothes are Bavarian, not German. :no:

Ah yes.

I should have remembered that from when I was studying the German political system earlier this year and looked at the CSU/CDU.

Yes, the Bavarians always need their own special treatment. So the CSU is only there, while the CDU is everywhere else in Germany. There are more examples, so they have own colours for their police-cars. They have the BRK, not the DRK (the Red Cross). And for any reason the Bavarian children never could watch the Sesame Street.

But they don't have own bills as the Scottish. ;)

What element of cultural identity did that reinforce?

The Bavarian government thought, the Sesame Street was a "cultural superalienation", due the black and indian actors. And that in Bavarian there are no deprived children, who have to play outside besides garbage-bins.
No kidding, absurd and grotesque, but this was the reality.
Back then, the backwoods-mind was quite distinctive in Bavaria, at least at the moast German countrysides. Fortunately this retarted stupidity has disappeared. But not totally and not everywhere. Since 1990 we Germans have -especially in this affilation- the Eastern millstone hanging at our neck. :/

Later on, after 1979, in Germany the real scenes of the Sesame Street were played bys German actors and some other puppets. I remember still some old, US-made ones.

It's common in the UK - the other interpretation is "Beware of pickpockets".

Not to forget, to find in all bigger towns, especially nearby foreigners-gateways, the plenty of "look right"-signs, -plates, -street-makeup, etc.
It's indeed more diffucult for us Continental-Europeans to cross a street than to drive a car on the island. And you get a pain in the neck, because you will start to look uncoordinated left-right-left-right-left-right...

All they mean is to dress appropriately (eg Pedestrians Look Right). Smart/casual usually works, but not shell-suits.

Aye, we're clever like that. (So no doubt your reply will be that they don't work??).

I haven tested it. And I will not do it. Do you know, what a fu..ing work you'll have with the cables?
The only reason, why I own it, is the German leaflet. Even for two reasons.

And this chunk under the bumper will have bad influences on the aerodynamic of my car. :o It even can cause a lower top speed!
