      He is showing signs of age now isn't he. The best skit he did was the Army Tank crushing his little car, I don't think he has ever done a skit that wasn't funny. The TV antennae in the cardboard box was also a favorite, I remember too well owning those old TV's that had nothing but rabbit ear antennas and in the 50's and 60's it was like that.

      He's always had a love of fast cars.
      Met him in the Cafeteria at Donnington Park race track quite a few years ago.
      He used to race around the track there.

      Wow! Very lucky guy! I had heard he has a huge love for fast cars, wonder if this may slow him down a bit now?

      I also think it was age related and he should take note of that. ;)
      I did not know that he was a racer and love such cars. He was really lucky and blessed to survive such accident.

      he didn't by miracle escape from the crash, it wasn't a major crash the media today likes to dramatize everything.

      I did wonder that as after seeing the pictures the car didn't seem too badly smashed up, must agree though the media does like to make things seem more than they are just to get big interest on a story.
