No problem, Mark. Glad to help out. :-)


For sure, Hoons aren't car enthusiasts - far from it... they are maniacs on wheels ;)


Hope you're enjoying Chopper - he's quite a character down here...

Steve, in the states, it'd be gearhead (although your description goes further than that relatively benign label of a car enthusiast), not
"petrolhead." We fill our cars with gas, not petrol. Or maybe Lemmy's a hoon, being a Motorhead.

All joking aside, thanks for the clarification.
