Here is the Internet Movie Fuel Price Database Quite high prices it seems Well, no so much, at least here in Italy... Recently the fuel price raised up here too, but now we are around 1,1 €/liter for diesel and 1,2 for petrol. Some more expensive goes in Germany (1,3-1,4), but the prices shown on this pic sound really astonishing... here it goes yo-yo,, can be 1,08 $ a day, 1,19 the next day and get down to 1,12 two days later.... currently around 1,16 $ / litre £1.21 for diesel here, yesterday. When I first started driving you could get four gallons of 90 octane petrol for £1.00. Here in NZ, as of today, it is NZD2.06.9 a litre for regular 91. Diesel is 'only' NZD1.39.9 but the road tax on diesel is paid separately depending on the vehicle it is used in. Yes John when I started driving, in 1968, I could buy three gallons for $1. The bike? - maybe a Harley-Davidson Road King? Maybe for an Austrian, not for me, sadly. Recently I've paid (IIRC) 1.529€ per litre for petrol at a IP filling station, similar to the one in picture. So actually prices aren't much lower that at the time of filming... Looking at http://www.prezzibenzina.it/ ,now average prices are 1,575€/l for petrol and 1,421€/l for diesel, which could be much worse and bear in mind that petrol and diesel fuel are heavily taxed. Currently, it is around US$ 2.169 per US gallon in State of Georgia. That translates to US$ 0.573 per litre.

I had already written off a couple of cars by then. My real party trick, however, was the Lancia up a tree in 1971, writing off the car, and very nearly myself. I still have the limp, 46 years later. My driving licence is nearly 52 years old, and I am now comfortably past having driven 1 million miles.

Harley-Davidson Road King

Don't know what the three wheeler is based on. There is one being marketed here in NZ called a Can-Am. The black bike is a Harley-Davidson - maybe a Road King? It is a Can-Am indeed, but it's already listed. I'm looking for the HD or maybe the other twos (if they're rare). Just a guess he (the Can AM driver) didn't find acceptation in the "Holy riders" society? Is he still alive? The program-host, Jan Erik Larssen? Of course he is, otherwise this'd been the last episode The biker gang actually liked the Can-Am but most said it was an unaccustomed experience, if you don't believe me, I've taken the liberty to translate the conversation from this scene into English: Jan Erik Larssen: Here we have a part of a real Oslo-based MC-Gang, Holy Riders. Thank you for allowing me to interrupt in between full coffee-cups and illegal bible-translation. I have one question for you. What are your opinions on the Can-Am's driving abilities? Everyone of you have taken it for a spin. Biker #1: It was a lot of fun, but it felt a little like driving a snowmobile. Biker #2: It was a bit unaccustomed, it wouldn't excactly keep up in the turns. Biker #3: Awesome, but a little unaccustomed. Biker #4: It was fun, you felt a bit like riding a normal motorcycle. Biker #5: Unaccustomed at first, but eventually I got used to it. Another hour, and I'd mastered driving it. Biker #6: A lot of fun, but pretty unaccustomed. Biker #7: Fun, but I had to lean slightly more in the turns, like when riding a bicycle. Jan Erik Larssen: And another thing, can one join Holy Riders MC if you buy yourself a Can-Am Spyder? Answer at the same time on my count to three. One, two, three... Bikers: Yes! Jan Erik Larssen: Amen! Hahaha (iconic Larssen laugh).
