He was famously taken to court by Rolls.
The judge said he thought he had a 'Cavalier attitude', so he turned up at court the following day on a white horse! made it on telly of course! I suspect he tipped off the press.
What has happened to all those characters?
I believe he's dead now, and his son continues to run the car on occasion, including a top gear appearence a while back, on which they showed the news footage of his father turning up to court on the steed, very cool.
