Gav Porthouse regaled me with the hilarious story of his time on a vintage caravanning forum.

Woman with the surname Bellett posted a picture of a Bellett towing a caravan, with the question "What model is this?"

Gav launched into a giant explanation on the history of the Isuzu automobile and that the car in question, was her namesake, the Isuzu Bellett.

She answered..."I was talking about the caravan...." :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
