Yes, and he used to talk posh back then too.If you look at early episodes you will also see his partner in crime presenting features on the show, the infamous ANDY WILMAN, who is now the producer. Also, have a look for the program showing the S Type Jag for an early appearance of James 'Fingers' May, the slowest geaway driver in the country...very funny stuff!
May is nobody's fool, despite all the 'slow' jokes. He's been a regular part of the TG team for the best part of 20 years and has owned several very quick cars, 911s and Ferraris among them. I still wouldn't fancy being a passenger when he's driving though...him droning on about balance shafts and reciprocating dog clutches wouldfinish me off.
