Re: changing gear

Some years ago,while travelling from Liverpool to Ashover,completed the Cat and Fiddle pass in top gear in a 1927 wide track long stroke Clifton with no difficulty.
Great car.

Ps, the only time I can remember using first gear in the car was while towing a vintage Alvis up hills in Derbyshire.
