Opening an American style pizza restaurant chain in Italy , is like trying to sell dirty snow to eskimos . :rolleyes: ;)
I’m shocked they stayed in business there as long as they have ..probably just many clueless American tourists buying that stuff, for a “ taste of home “😕

Old humor about Lucas Electric.. systems many ( or most ) British cars used quite a bit, I hear . Much maligned, becoming just about legendary, although no idea if it‘s only a grain of truth that has been blown out of proportion for the sake of humor ..or, if it really was that crappy.. :unsure::oops:

• Lucas is an acronym for Loose Unsoldered Connections And Splices.

• The Lucas motto: "Get home before dark."

• Lucas--inventor of the first intermittent wiper.

• Lucas--inventor of the self-dimming headlamp.

• The three-position Lucas switch--DIM, FLICKER and OFF.

• The other three switch settings--SMOKE, SMOLDER and IGNITE.

• Lucas dip-switch positions: HIGH and BLOW

• The original anti-theft devices--Lucas Electric starters

• Lucas Quality Control often advised the engineering department that their designs had problems with shorting out. Engineering always made the wires a little longer.

• Why do the English drink warm beer? Lucas refrigerators.

• Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone, Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, and Joseph Lucas invented the short circuit.
