      . . . and then the driver, having been rescued by the daughter, would be revived by their award-winning wine . . . they'd fall deeply in love, but wouldn't marry until the following year, when he would race past the vineyard -- she standing there in her sundress, waving a handkerchief, cheering him on -- and win the international car rally . . . .

        Well, with all those folks standing alongside the road, it'a a wonder no one was hurt.
