    rocking

    cos in the ole days, the passenger sat behind the driver and driving on the RH side into the Savoy allowed the gentry/ passenger to be deposited directly onto the kerb and the door opened by the driver/ doorman , thus avoiding shit on their shoes/ having to open the door themselves
