13 stories or lyrics (group or solo) about driving or being in a vehicle

1. The long van ride to Hamburg, during which, John nicks a harmonica

2. Man We Was Lonely (I used to ride on my fast city line…)

3. Freezing fog in winter, and the Beatles are in a van driven by Mal Evans when the windscreen is smashed by a pebble. Mal just punches the windscreen out completely and continues driving (while having to watch the kerb as a guide) for 200 miles all the way back to Liverpool.

4. The Mini Cooper drive after George, John, and their wives were given LSD at the dentist’s house.
