    Yes, thats what I wpuld have expected instead of thos hand signals… pilot clicks on button and other machines get a message light up or similar… well those italians they can do anything ;-)

    2 funny things..
    It’s in Italy and post war. They would drive like maniacs and ignore any signaling.
    Also, he is driving a 2CV. I think they had around 12 hp back then and would be incapable of passing a bicycle.

    1948ish Fiat Topolino Convertable

    The cover comes off both the car AND the driver’s head.
