Professor Patrick Pacificus Potter may be a mouthful to pronounce, but the dear man is just that – peaceful and patient, as his name suggests. Dame Vera Tasty happens to drop in, bringing home the Professor’s two children who have played truant from school, we know right away that his luck is about to change!
Vera, the only child of a wealthy business man, brings him a car and askes him to restore it for her; the Professor dons his thinking cap and pulls out all the stops. After locking himself away in his garage for weeks, he emerges with a sparkline car that’s can even fly. Vera is ecstatic…. by the Professor’s good looks. And by the car, of course! The two pack the children, and a picnic lunch, into The Safra – that, apparently, is how the car was known in its Monte Carlo Races heyday – and off they fly on an adventure. Love is in the air too for the truly scrumptious Vera and Prof. P.P. Potter!
