Default Where did this come from?

How did Paul's song "Helen Wheels" get its name?

It was the name he gave to his old Land Rover that he owned at the time. A play on "Hell on Wheels."

Paul's old Land Rover is correct. And we chalk up another point for Nipper.

Score:
HMVNipper - 7
darkhorse - 2
IreneBeatle - 2
Harbidge - 1
SF4-EVER - 1
