"I've heard of car owners doing that here in the States"
Not just in the States. Back when I lived in the leafy Home Counties, there were a couple of locals reminiscing at the pub. Someone brought up the weather, which led to the drought of 1977, which led to one of them leaning back and saying "Yeah, I thought I might be in trouble back then. I remember driving past Staines Reservoir and I could see the aerials of all the cars I'd done insurance jobs on"
