Full Cream Ahead...<br />
<br />
Benny Hill may have claimed that Ernie drove the fastest milk cart in the west, but the real-life record holder has now emerged for sale at auction.<br />
<br />
In his 1971 hit 'Ernie (The Fastest Milkman in the West)' Hill claimed the humble delivery man had the quickest float around, which he used to attract the attention of Sue, a local widow.<br />
<br />
Now however Ernie's horse drawn cart has been blown out of the water by a V8 monster capable of over 80mph.
