I once read a story about a guy who lent his car to a friend. The friend was sitting at a stop light that day and was just curious as to what that "magic red button" did. Needless to say, the owner of the car ended up opening his door later that day to his friend holding a melted piston in his hand.
Don't know if it's true or not, but I got a little laugh! :p

Crazy things can happen with cars and boats, mix the two and dissaster is around the corner. At boat launch ramps dangerous, funny and tragic things happen with regularity. I have seen several shouting matches, matrimonial stresses, fights and trauma. These two I witnessed personally:

A woman had borrowed a friend's pickup truck to pull her runabout power boat. She backed the trailer onto the launch ramp until the trailer and boat were in the water. She set the emergency brake and went back to release the boat. She got the boat free but then noticed that the truck started to slowly roll back to the water. She waded back to the truck and jumped in, trying to stop the truck, but panicked and couldn't get it stopped. It kept going until she swam out of it! I pulled the rig out of the water with a tow strap and helped her park the truck and trailer. In the mean time, the boat drifted away, to be rescued by another boater.

At another launch ramp two guys were trying to pull their small wooden cabin cruiser out of the water. The ramp was slick with sea weed and traction was nearly impossible. I would guess that alcohol contributes to this, but the driver just floored the pickup tow vehicle and the tires spun and steamed and smoked all the way up the ramp. Finally at the top of the ramp, the tires began to grip. The driver was obviously pissed off and roared off, taking the turn onto the adjoining road too sharply. The boat short radiused the corner and the boat headed for a concrete protection post on the corner, ripping the entire side of the boat off.

Talking

My brother bought an ex-police Dodge Diplomat, and being the Security Dude that he was...stopped at a light and noticed this little button.

"I bet that was the siren." So he hits the button and begins to make a wailing noise. The deck lid popped up and naturally I was the one that had to get out and shut it.

What a maroon...

I never will forget the time my cousin parked his truck on the boat ramp to load the boat on the trailer. He put it in neutral, set the parking brake, and left the engine running, while he walked back to the dock to get in the boat to drive it on the trailer. Well, halfway to the boat he heard a loud clack, clack, clack, tunred around just as the emergency brake released and the truck and trailer rolled back into the water......all the way to about 2 feet over the roof. The truck was completely submerged and all his stuff was floating out and away. He was chasing stuff down for 30 minutes.

A guy I knew in highschool drove an old P.O.S Ford Fiesta/Festiva. He would rev it up to about 6000 rpm and turn the key off while holding the gas down. After a second or two he would turn the key back on and when the motor kicked back in the fuel in the exhaust pipe would crack like a gunshot. It was always funny to watch people hit the ground, but even funnier when he blew the exhaust pipe apart. He drove it around for months without fixing the exhaust, sounded like a sick weedeater.

Back to the boat ramp! Couple of fellow red necks were at a pretty busy ramp. And by all three of thier looks they had a few two many to drink and were trying really hard to be cool! Anyway they had a older model Chevy truck loud pipes the works. One backed the trailer down the ramp while anther drove the boat on the trailer, the other supervised. The one in the truck with shirt off and cig hanging out of corner of mouth was waiting on the boat driver to park the boat on the trailer. while waiting he was reaving the engine making the pipes howel! I saw what was comming next! The boat driver still in the boat yelled "GO!" when he got it parked so the one in the truck put it in gear and punched it. He punched it so hard that by the time the boat and trailer were out of the water the boat was sitting on the boat ramp. He pulled the trailer right out from under the boat and left it and his buddy sitting high and dry on the pavement! LOL! Gotta love summers in Arkansas!

Cool

There are a lot of ricers where I live, and they all try to race me just about every day. Don't get me wrong, I don't go all out racing on the streets, that's what the dragstrip is for. But, I get a lot of them in front of me that wanna play. All they see is a big old car that looks like it's gunna be fast. So of course they will start messing with me as we're going down the road. This really pisses me off. Anytime we both end up turning the same way at an intersection or end up at a stoplight, they have to try to beat me. Sometimes I just let them go, but when the car is super-retarded looking, I can't help embassasing them. So I stomp on it, and my incredible 105hp 250cidL6( <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" /> ) engine roars to life with the dynomax muffler. The worst part is, I'll be just as quick or even faster then they are!!!! (btw, I ran a 19.6 1/4 mile at National Trail Raceway) And the worst part is the smell! Yuck, I hate rotten eggs. I just laugh my a** off at these punks <img src="graemlins/spank.gif" border="0" alt="[spank]" /> who think they are fast, and now are even more firmly rooted in thier beliefs 'cause they can keep up with a Nova!!!! <img src="graemlins/spank.gif" border="0" alt="[spank]" />

Reminds me of a time sitting at a light with 2 ricers right in front of me. Mind you, I'm in a heavy 2001 Extended Cab 4x4 GMC with stock 5.3 and big tires on it, so it doesn't move that fast. Well, two ricers are gunning their engines at each other. Light turns green and they both stand on it. They both change to the lft lane, I guess the one in back was drafting or something. Should've seen the looks on their faces when this big 4x4 blew by both of them like they were standing still. Both of their mouths were hangin open.....

Well, I knew these guys (not me and my dad for sure), but they were building a fence. They got to one section where their old 70 chevy blazer was in the fence line so they had to move it. It hadn't run for years and the tires were all flat so they couln't push it by had. So, the older guy (not my dad just in case that's what you were thinking) starts up the tractor to push the blazer. He pushes it about 2 feet which is enough to clear the fence, but he says, "as long as I've got the tractor running I'll just move it a little more."
Now, before I continue, these guys live at about the 6500 foot level and every direction is down hill. So, he pushes the blazer about 1 more foot and then a gap is created between the bumper of the blazer and the tractor. The blazer starts rolling slowly down the hill, unmanned with four flat tires and both doors open. The younger guy (not me) was going to jump in but the older guy (not my dad) told him not to cuase the brakes might not work, So they both stood there in awe as the first new car the older guy ever bought was quickly picking up speed rolling toward an innevitable end. By the time it had rolled about 25 yards it was starting to get fast and it was headed right toward a temporary pipe corral. However is swerved and the driver door clipped the corral, which in turn closed the door and folded up the corral (which is hinged on all four corners) like a cardboard box.
Now it was headed for a small pond that was down hill from our...I mean their house. However, it swerved just in the nick of time to avoid the pond, but there was no avoiding the small hill it was aiming at. It hit the hill at about 35-40 mph and was quickly air born in a flight path that would make Beau and Luke Duke jealous.
When it came back to earth, it bounced again and landed on the front bumper where it teetered for a few seconds and then fell over and broke off a pine tree 8 feet up. When it came to rest it was laying on the passenger side, facing back up the hill.
The funniest part is, it didn't break any windows, or the fiberglass top and the biggest dent in it was already there. It broke both mirrors, one head light and the grille.
Now, it is in the process of being restored for the younger guy's little brother.

2 stories:
So I'm chillin with my friend in his rusted out 4 banger toyota tundra with a 4 speed manual. WE get to a stoplight not far from the turnoff to his house. He says "watch this" when a camaro pulls up next to him. He revs the little engine(no muffler) and grins at the dude in the Camaro. The guy throws some revs and starts to watch the light. The light turns green and they both dump the clutch, the truck givin a little screech while the camaro is screaming up the road with the rear engulfed in smoke. We get it up to speed and turn off to his house just as a cop flips his lights and goes after the camaro. ****ty, I know, but he says he doesn't do it too often and it was pretty funny to watch.

Now for my story:
So I've still got the old(read-really leaky) one core radiator in the Delta. After going on the highway for a while, it heats up and boils out the hole in the top. The fan picks it up and splatters it all over the hot engine. So when you stop at a light, the whole frontend smokes like it's on fire. I had at least 3 people stop and tell me that they thought my car was on fire. It was fun, but overheating wasn't, so now I've got a nice 2 core.

Red face

when my wife was a little girl, her father was building a barn on their property. He used his old f-100 for a scaffold inside his new structure. the wife sez that when he finished, he came up to the house to get her and her mother to come check out the new barn. when they got there, the wife asked " how are you going to get your truck out?" no *****, he'd built the barn AROUND his truck. Door way was too small to drive out, actually too low as it was lifted...... we still don't bring that story up......
