You should've been in the vehicle, ya would've had your feet  on the clutch and break, but then again ya could've been on the accelerator, bit more speed woulda taken the door right off, save you the job

Yes Cliff, you were lucky, that's how Malcom Douglas died his vehicle lurched forward jamming him between door and a tree.

I can laugh now but at the time it wasn't funny.
What got me was, if your hand is on the key, you don't let go of it.  And you keep going  Twisted Evil
A younger brain probably would have let go, but not me.  For some reason, I had to hang on   lol!
I've learnt 1 thing.  My old navara can beat the handbrake considering the brakes have just been renewed.

That's why starter motors are used to tug 2tonne+ boats out of the water onto trailers.

Hi B/N's,

With my car being a diesel I have to put my foot on the clutch to start it, so that this type of thing never happens, maybe you could have the same things fitted to your car

Your a very rucky man

Hi Ron,
Have been around a few diesels over the years and have never come across one where you have had to depress the clutch?
I don't say it isn't a good idea, what vehicle you driving?

Hi Cliff

Start a demolition business

Nightjar missus has a diesel cruze and you have to have clutch depress to turn over the motor, a new safety feature. Talking safety the company holden ute has electronic park brake and I think is more dangerous than the old style, you still lift the switch to put on and to take off put foot on brake and depress switch down. Works alright but here's the catch, put in drive or reverse and hit accelerator and he presto brake disengages and away you go. Now have I not recently seen a few cars on the news where people have accidently put foot on accelerator and gone through the shop window or brick wall.

The old hand lever for me. Ian
