Topic: Going parking
#1 Jan 28, 2008 at 3:06 pmI'm sure most of us older guys and gals have done it, well the time I remember the most was on a wet and rainy evening, it was just before darked when we parked out in the boon docks, out in the woods in a slight downhill place ,it was cool the raindrops on the roof the 8 track player playing the Classics Four, well 2hrs later, it was time to leave, of course the windows were fogged up for some reason, so when I got them wiped clear, I noticed we were not in the same spot, it rained so much that the hill became slick and we had slid down about 100 ft and was beside a little stream, how we didn't feel the car moving, I don't know, there was no way in the world driving back up that slick hill, so we had to walk, slipping and sliding back up the hill and 2 mls back out to the main road and hitched hiked home. We both were soaking wet, I had to get my Voltswagon toed up the hill the next day, and she never went out with me again, Beat that one. Rick.

I then rolled down window 1 inch to see a policeman, my girl panics she know this guy and friend of her retire police DAD. She then started to cry and said please don't tell my DAD, he said go home and I won't. This was on my last night before going to boot camp, year 1966, what a send off.

#9 Aug 8, 2008 at 11:00 pmI guess would have to be the night I parked in what Thought was a nice dry spot in between some trees. We were in my 68 GTX and though I was lucky enough not to slide down a hill, it wasn't a good experience. It turned out that what looked like a nice private spot was actually a mud pit. When came time to leave it was like driving on ice. I was lucky it was the start of winter and I had on my snow tires. I know some younger people may not know that we always had 2 sets of rear tires. I kept hitting the clutch and rolling it back and forth. I took about 20 minutes to finally get out. The biggest surprise was the next morning when I saw it in the daylight. It looked I was out 4 wheeling. The entire car except for the grill was covered in mud. The roof, both sides, trunk and the under carriage were all brown. That was the only time I was ever kicked out of a car wash . They said I was clogging up their system with mud .

#10 Sep 10, 2008 at 3:11 pmWell here is a nice "Parking" story.
About a year ago I went and picked a girl up in my R/T right after I put on my new set of long tube headers. We went to the top of a mountain behind my house that has a paved road all the way to the top where they are trying to develop. We got to the end of the road and done our business.. by the way LineX takes the skin off your knees and back.. but anyways we were leaving to take her home and the cops called her. Apparently her crazy parents woke up and found out that she still wasn't at home so they called the cops.. This girl is of legal age so no big deal. I get about 2 miles from her house and all of the sudden the most gosh awful noise ever came from under the truck. I thought "great I blew the motor." so I put it in neutral and kill the motor and pull over and start looking and I found that the welds on the collector on the headers completely broke and the collector had got wedged between the header pipes and the wirering harness that goes back to the fuel pump... so needless to say it melted all of those wires together and the truck wouldn't start back.
After getting a friend to tow my truck to my house and I get my Tacoma to take this girl home it was 5:30am. She desides that she didn't want to go home and wanted me to take her to one of my co-workers house.. So I take her there and drop her off and come to find out that her parents kicked her out and she had to go live with her aunt and uncle in Colorado.
I know its a long story but probably the craziest thing that has ever happened to me.
