Jumping the starting terminals

Jumping the terminals got it back home! Thanks all

Used the junction box w/ a insulated piece of copper wire and insulated pliers..used the smallest screw in the box,negative I think, and the screw next to it, got a few sparks and jump started the car and my heart a little bit too!
Had to cram the copper wire in a little bit to get past a bit of corrosion.
The battery looks like it is leaking too...corrosion in the pan along the bottom of the battery box. Next project. That battery is not that old either?? Weird

The steering locking mechanism seems to function and did not lock up, I can hear it when I turn the key
Thanks for the help all, saved me a tow bill!
Roy you have a PM

I'm surprised no comments about the taxi driver??
