I was wondering where they all went.

I used to have a 2000 Camaro with a 5-speed. One time I pulled it into the carport at my old house, and obviously didn't set the parking brake. My wife pulled up in her SUV later on that night and parked behind it as the driveway was single-car width. I went out the next morning, noticed the rear bumper of the Camaro was gently touching the front bumper of my wife's SUV and thought she was just being a smart aleck. I backed her's up and parked it on the street. As I was walking back up the driveway the Camaro comes rolling back. I fortunately had left it unlocked (it was a decent neighborhood, not great but decent enough to leave the cars unlocked) so I was able to jump in and stop it. Learned my lesson!!!

It had rolled down my driveway and was nose first in the ditch on the other side of the road, blocking the east bound lane of a very busy road. Some of you have been here so you guys know how flat my driveway is. Just shows how good the wheel bearings are. Luckily nobody was coming from either direction so no harm done.

Moral is ALWAYS use the emergency brake, especially with a stick. I don't know how I did not plus I left it in neutral. Senior moment I guess.


It was looking for your car cover....

Bill, maybe you should get an anchor for that thing just to be on the safe side.
