What's the meanest trick you ever did to a buddys car ?

Back in the old days I had this,,, I hate to say friend, because we were always busting each others chops, but during the year that I lost my license for drag racing, he would pick me up when he saw me hitchhiking, and take me here and there. He drove an old VW beetle that did not have a gas guage, just a petcock under the dash that you would put on reserve when you ran out of gas,,, just like a bike. One night he was really giving me a bad time while going down the road, so I just reached under the dash and put him on reserve,,, when he ran out of gas he was out of gas. I did that to him 3 times before he figured it out. He really did have it coming.

I put one of those 3 foot long strap ties on the driveshaft of a buddys car. He started it up, but it in drive and.....


Thwack, Thwack, Thwack for about 30 minutes before it started to really piss him off, and he got under his car and cut it off.

Shaving cream can in dry ice. Freeze it solid. Cut the top off and drop it in a sunroof or open window on a nice warm summer day. The results are spectacular.

A friend, who raised hogs at the time, once found a very thin strand of copper on his driver's seat. When he tracked it down, it grew insulation and went to the ignition coil.
When he found out which friend gave him that gift, he filled the friend's washer bottle with some boar urine that he had kept in a milk carton in the sun for a while.

I don't treat my friends this way, but:

Get some brass tire valve caps with rubber seals in them. Remove the valve core and quickly screw a brass cap on it. Loads of fun the next time he checks his tire pressure.

If he doesn't have remote entry, super glue does wonders for his door and trunk locks.

Butyric acid in the cowl vents. Smells like a yak vomited in the car. Only way to totally cure it is to replace the car.

A friend of mine filled up someone's car with packing styrofoam, a Saab convertible, all the way to the door tops. I never saw it, just heard about it.

The spray expanding foam

- does wonders to quieten down the obnoxious neighborhood kids' bullet bike.... for good! Until he figure it out -

Sardine oil on engine block is good for a laugh -

Peanut butter up under pullup door handles -

Some buddies tried the blocks under the diif trick on my Jeep in high school - idiots forgot it was 4WD & so while they were laughing at a distance, I engaged transfer case & drove off the rear blocks...

We won't discuss a small bit of blackpowder in 1157 bulbs -

Spray painted a dixie cup black and then shoved it inside the air cleaner intake. Totally blocked the intake and it was pretty much invisible.

You buy it in a bottle from a trapping supply house. It's used as a scent on traps to catch critters for your wifes new fur coat.
