The stupidest thing you have done in your car...

As the title says...whats the stupidest thing you have done in your car.

Be it dangerous, illegal, or just plain stupid.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

eek just one?

i shouted at a kid on a bike once. but i forgot that i had a lit cigarette in my mouth which fell between my legs.

as for dangerous....hhhmmm...been there a few times, but the one that springs to mind was 120kmh around kings park, with four passengers in my dads laser. i wanted to triple a speed limit, and the car wouldnt do 180, so i found somewhere witha lower limit. this was about 12 years ago...and i lived to tell the tale :)

Umm...

thats an easy one...

the stupidest thing I have done in my car, is let a guy called Mark P (ex mate) be a passanger in my car!

its not only cos I had to put up with his sorry ass all the way from Sydney to bathurst... and its not only the fact that he cut the vinyl on my door trim... its cos he is a total loser who I never plan to see EVER again..

Years ago I had a Mazda 808. There was a railway line that had a spilt level crossing with the difference in height of about 1.5 to 2 metres. One night I decided to jump my beasty off this ramp. Big run up, 80+kph, and 16 metres in the air later (we measured it) the Mazda landed, the front tyre popped, the shock punched through the engine bay and bonnet, plus various other bending type things, my elbow cracked on the hand brake handle and my head hit the side pillar. I acheived legend status amongst my friends (which seemed the most important thing at the time :dead: ).

Was it worth it? Nope. I was on $125 a week and it cost me close to $600 worth of repairs, not to mention the medical bills sorting out my elbow and the concusion. :oo1:

The things we do when we first get out licence. :s5

I was in a 64 chevy SS 409 at 70 mph in second gear and passed two police cars that had pulled a speeder over on the side of the road

thought it's safe and we all love each other, so i left the stereo with its detachable face,undetached! one mistake was enough to find my car next morning with no audio entertainment system:)or window glass:)and the console looks a bit weird with alot of wires hanging out.
