1961 Ford F100, about 40,000 miles.
I agree... I wonder if he was relying only on the parking brake, and it failed? It looked like it was moving fast.
This was at my local ramp 2 years ago:
If he was self-launching, he would have had to leave the car there while he docked the boat. If it’s not a busy ramp, this would be fine. In theory, that is.
That video always makes me sick and yet, I believe everyone was more or less OK as in, not dead or maimed. Amazingly. It’s like, “oh, THAT’S why they put padded upholstery on the insides of the cockpit.”
Self-launching, I guess. If the ramp isn’t busy, it’s no big deal. But umm I would recommend a wheel chock.
I think I get about 11 in my truck. But that’s pretty much exactly what I’d expect.
This is like the marine version of WHY DID YOU TURN
“Super - Ahh, Who Cares?”
I assume you also saw the title of my post on these, haha. I still haven’t driven it with the new shocks installed. Tomorrow. It’s always a day away...
That will be infinitely better than the one I see at work, someone literally duct taped a backup camera to a minivan’s rear bumper. Not only does it look like crap but it’s now the first thing to get hit by anyone ELSE carelessly parking, or by your knee when you reach into the car... just... why
“super clean” actually was
Those shocks look like the ones I just pulled off my ‘61 Ford.
Our 2012 Volvo is in proximity key purgatory where you have to stick it in the dash, but there’s a push-button start right above that. Then, once it’s running, you can take the key out completely and, though I have not tested this, I’m pretty sure you could leave it somewhere and drive away, which would be bad.
If only there was a place to put a key when you got into the car... like, a dedicated slot for it, somewhere easy for the driver to reach, maybe right on the dash or the steering column. And then instead of a separate push-button, you could just like, rotate the key to start the car! That would be so simple! It…
lol it’s all relative. Light cleaning for me involves spraying the car with a garden hose, full stop.

Someone else alluded to that, and now it makes sense. It needs to be able to move, some. Also, for how little metal was worn off the stud of the shock, there’s no way it rounded out the holes on the truck that much and so perfectly round.
Almost 10 years ago now I drove into Canada via Maine overnight to pick up a car that a friend had imported from Germany. I thought crossing the border was going to be dicey because I discovered - while waiting in line at customs on the way up - that my passport expired the next day.
Weird, I’m not sure why you’d want to turn that off. But yeah that kind of makes sense.
