Talking about hacked cars... I've got a fun one. (My friends call it Satan's Flamin' Chariot :) Don't have parking brakes. They consist of two chunks of wood in the passenger seat I jam under the wheels to keep it from rolling off. Wired the radio myself. Hooked it into some random wire back there. Works good except in cold temperatures (below -30C) There's a heat-sensitive loose connection (in the radio itself) To make it go again I clobber the dashboard a few times with a "parking brake" :) All the tires are bald & leaking, the windshield is cracked, and I can see out through the holes in the door when I drive (have to plug them up with something before winter rolls around :) ...Some trigger-happy neighbor's kids shot them in with a .22... Oh, yeah the best part. The connection on the starter solenoid is really loose, so I have to start it by jamming a srewdriver between connections. <grin> this car exists. No bullshit. Drive it to work everyday. :) Goes good too. 160 kph on the pavement.
