Tbird, posts like this are the reason I hope you never turn your back on VW.

Re: I just did a Tbird.. (Tbird Pimpistik)

Heh. I've done that. Dad says, "here hold this and check for spark while I crank it over" I get zapped and say, "yup, definate sparkage" then yell at him for zapping the hell out of me. no more!

Re: I just did a Tbird.. (Jetta2dr)

haha, that sounds like a classic dad thing to do....i cant begin to tell you all the things that have happened to me that started with a simple "hold this..." or "stick your hand in there to see if...." and the "im gonna need you to crawl under there and wiggle that for me..."

Re: I just did a Tbird.. (bpfoley)

I'm sorry dude, but I'm crying laughing at that. I do hope you're OK though. When I was little, my dad was trying to fix our '83 Malibu (I was about 7 yrs old) and he had the lid off the aircleaner. Suddenly the car backfired and my dad went flying backwards. My grandpa told him NOT to do it...
