This is a question Cars

"Here in my car", said 80s pop hero Gary Numan, "I feel safest of all". He obviously never shared the same stretch of road as me, then. Automotive tales of mirth and woe, please.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Mate had a knackered old fiesta that he use to drive into the ground on a regular basis, when it fell to pieces he would have to wait until payday to get it repaired. One day when driving through town something went clunck, it spluttered and he safely ground it to a halt at the side of the road. Somehow he ended up parked just off the double yellow lines and in a marked bay. He was off on holiday that weekend so decided to leave it where it fell. So two weeks in Magaluf later he came back to find the car gone. But it hadnt been towed away.

He had forgotten that the car was left in Colchester. He had forgotten that Colchester is a large army town. He had forgotton that this was at the height of the IRA bombing campaign. He had forgotton that about 3 doors down from where he had parked was the army recruitment centre.

The entire town centre was shut whilst a robot carried out a controled explosion on his orange fiesta, destroying it even more than his lack of maintenance had done. And from memory controled explosions aren't covered by third party fire and theft. Luckily all he got on his return home was a visit from a friendly MPC rather than an orange jumpsuit and a one way trip to Cuba that he would have got today.
