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.

In an ancient Ford camper van
converted from a tipper truck, in the depths of Wales, with your mate sitting beside you criticising your driving, it's great fun to say 'Well YOU drive then!' and hand her the ignition key.

As it's a Perkins diesel engine which needs no electrical input it'll run perfectly well, while your mate pees her pants laughing.

You can take the key out of my old MGB ignition while it's running.
Just a loose keyhole, really. It does tend to freak the passenger out, mind you. Particularly when you hand them the keys to get into the glovebox while driving and watch the realisation slowly dawn.

That's even worse than my method.
Mind you, the ignition was on the dashboard (no steering lock to worry about) so in theory a stroppy passenger could've removed the key for themself!
