When I was about 14 i crashed our tractor into my dads brand new boat sitting in the driveway. I pulled up next to it after doing the lawn, was doing something for a bit, then popped the clutch thinking it was out of gear and went right into the boat.

I was like... ohhhhhhhhhhh shit.

Remote started my Evo in the garage once..... In first gear. You know that smell of burning electronics? That's what my starter smelled like. Luckily I had a bunch of cardboard boxes in front of the car so there was no damage.

@ilikemtb999 was present for this one..

When I was 16 or 17, I pulled up in front of a few coworkers that were standing around in the parking lot at my old job. When I stopped, I ripped the e-brake and just locked up the rear tires to stop. Only thing is, I forgot to put it in park and just left it idling in drive. For some reason, I decided to pop the hood and show Joel my sweet 3.1L. While looking under the hood, I revved it up by hand at the throttle body. The car took off and I just about ran myself over. Definitely not one of my brightest moments..

Some of you... Some of you should not have licenses.

Once, right after tossing on the coilovers on one of my old cars, @v6z24e and I decided to go test them out on the forest preserve roads around 83 (some of you street racerz know exactly which ones I speak of) We're ripping through turns at 100 when we notice (too late) the stop sign turned sideways... Needless to say, four brand new sticky-assed tires earned some gnarly flat-spots that moment, skidding through a four way intersection.

Back when I had my first Supra, I let a buddy drive us in it down to get food. He's the type that leaves standard cars in gear, I am not. Long story short, I hopped in to drive us back, started 'er up and in short order, seriously fucked up a parking sign's day.

Similar note, was driving one of my old shitbox Saturn's. Car out of nowhere started running on two cylinders and trying to die, necessitating a brake/gas/clutch dance like you wouldn't believe. Pulling into a parking lot (in a rather interesting area), this dance failed me. Trying to add throttle to keep it going, it suddenly fired on all four, causing the car to leap into a parked truck. Noting no damage on the cholo-mobile I struck, I promptly high-tailed it as fast as I could, again on two cylinders.

Fucking @Eagle did that to me when I first got the Mustang and there was a meet at Schaumburg Hooters. He left it in gear, I never did, and I went to leave, started it, and dropped the clutch because I was so used to it being out of gear. Good thing I had my foot on the brake.

...fucker.

That is the one thing that always fucks me up, when others drive my car and leave it in gear. I never check and always look like a moron when I start the car, it lurches forward, and dies.

Was helping a friend work on a engine swap. We had the new engine out of the car and the Harmonic balancer didn't want to go on nice and we used a pipe to get extra leverage on the wrench.

It was a cheap wrench and as we applied the extra leverage the fingers of the open end stretched. Well it stretched enough that it actually came off the tool. The pipe happened to be pointing up at a slight angle.

The wrench shot out of the pipe like a rocket, flew high enough that we had about 2 seconds to wonder where the wrench went. Then we caught it falling, directly over his firebirds engine bay.

The only saving grace there was that the hood had been removed to make pulling the engine easier so it fell right through the empty engine bay and hit the concrete below the car.

Too this day, I still can't believe how lucky we were. It could have hit anywhere, the roof, the glass, etc...

I helped a friend do brakes and gasket on the differential on his G body Buick (which EVERYONE had when I was in high school) in his garage. We did brakes first then jacked the car up onto ramps to do the rear end because he only had one jack stand. I managed to slice my hand open on an exacto blade somehow and left him to get the car off the ramps while I went inside to clean out the cut and said "Make sure you get brake pressure before you move the car" and went inside. His father was sitting on the couch watching TV, saw the cut and asked if I was ok and then got launched off the couch when "idiot boy" drove the car thru the garage wall sending his father over the coffee table and missing me by inches. He never pumped the brakes and I think he floored it getting over the bump on top of the ramps, or he panicked and floored the gas instead of the brake. Regardless he drove his car halfway into the living room and missed hitting me and killing his father by pure luck.

1. I was putting spring clamps on the front coils since the aftermarket lowering springs were far more expensive than some $15 clamps. I had to cut down the end of the bolts on the clamps because they were hitting the coils, so I was doing this with an angle grinder, huffing the sweet smell of burning metal the entire time. When I got done with the driver side, I went for a drive. After only a couple blocks, I could again smell the burning metal scent, but thought nothing of it. I got a few more blocks and noticed a huge plume of smoke coming from the rear passenger wheel well. I pulled off the main road, jumped out, and saw flames behind the wheel. I had been jacking the car up and down all day putting on the clamps up front, and it turned out I completely forgot to release the E-brake. Called 911 expecting my car to turn into a fireball and burn down every house on the block. The guy whose house I stopped in front of was able to get me his hose and I sprayed it out just before the police, the big fire truck, the EMT, and the ambulance showed up.

2. @RICH17, Zack ( @GottaRide28 ), and I lived together for a few years. Well, Zack had done some work on his 5 speed Focus that ended up bending the clutch depression switch out of the way of the clutch pedal. This meant that you had to press the button manually while starting the car. It didn't help that this car was also having issues with the clutch master cylinder maintaininig pressure. I had to move his car to go to work one morning, I backed it out of the driveway and with the clutch all the way in, it started to grab, so I had to stab the brakes, and it puttered to a stop, blocking the entire street as cars were starting to approach from down the block. I put it in first, and tried to feel for the switch under the dash, but I couldn't find it blind. In a panic, I jumped out of the car, got on my knees next to the open door, found the switch, pressed it, then reached into the car to start it, completely forgetting it was in gear. It jumped to life immediately and started to drive away from me as I'm kneeling on the street. I did the first thing I could think of and grabbed the interior door handle and the bottom of the steering wheel as it started to drag me across the street, up over the curb, across the sidewalk, across my front lawn. I reached for the E-brake and ripped it just before the car slammed into the front of my house, but it was of no use. The car continued and destroyed a wood and iron bench and hit the wall that Rich was sleeping right behind. Rich thought a bomb had dropped in the front yard.

I'm not the one that did it, but we were working on a friends truck (all of us were slightly intoxicated) whilst an even more drunk friend picked up the impact (had a 3/4" deep well IMPACT [pun intended] socket on it). Being the car enthusiasts we are, our first reaction to picking up said tool is to pull the trigger, we love that sound. Well he does, and quickly notices the socket went missing.

"What the hell happened to the socket?" he asked. Looking around we also notice our friend Jimmy lying on the floor and holding his right eye. Among the confusion the sound of the socket hitting the floor on the other side of the garage was heard.

We then all realized what happened Poor kid didn't even see it coming. Didn't need any stitches but he had a shiner for a long time after that.
