After a little “incident” almost happened at a Cars on Cole event, I also carry chocks in the (low compression, weak brakes) Amphicar. Don’t want no trouble.

(Automatic spell-check thought I should “carry chicks” rather than the chalk they assigned to Red Fred! Just lucky, I guess.)

I carry a tire chalk in my vintage Maserati, my '37 Cord, my '97 Ford F150 4WD, and my '33 Pu, plus my 2 Fiat 124 Spiders, and my 67 Silver Shadow   One of my worst nightmares was arriving at my home to see the facade broken down by a run away car..  Bottom line; don't be a fucking dick.  secure your vehicle when it's parked, especially on a hill.   
   I now take the liberty of slashing tires that aren't curbed; for a good reason.  I've paid the price; twice.

I live near San Francisco, famous for its hills. They legally require
you  to do all these things when you park:

1) Curb your wheels

2) Set the parking brake

3) Put the car in park, or in gear if a stick shift.

They'll ticket you if you don't.  A run away car on a steep hill makes a
dangerous, expen$ive mess.

Re: [CitroenDSID] Remember to use your Handbrake!

David Russel
 

Scott, 

I had a sort of reverse experience.  After buying a Traction Avant and being told how delicate their gearboxes were I made a point, especially when parallel parking, to pull the emergency/parking brake on very firmly and leaving the car in neutral. As parking brake was on rear wheels the fear was that if a bumper was pushed hard enough by a lousy parker and the car was in gear that the gearbox casing could be at risk. 

After many months of ownership and driving & parking all over the place we took the Traction on a picnic at a hilly park. Parked on a steeper slope than previously, pulled the P brake on firmly and took foot off the brake pedal and the car started to roll backwards!  Stepped on brake to stop the roll and was barely able to get one more click on the parking brake. Foot off the brake and it started rolling back again. Had to leave that spot for a flatter one. 

At home removed rear brake drums, pulled P brake on firmly and found that none of the shoes budged. The p-brake cables were frozen in the sheath. Ken may recall this as we talked about how to free the cables. 

All those times the car was parked on Citroen and Arcane runs, trips to stores, libraries, movies, etc., it was free to roll, but fortunately didn’t. 

Certainly dodged one.

Re: [CitroenDSID] Remember to use your Handbrake!

Sorry to see this nicely restored car get a bath. I always left my SM in gear. The handbrake wasn’t that effective. Also you can’t easily kerb the wheels on an SM, it drives the wheels straight when you let go of the steering wheel.

speaking of go-karts.   Here's the car that builder/developer Henry Dolger had built for his kids by his mechanic.   It featured reverse, lighting, and a horn!   It's all steel, and has a new Tecumpsa engine.  The car was dismantled for paint, and it is not back up to snuff since, but is all there.  Unfortunately, I can't hang on to it, so must sell.

Last Chance to Submit your Vehicle for our June 21 Global Cars & Coffee!

David Russel
 

May be of interest to others.  One of their requirements seems hard to manage even if the full max of 45 seconds is used rather than the suggested 20-30 seconds.  There are other requirements as well but below is #1

  1. Record a 20-30 second video of your car using your phone (exterior, interior, engine, start up). Videos must be shot in landscape format (held horizontal like the photo). Videos must be no longer than 45 seconds long!

Maybe if you have an assistant, but that’s a lot of things to fit into the video. 

There should be an upcoming chance for a 4th of July event.  The Petersen page should have all the info or sign up for their notifications.
