About 20 years ago I was working on a 1969 F100 that is parked directly behind my new RX7, about 1 foot apart.
I am between both cars when I drop a wrench landing somewhere around the starter causing the F100 to lurch forward pinning me between both vehicles.
I thought the initial impact broke one of legs.
I'm thinking at least I saved the RX7 from a fender bender, but the F100 was determined to keep me pinned.
I realize if I was to get out from between both vehicles the F100 would hit my new car and probably push it into a wall in front of the RX7.
I needed to get that wrench that I dropped while staying between both vehicles to stop the starter from engaging.
I couldn't reach the wrench but I did notice the battery cables beginning to smoke, which was directly in front of me.
Hey if could disconnect a battery cable problem would be solved.
So I start yanking on the battery cables, damn these are on good and they are getting hot.
I start to feel like I am paniking because the plastic on the cables is sticking to my hands and I fear possible battery explosion.
Well finally I got one of the battery cables off.
The RX7 only suffard a slight dent from my ass hitting the rear of the car which I later popped out.
