The old man, seeing 2 red zens parked near each other, had mistakenly driven the wrong zen home.

Hey Mr. Bombastic and Godfather.... the M800 was around 10 years old... and due to frequent use of keys, the locks (both the door and the ignition) had lost their orginal shape and had become so wide that you could insert any piece of flat metal and open the lock!

And BTW, that photo of M800 is very nice Mr. Boombastic. I wonder where the accessories are bought from?

Godfather... the same story with the Ignition as with the door lock... it had become so wide that you could insert any key or piece of metal in the ignition and it will start the engine.... Even a screw driver would have started that car.

nice idea will check that today.

but there some other major problem with me.
if i have to get out of car for few seconds,i close the lever n then close the door, i mean i lock the door each time i get out of my car.
this time i locked the door with key inside.
its was entirely my fault
open window saved me a lot of times, but this time no window was open

another funny old story...

When i lived in the US I lived in teh boonies. Hence we used to carry the spare car key on us. Anyway one day I realsied that I had locked both my car keys inside the car (the spare was in my tennis bag in the trunk).

I called the cops (now this is in the 80s with no cell phones etc..). They show up and with a slim jim opened my car in a jiffy. I got into my car all excited and happy; then realised i had forgotten to thank the cops. So I jumped out of the car and am thanking the cops when along comes a gust of wind and slams the door, while the key is in the ignition and the engine is running (hand brake was on). You should have seen the look on the cops face!

First he has never seen a non white person in his life and the 1st one he comes across is an idiot (me)!.

After that day I got one of those magnet spare car key carriers. It is a little plastic box with a magnet stuck to one side. you keep the spare key in the box and the stick the magnet under the car. I removed the rear number plate and jammed the box between the number plate and the car body.

My aunt born June 1918 still drives. She drove in NYC too. Dont knock these oldies. When we were visiting my Godparents in LA (in 2000) my wife and my godmom had gone shopping.

After they returned my wife had a huge smile on her face. I asked he what happened. Seems like someone cut my godmom off on Hawthorne and she hunted them down pulled up next to them and gave them the "bird". My godmom was 80 at the time.
