I was at work and my friend (mike) called me up telling me he just bought himself a new car. 1998 Audi A6 2.8L. anyways, he needed someone to help him take his old car back to his house. his old car was a 1991 Olds Cutlass. So we meet up at the dealership after i got off work. After congratulating mike on his new purchase. we go to where his olds is parked. this car was trashed.

it was covered in dents (been flipped several times), it had no exhaust system whatsoever, and a completely shot alternator, ground up brakes, and some other problems. mike explained to me in order to keep the car alive, one has to constantly rev the car while in park or nuetral. so we set off. soon, the car dies on me. we push the car to the side of the road, and jump start it. right after that, i put it into reverse, and it died again. the olds did that a few times, and mike got fed up. he threw me the keys to the audi and hopped into the olds.

after doing a burnout, we got the car into drive and it actually moved. we hit the first stoplight, and mike started furiously revving the engine, in order to keep this damn thing alive. people looking around had the look on their faces that said "what is this idiot doing?" it was a long light, and after watching his car for a few min, i noticed something coming from under the car. there were nonstop flames shooting from where the exhaust system should be. after a quick call to mike, we determine its alright to drive this final drive. lights green, we go. after a while, we are on a two lane road, stuck in traffic. mike is doing the revving routine again, and i see that the car's situation has gone from bad to worse. soon there is thick black smoke billowing from underneath the car. the people behind me kept their distance becuase they didnt want to be in the smoke.

mike tried popping the hood to get some more air in, since the smoke was also coming from the front of the car. eventually, mike calls me and tells me he lost power to the car, and is wondering why the car is still moving. right away, i notice there is a thick patch of oil coming from the car on its right side. i tell mike we need to pull over asap. just a few ahead there was a dirt lot. we pull in there, and just when the car is put in park. it finally died. we popped up the hood, and had this nice smell of burning oil, and rubber. the engine was saturated with oil, and the radiator was pooling oil on the bottom. it took us about 20 min to remove all valuables from the inside of the car, in the meantime, the thing would not stop smoking. then we just left it there, to pick up on a truck tommorrow....

i still cant believe the luck of mike, he just bought another car, less then 2 hours before, then boom, his old one is dead.

That reminds me when we were driving our van down hwy9 and it started smoking and my mom and my sister got out of the car and walked off a little ways and it exploded into flame...I was sitting at home watching Batman (hehe) and all of a sudden my dad comes home and Im like "...ok..." then following him is a tow truck towing my black, chard fan with huge burn holes in it and it was filled with that kind of soapy foam stuff that the fire department uses to put out smallish fires...it was pretty amazing.
