Gave up with ramps ages ago. Over shot the pesky things a few times and ended up with the front wheels going over and landing on the enormous bags of sand in front.

Incase you're wondering, the big bags of sand didn't stop them slipping either.

Actually I damaged the front bumper and indicator on the damn things once. Getting up isn't nearly as hard as getting back down. Bringing the thing back down both the little gits shot forward like submarine torpedos and the driver side ramp caught the bumper as the car came bouncing down onto it. Needless to say that was a bit upsetting...

I've refused to use ramps again. The damn things are dangerous and should not be sold without rubber on the bottom to give them grip on the road surface.

I'd certainly never try with the questor as being an auto box I'd have hell getting it up and stopping it in time.
