I never belived it could never happen until it happened to me, found my Escort stopped infront of a wall at the bottom of my street for some reason that day I didn't leave it in gear and the handbrake cable snapped in the middle of the night. First thought was it had been stolen. The most lucky part was there was normally a car parked infront of that wall but luckily it wasn't there when my car hit!

Yeah I told her, but she wont listen, you know what women are like mate !

Jeez. Yeah that was lucky Mikey, kind of.
