They usually start blowing alot of smoke when that happens.... not that it happened to me. My son brought one back on a rope that " died when it got stuck" and smoked for 2 minutes after I finally got it started.

Now if you want to talk '69 chevy 3/4 ton on a gravel road after "happy hour" at work on a friday 30 years ago.. yeah that was me :beer:

 

edit** Just to add alittle more to the story, the "69s still had the gas tank behind the seat. I rolled it on its side, on a road the went through a rock quarry. It stopped facing the opposite way I was going and the top of the cab was less than a foot from the edge of the 45 foot high wall. If I didnt have a slider rear window, I probably couldnt have gotten out, the doors on a "69 weigh about 90 pounds. One of the first responders said if I had my seat belt on, it could have added enough mass to the top side to get it to roll over the cliff. I still have cassettes from that night that are etched from the gas leaking into the cab.

I feel lucky to have survived the "natural selection" phase of life. I delivered dynamite during that time too   :anvil_drop:

I remember seeing something like this happen at one of the garden tractor pulls, where a guy did a wheelie, had the whole thing go over backwards and had the steering wheel land on his chest. After they got the tractor off of him (still running), he got up, dusted himself off and tried to laugh the whole thing off as if it was all planned for our entertainment but you could tell he was a hurting unit! They told him not to show up with the tractor again until there were wheelie bars on it.

  Sure wish I got that one on video.  :hitting_self_roller:
