Help, my garage door wont open and my car is stuck inside. Well... I don't actually need any help... because I am using the car as a Locost Donor and I'm cutting it up and walking it out my man door :

Before it got stuck in my garage:

I'm going to have to make a second trip to the recycling place:

Anyone looking for a 2.3L Lima 4 cylinder engine and/or a RAD4 manual 4 speed transmission? or parts?

Now back to your regularly scheduled GRM forum topics...

Roll bar and tube bumper? Demo derby refugee? Looks like you barely beat mother nature in returning it back to the earth.

Yeah the guy who made it didnt understand the difference between two classes of demo cars; the big boats with V8 and the fwd 4 cylinders.

No doubt about the rust, I thought about getting a Tetanus booster shot.

use the II's drive shaft to create a worm gear to open the garage door, use the steering wheel to crank it with :)

I thought proper procedure when your garage door won't open is to call 911, not cut the car up???

I suggest why don't you try to consult to the professionals? It would be easier for you.
