    I think the phrase 'Wile E. Coyote, SUPERGENIUS' comes to mind here!

    That almost happened to me once. The gummed-up mechanism on the E-brake (my 1980 Z28) popped while I was on the ramp, loading my Sea Doo. It went in as far as the rear bumper (exhaust pipes burbling underwater). I have never moved so fast in my life![​IMG]

    They say the cheapest form of entertainment is to sit at a busy boat launch [​IMG]

    Man, that is incredibly stupid. It's amazing what people can think of.

    Haha, towing a sea-do with a 1980 Z28, oh man that's funny.

    I'll bet Chevrolet would have paid big bucks for a picture of that.

    In the incident in the pictures, are we sure that they really had the PWC in the back of the vehicle? It is possible that they had it on a trailer and then the e-brake failed or someone accidentally put the vehicle in reverse and could not back out. This would account for the proximity of the SUV to the PWC. Also, if you look closely, I beleive the PWC is turned sideways in the fist picture and the camera is looking straight at the back of it and it is not actually in the SUV.
