A Daily Pro Alternative to Calling Triple A

This is a trick I was taught by my father, a mechanic. Thankfully, I've only had to do it once, when I lost the key to my 1968 Monterey after a show. Obviously, cars these days have anti-theft devices. But, in a pinch, this is still a viable option if you lose your keys and don't want to wait for a tow!

  5. With my magnificent auto mechanic skills (absolutely NONE) even if I had to do it, it was more probably to get set on fire by a cat, because I wouldn't manage to do it...
