I wisely insisted we back it out before starting. When it started it blew mice nests across the road. My friend after just starting it, decided to take off and drive it to the car wash nearby. After just a few blocks the car veered ungainly to the side of the road ( brakes pulled badly) threw open the door and jumped out wildly as the mice ( huge ones) some up his pant legs and others followed with him. They must have been nesting in the chassis heater ducts and got scorched. "Barn finds" are sooo much fun.
too funny.
