One of the boys even said to him give me a shout when you're at the door and I'll guide you on but the lad thought he knew better and tried to go on himself although he has never driven over a pit before 😎👍

I feel his pain ....

I had a old skool mini with a 1.3 metro lump on twin carbs , needed the rear rose bushes doing and you need a hydraulic press to get them out .

There was a little garage over the road , so I dropped it off at 8am ... 820 am I get a knock on the door , garage owner was standing there 🤔

" theres been a accident , I can't explain it , better pop over and have a look for yourself " 

I left my mini parked over the inspection pit and the had been working on a v6 Granada parked behind it . Their apprentice had been blipping the throttle on the Granada,  while the mechanic was at the back trying to locate a exhaust blow ....

Boy clipped the auto gear stick while revving it , it shot forward , hit my mini with such force that it leapt over the pit .hit the work bench and bounced back , then fell in the pit .

Poor thing was about a foot shorter and one side was caved in too .

My Mini mini was fubared 🙄

I would have been gutted if I had done that but i always try and take care of my gear, prefer to spend money upgrading and maintaining not repairing - was lucky no-one was in the pit
