When the batteries of our cars decided to take an unscheduled break, the much beloved Automobiles became obnoxious Auto-No-Mobiles.
Back in those days of manual transmission, we would resort to doing a push start. How many of us still remember how to do this ?
Firstly, we needed to mount a charm offensive and sweet-talk some friends or neighbors or in dire cases, even strangers passing by, into showcasing their awesome muscle power.
There was a certain procedure to learn and master. An unskilled driver could leave the pushers falling flat on their faces ! Other instances could see the car doing a kangaroo dance routine. After a few tries, it usually worked.
Not sure if this could be done with Auto Transmission.
Haiz, perhaps they should bring back the “Encore” hand-crank !
