Reluctant and embarrassed to tell my story, but if someone else can benefit from my mistake............ When I first got my '57 done and was in the first few thousand miles, I started having hot start problems which I later found out was two separate issues. I had put a new rebuilt starter/solenoid in it before I installed the engine, but regardless of that, I figured I had a starter-mounted solenoid issue, so I pulled it and had a local shop check it out (knuck1947 here on the Hamb). They found a faulty solenoid as suspected, and replaced it along with cleaning and checking the starter. My starter is difficult to reach if the car isn't on a lift, so while I was spending the few hours putting it back in the car, I thought to myself, if this doesn't fix the problem, the next thing I'll check is the neutral safety switch, but everything worked great for 3 or 4 days, no hot start issues at all. I brought it to a local hand wash car wash place in town. Normally they wash the cars then they move them up front of the building for hand drying, but they asked me to move it up as they weren't sure if they could operate the old thing, lol. It was maybe 30 feet from the front overhead door. I got in the car to move it up, and no start. sheeeet! If I was home, I would have made a neat little jumper wire for the fuse panel to bypass the neutral safety switch, but I wasn't home, I was at a car wash trying to McGyver rig it. We found a piece of electrical wire, so I kneeled on the floor of the car wash with my head up under the dash and held the wire on the two terminals while I asked the guy who worked there to reach in from the passenger side and try to start it. It started right away, but I quickly found out the safety switch was doing exactly what it was suppose to do...........not let the car start if it's in gear. My FI engine goes right to 2k rpm when it starts, I jumped in the car trying to stop it before it headed out to the street with 4 lanes of heavy rush hour traffic. I just got in the car when my door hit the door jamb on the building and actually pushed my foot inside the car the last few inches. I was lucky. I was 70 at the time, didn't think this old man could still move that fast. I got the car stopped, but not before it creased and pancaked the side of my car from headlight to tailight. and did damage to the building. No one was hurt, but I had nightmares about being in my car with my foot jammed in the door heading into traffic. Turned out the problem was the outer casing for the shifter cable was slipping out of the retainer, so even though the shifter was hitting the detents, and looking like it was in in park or wherever, it wasn't. This car is my pride and joy, cleaned and taken care of, babied like I never do my daily drivers. It seems like I can find more unique ways to f#!@k it up that I've never done to my DDs, how is that?
