    Hydraulic leg truck turning assist - video

    Hydraulic leg truck turning assist.

    This is the rare LiveLeak video with no fights, gore, or Mexican drug cartels shooting people. Or beheading people. Or torturing people. That plus the hokey "Synth Demo #3" music and the probably-unsafe-but-potentially-ingenious tool make this an internet classic. 1:02 video:

    I recall a car where a transverse mounted spare wheel could be lowered to slide the rear of the car into a parking space.

    Ha, Ha. very clever. My brother was extremely embarassed (about 1970) when as a passenger with his mate's fiancee driving and all the traffic stoped for ages while she tried to reverse park in the main street of Brisbane CBD. 4 guys who couldn't contain themselves got one on each corner and lifted the car, driver and passenger into the park to allow the busy traffic to flow again.
