Okay, here's my contribution to the observance of Dan Hughes Day:

I was waiting for a friend to come over and help me remove the engine in
my '62 Corvair, a few years ago(1966).  It was 6:00 AM on a Sunday
morning, and I decided to get everything ready to go-I got underneath
and started loosening the motor mounts.  I guess I got a little too
close to the end of the threads and down it came.  When my friend
arrived, an hour later, I was still trapped under the engine/transaxle
assembly, with my hands wedged underneath so that I could breathe!

I learned my lesson, though. I sold the Corvair and bought a Mini. (The
engines are lighter.)
