I've got a good one. I was once a live-in caretaker for a wealthy
gentleman, and I "borrowed" his Ferrarri Mondial convertible. Halfway down
the driveway (long driveway), the fuel line burst and was absolutely
dumping gas all over the exhaust manifold. After re-starting my heart, I
pushed the Ferrarri all the way back.

my most interesting 'i smell gas!' incident was with a '69 pontiac lemans
i once had. i was in the gas station filling up and i started smelling
very strong gas fumes. for awhile i just figured it was the tank/pump
making the smell, but it kept getting stronger and stronger. i finally
looked under the car and there was a shore section of rubber gas line
in between the fuel tank and the copper line which ran forward to the
compartment that had several small holes in it which were squirting gas
the muffler. very scary ....
