No, not the fab 4, the cars. [Split from the 'Which was your first Amp, old guys thread ...] I literally did this. My g/f's '74 Super Beetle snapped a gas pedal to carb cable, at the carb, back on frigid Xmas day in 1977 in Newport RI. It was running, but I could'nt accelerate. She had one of those steering wheel covers, so I unlaced it, and tied the lacing to the carb lever. I routed the string to the window, and drove home over the Newport Bridge by pulling on the string to give it gas. I thought I was the only one, but I guess not! Any other old Beetle war stories?
