I sold a Boxster on eBay about eight years ago to a lawyer in California. He sent the carrier for pick-up and the guy shows up in a two-tiered, ten car unit (don't know what the call them, exactly), but not a high-end car carrier. He calls from the entrance to our neighborhood and says he can't make it down the streets. I drive it up to the entrance and he asks me to drive it up on the truck. I say 'no way'.
He hops in, and slowly moves it up the ramp and about halfway, it starts to need more right foot and he guns it! It leaps forward and hits the car in front of it on the carrier! I am freaking out, because this thing is mint and the buyer is an attorney. He backs it up a little and the only thing damaged is the front license plate bracket. Very lucky...
