knowing how to do a compression start for a 1973 VW bug would come in handy. Today I was crossing Sunnybrook when I came upon a person that was stalled in the middle of a busy intersection. My faith in humankind was partially restored when several motorists got out to help push the car off the road onto a side street. And I couldn’t help but smile when the old trick of putting the car into gear after a moving start wound up starting up the engine again.
I miss my 1973 super beetle – it was a fun car. And, a good vehicle to learn how to do a compression start on.
