Ever since I saw Steve Guttenberg’s character do his version of “valet parking” in the opening scene of “Police Academy,” I have wanted to flip a car up and drive it on two wheels.
Not that it’s that simple, as the article explains….
If you plan on trying this, be prepared to roll your car onto its roof. Because you will. Every stunt driver who performs this technique has rolled many cars learning how to do it. Tonny Petersen, a 78-year-old Danish acrobat–turned–stunt driver, who has been high-skiing cars for more than 50 years, says, “Oh, my God, I’ve rolled my share of cars. I have no idea how many. When you are driving high skis, you have flat tires. Tires explode, and the car goes one of two ways depending on the surface, potholes, and soft spots.”
Hmmmm….in retrospect, the movie did come out during my junior year of high school, and chances are I thought “high skiing” by the front of the gymnasium might help my chances with the ladies.
I don’t think I have much of a chance in selling it to my wife now, although the kids would probably get a kick out of it.
