A few mates and I got bored this afternoon so we took some cables off his car and see if it would still run... :)

Well, it wasted 10 mins of our afternoon (and our life!)

PS: Yes I know what the cables are ;) Just don't want to spoil the vid.

Watch that thing go hot in a heartbeat.

I was driving home from WalMart, getting my oil changed. With my old car, even knowing it will get hot after traveling some 50 miles, it lost coolant like mad, or would go hot in 2 minutes with the AC on, i was running on 1 cylnder (out of 8), couldn't get above 30mph, and knowing me not knowing much about cars, got stranded on a back road for an hour while waiting to put some coolant in to make it home.

We were just messing around. No intention of driving it like that.

I fixed the cylender problem, I got it running back on eight. It was just a pinched wire that was blowing fuses.

REMOVED, use BA image uploader.

The engine would maybe start without cooling water, but not without oil. As soon as the oil pressure drops to zero, the engine will die.

lol, it doesn't take much to [censored] all over the Ka's engine, since it's basically a fuel injected Ford Kent engine, and the original Ford Kent engine was designed for the Anglia back in the 60's...
