Have you ever done a Basil Fawlty to your car?

Has your car ever let you down in the worse possible way, that in a manic rage you have given the car a bit of the old Basil Fawlty treatment ?

Years ago I once was desperate to get to a job interview, I was running a bit late when my car got a flat tyre, I went to get the spare and one look at it found it flat (and yeah should have got the flat tyre in the boot fixed straight away)....in a fit I kicked of the wing mirror and cracked the side window where I punched it.

Well i once kicked my mini when it took a load of skin off my finger when changing the rad.

and I punched my nova whilst altering the timing and the git gave me an electric shock, regretted that as I punched the bliddy bonnet hook, ouch
