Worst Car Trouble Experience:  When Hurricane Rita came through Houston, we had a mandatory evacuation.  I packed up some stuff, hopped in the car and it wouldn’t start.  I was scared, kept trying over and over to get it to crank but it just kept turning over.  Pumping the gas, pleading with the car didn’t help.  So upsetting…I don’t want to have to live through that again.


  • Petra Frustrated the Caddy Won’t Start
    Starring - December 20th, 2012

    Shivering from the cold, Petra slides into the Cadillac where the ice cold vinyl seats don’t do much for warmth.  She spins the Cadillac over and you can tell that the battery is already weak, so it’s unlikely shes’ going to be able to get it started.  She’s annoyed with….


  • Petra is now trying to really get the car moved but you can hear and see her tires spinning as she tries backing up.  She even gets a running start but fails.  During her ordeal, the Bug stalls out and she can’t get it started again.


  • Petra Stuck & Stalling in the VW Bug, 1 of 2
    Starring - February 21st, 2012

    So Petra also has to deal with the Bug in the same spot that Hana originally got it stuck on a snowy day and Tinsley eventually got it out.  The ground hasn’t dried completely and when Petra finally tries to start moving, it doesn’t take long or much effort to….


  • This was the last video of the day with Petra and I wanted her to try and put the Coronet on the driveway.  I love having some of these cars parked on the dirty/muddy incline at the side so that it makes it very hard to move them.  Petra is….


  • Petra is dressed to go out and it figures that her old car won’t start.  She’s frustrated that it’s being a pain in the ass, you can tell by her body language and dialogue.  She keeps pumping the big floor mounted gas pedal, trying to get the Caddy to crank….


  • Petra Cranking the Volvo Late for Class
    Starring - April 14th, 2011

    Petra is already late for class and to make her situation worse, the Volvo isn’t wanting to start.  She’s getting really upset because she doesn’t want to flunk this class.  She keeps working the Volvo; cranking it, pumping it and begging it to start for her!
