I, for one, would like to try the following (DEFINITELY NOT TO MY CAR!)

1) park a car
2) put it in neutral
3) rev the hell out of
4) With the foot still on the accelerator
5) turn off the engine.

Then start it again and see/hear what happens.

You?

Why the hell would you want to try that?

Because I want to see what happens?

You'd probably flood the engine with gasoline and it probably wouldn't start again..

Here's another one... For automatics.

Put the car in neutral and have it roll down the hill, and then slam it into Park while in motion.

That'll take you forever. But I know how you feel, I've cracked my headlights open many a times. But I'm still scared to do it. That...

And it's a s***-ton of work. It's pretty much an all-day project.
