    A classmate in high school had a Crosley Hotshot. He was always finding it on the sidewalk or worse.

    I high school we had this girl that had a Crosly station wagon and she was always parking it under the grandstand in front of the agriculture building, just to be a bunch of smarties, we lifted it up about 10 feet under the announcers stand and put some 2x4s under it. It did cause a bit of confusion as we stood in the ag building watching when school got out. Funny, they never found out who did it!

    Was a teacher when I was in school no one liked, had a Pinto. Bunch of guys went up and managed to turn it sideways in his garage one night. He about had a stroke wanting the local police to find who did it and have them arrested. Wasn't part of it, but I did know who was since several of them were buddies. And yes, I did think it was funny since I'd had my run ins with him.

    Upon graduating college we chained an old rusty bicycle to bumper of a miserable professor that we had. Drove all the way from Florida to NY with the key.

As I sat there thinking about what the problem might be, I had the key still in the on position. I was runinig the stick shift through the gears, just as a nervous habit as I was thinking about it. All of the suddent, as I hit reverse with the shifter, the started started cranking! Turns out I had reveresed the wires for the reverse light switch and the starter solinoid, which were located in close proximity to each other.

    These days I think just having a stick is an anti-theft device!

    My dad told a story about how he and his brother put a mouse in my cousin's pocket and sent him into the house to show his mom. The little kid came into the kitchen saying rat, rat and pointing to his pocket. He was little and his mom did not understand what he was saying, so she checked his pocket. She never did forgive them!

    Every time I see a Motion activated paper dispenser in a bathroom I think of the Voice activated dispenser prank. I am tempted to try the "Paper Towel now" command.

    As a young guy with a desire to pursue photography I came into possession of a flash unit using flashbulbs with a screw-in base the same as a standard lightbulb, had an adaptor to use the newer 25B bulbs. Would screw the adaptor into the light fixture in the bathroom with a 25B in it when the "babysitter" was to come and keep an eye on younger bro and self... many other nefarious tricks were pulled on the poor girl as well.

    In 8th grade we would lift the Science teacher/Baseball Coach's VW Beetle (63) and put in the schools flower bed. Bed was little over a foot high. He kept baseball team late after school, no one fessed up to it. Did it again on graduation night. Didn't drive his 57 Ford Victoria.

    Re: New Prank

    In High School - 11th or 12th grade. I dresses up like this for Halloween (It's flour and water paste):
    Halloween85.jpg

    Conspired with a friend, as a Halloween prank, to scare the snot out of a girl we knew. My friend arranged a "date" with this girl and picked her up in his parent's Ford station wagon. What she didn't know is, while she was getting into the car, I was climbing up onto the luggage rack from behind the station wagon.

    Friend proceeded to drive with her out into country on a lonely dirt road (with me hanging onto the luggage rack for dear life). They started talking about different urban legends and at some point he asked her if she had ever heard about the "Albino Man" who was alleged to have died some horrible death in the vicinity of where they happened to park...(you know where this is going, don't you?).

    Just about the time she was getting good and scared about the Albino Man story, I dropped down and appeared in the front window, slamming my hands agains the glass and letting out a blood curdling scream!

    What I hadn't calculated was that she, sitting on a bench seat next to my friend, would freak so bad that she would drop the still-running car into drive and mash on the gas! The car started slipping all over the place on the dirt road and I fell off just in time to see the car speed about a mile down the road before my friend could get it under control (I didn't get hurt - much).

    Needless to say that girl never spoke to either of us again.

    But I bet your buddies all thought it was hysterical when told. The dumb things we all did as kids.

    I was once driving a car full to some Saturday youth gathering when I was about 16-17. Three in the front seat, buddy in the middle next to me. He reached down and held the wheel out of sight of the rear seat passengers and I turned around to the girl riding behind me and started talking. Took her a couple seconds to suddenly yell, "who's driving!!" and I said "ah it'll take care of itself", then turned back around. Luckily the road was straight and flat and no other traffic. Not the smartest thing I could have done, but we all know teens find themselves invincible.

    I loved VWs. When I was in college some friends and I took a Beetle apart and reassembled it on the third floor of the library (when a librarian was on duty). Another time, we took our RA's bug into the elevator (we had to lift the front end to get the door to close) and took it to the 8th floor.
