Hi all! I'm Pussy.I've been visiting the Forums for about a couple of weeks now - and everyone has made me very welcome - thank you guys! I've noticed that the posts that get the most views are (surprise surprise) - those about stucks. So, I thought I'd share my first ever stuck with you.I grew up on a farm in the midlands in the UK during the early '70's. For the Conoisseurs amongst you - the soil up thereis mostly sedimentary from the lastglacial period (uh?) - in other words, thick clay and rich dirt. And the weather isn't too kind in the Winter either, so heavy rains and snow meltwater meant that most of the time, the farm was pretty muddy. Dad used to get stuck in the plough fields in his tractor pretty often - and my Mom always had trouble getting her heavy Ford Zodiac Estate (station wagon to you guys) off the muddy grass parking area in front of the house. Shopping trips were almost inevitably preceded by much revving and spinning of her tires as she coaxed the beast into moving forwards! I used to watch all this going on and just yearned for the day when I could thrash a car around the farm too.Well - that day arrived when I was 17. ( I was a WILD 17 too - short skirts and high heels used to drive my parents to distraction when I went to the town for nights out or parties - and of course - it used to drive the local boys to distraction too!!!)My Uncle Dave had recently got back from a few years working in the USA - and he shipped back a 1965 Rambler Classic station wagon!! It was gorgeous - big (for us yokels), loads of flashy chrome, whopping engine, fast, soft comfy seats, flashy steering wheel - and hung low over big fat whitewall tires - fabulous!!He used to show off how powerful it was by reversing it back down the gravel slope to the equipment yard, then flooring it and fishtailing up the slope - engine roaring , with thebig rear tires whirling and spinning and shooting out roosters of dirt and stones. We (me and my sister, Hannah) used to sit in the back and lean out of the windows - whooping and egging him on to spin his wheels faster and faster.These little excursionsended when he blew a rear tire and had to wait 2 weeks for a replacement.Anyways - I'm getting sidetracked.Well - my favourite Uncle taught me how to drive in the Rambler - and I loved it! It was automatic, soI only had to worry about starting, steering and stopping. None of this changing gears nonsense!And it used to bounce and wallow over the bumps and thru' the holes in the tracks - and it was easy to get the tires to skid at the back.When I was 17 Uncle Dave went to Germany - and left the Rambler to me and my sis. Hannah was only 14 so Mom and dad wouldn't let her go in it - but that meant I had it to myself. I wasn't allowed out on the roads as yet - but I used to feel like a queen cruising around the lanes in this thing - and I always used to visit a lad called Mike whose parents had the adjoining farm. We used to meet some nights and on a Sunday for a teenage snog (kissing and groping to you guys!). I was pretty mature for my age and this used to get me pretty worked up - so on the way home I used to go down to the grazing meadow by the stream and thrash the car around for a while. The ground was always wet and greasy in the Winter months - and I used to have a wild time flooring the gas and feeling my rear tires flying round in wheelspins , skidding it round and round in circles making big thickmud marks and churning itup with my wheels.One particularly wet, dismal Winter day, I took it out for a bit of fun - and noticedI was getting really bad tire slip whenI even gently gassed it in the lanes. I got to the meadow and eased down the slope from the gate onto the flat grassy part and pressed on the gas pedal. Well, I started to slow down - and could hear my tires making a slushy hissing noise as they spun in the wet stuff. I didn't want to get stranded so I turned it around and gassed it harder. The engine roared and the hissing got louder and I could feel the tires spraying mud and grass up in the wheel wells. I kept my foot down and slowly slithered around to face the gate - got onto a bit of drier harder grass and started to move forward a bit more.WhenI thought it was safe I stopped and looked around - and there were these two thick brown curved grooves in the green field where I had been spinning up my wheels. And suddenly I felt all goose-pimply all over!I put it in D and gave it some gas and moved forwards a few yards. Then I shifetd into R and leant out of the window. I backed up onto the slippy stuff and immediately my tires started spinning and whining as I forced it to go where it didn't want to. Then I flicked it into D and the tires complained loudly with a hard zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz sound - and I sat still watching the white walls whirring in the mud. I pumped on the pedal - making the revs rise and fall and the tires spin hard and then slow - each time inching slowly forwards and digging thick ruts.After a while I was having a bit more trouble getting it to go forwards after I'd backed up 'cos my tires had turned the soil to slick soup. So I decided to call it a day.I drove up the slope to the gate - but as I got about halfway - I felt the rear wheels spin as my tires broke loose on the greasy mud and I just stopped dead. I revved up harder but I was getting nowhere fast from wheelspins. So I decided I needed a good run up.I flicked into R (I was getting good at this by then) and gunned it back down the slope - and ..ooooops! Oh dear! I went too far and felt the whole of the back of the car go squelch!........I stop dead and it stalled.Fuming at my mistake - I cranked the hot engine and the damn thing refused to start. Crank, cough, splutter....nothing. Oh Brother, I thought - I'm stranded. I sat there for a few minutes and had a crafty cigarette, then tried again. After a few hard pumps I caught it and the engine fired up. I gave it a really hard rev and the exhaust barked and growled - and all the birds flew out of the trees!!!I chucked it in D - rammed my foot on the floor (I was wearing black stiletto ankle boots I think) - and..........zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....nothing. Not an inch of movement. Just spinning."S**t!" (I'm normally not so common). I tried again - this time easing the gas in slowly - and getting a lazy ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss from my tires - both of them!!I opened the door - and was greeted by the sight of whitewalled rubber sunk down to the wheels, plastered in thickshiny mud. Ifloored it in reverse - and nearly got a faceful of slop! Into D again...ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!!"Dammit - I'm WELL stuck!" I tried it a few more times but all I did was dig my tires down so deep I was even spinning in idle!!!!Glory be - I wasn't going ANYWHERE after that little trick! I was completely bogged up to the hubcaps - back end of the car resting on the grass!!!No mobile phones in those days - soI had a cold and wet walk 3 miles home.And my rotten Dad - he just laughed all the way there and back in the lorry - telling me I looked like a drowned rat!!!!
Oooops! - I"m stuck!! My tires are spinning in the mud!!!!

great experience. the only thing i remember of the 60's rambler's were their hard to start ability. being cheap car and in the military many women had them and it was always fun watching them pump crank and revving them up. i was station outside madrid spain from april 1968-april 1970.
