Fantastic story. Thumbs Up | :thumbsup: Thumbs Up | :thumbsup: And, very interesting that the User Interface. All my manual shift cars have been down right so that is interesting about the up and left.

It also reminds me of a junky car I drove when I was young.
I drove it for a couple of years and it ran great.
One day at the top of a building (in a parking garage) I put the key in and it would not start no matter what I did.

I was angry so I got out and called my wife (before cell phones) and she came and got me.
It was Friday so I decided I would not drive the car again and I went out over the weekend and bought my first new car.

I drove the new car monday morning and then that evening I decided that I needed to get the junker out of the garage (off the building roof).
I went up to look at the car again.
For some reason I stuck in the key in again and tried. nothing.
Then I looked down at the automatic shifter -- Blush | :O Blush | :O Blush | :O It was in [d].
I eased it into [p] and tried starting it again and it fired right up.

Yes, for some reason I could remove the key and put it in the ignition even though it was in drive.
I drove the car out of the garage and sold it soon afterward.
