I once had a transmission failure in a Vauxhall Cavalier (nasty GM FWD
thing) on the 'up' ramp between levels 1 and 2 of Ringway Airport car
park in Manchester.

Ramp blocked.  Wheels blocked.  Can't get a tow truck - no headroom.

Solution - six large Manchester policemen and a trolley jack.

Duration - two hours

Result -   a nine-mile tailback on the M56, spreading back onto the
           M6.  Announcements on local and national radio.

Cost -     Invoiced $50 for "overstaying short stay parking time".
