[Vwdiesel] cam lock -- Pump Lock

I think my best was setting my travel coffee mug on the top of my Rabbit
on a -10 degree F day; I drove a half hour to work, only to find the mug
frozen, cracked, and ice molded to the roof of the Rabbit.  I then
understood the funny looks on the way to work...

(I have forgotten to take out the injector pump lock also, but after all
of the similar stories, that seems common...)

The other not so serious one is forgetting to take the tin can (to keep
rain out) off the 2 cyl JD tractor muffler and starting it up...
launches the can and scares the heck out of you...

And driving away forgetting to put the oil filler cap or the dipstick
in.  Talk about messy.  The sad part is that I drove around all day
that I must have spilled oil, that's why there was smoke coming from
the hood ...
