On my 87 5000S, I park the car using only the reverse gear to hold the car
still. My friend was rocking the car back and forth and though I left the
car free in neutral with no parking brake. The driveline and engine was
just moving so much. But I should be happy since my clutch foot is so
clumsy. The 'play' absorbs all my errors. :-)
