    Chock the wheels dummy

    I had to remove the trans out of a caddy once and didnt want to tie up the shop rack so I did the job on my wedge trailer so I could leave it there till I was ready to put it back in. Well I wasnt thinking right and took the straps off the driveshaft and it wouldnt pull off the yoke so I pryed it off. Roll on 68 caddy. The drive shaft caught a trailer cross bar and bent the shaft like a pretzel and broke the tail housing. Rolled out into the yard and didnt hit anything. If the trailer was parked the other way it would have rolled into traffic. Or if I got caught between the driveshaft it could have been nasty.
