Ah, I was thinking more of the lock module failures that applied power
to the solenoids and left it there, preventing you from actuating the
linkage.

To be honest, I've never had a fear of getting trapped in my DeLorean.
I have, however, considered putting one of those emergency glass
hammers within reach so I could easily break through the windshield in
a bad situation. I'd imagine flipping a DeLorean upside dodwn, while
difficult to do, would not make getting out very pleasant.

Thanks for the story!
