Well today about 11 am I decide to take my 85 GT for a drive to see if lower pressure in the old tires would help lessen the shaking. Took the car for a 20 mile drive and it was better but I still need to get new ties. Got home and parked in the garage and got my opener and sunglasses in my hand got out and locked the door and closed it. Guess what, I left the keys in the ignition! I tried to use a coat hanger to pull the passenger inside latch forward for about 15 minutes without any luck. Called AAA for lockout service about 12:15 and they said someone would be there by 1:15. AAA called at 2:00 and said they were searching for a locksmith to come out because they had changed contractors in my area. I decided to try again myself. I first tried again with the coat hanger with no luck then a found a small carpenters square that I thought might work. I was able to pop it open after about 5 minutes of fiddling with sliding it inside the door in the key area. Whew!! I was finally able to get inside my house and get something to eat! All my keys including the house key were on that key ring.
I am the worlds worst locking keys in vehicles. Many years ago I came up with a plan, hidden house key outside the house, vehicle keys on a key ring by themselves, second key ring in my pocket with house keys and door keys to all vehicles and a hand cuff key just in case. I can always get in the house to retrieve the spare keys inside, I always have spare vehicle door keys in my pocket and I can escape hand cuffs if necessary, no heavy bunch of keys to damage vehicle ignition switch. Works for me. Police Chief gave me the hand cuff key back in the 60's, he thought I would need it due to my fast driving habits.
