The throttle decided to stick wide open on my '63 Comet one night, automatic. I drove the rest of the way home just turning the key off whenever I got going too fast.

Broke the grip side knarp off the throttle cable on my Kinetic one night. I pulled the cable out of the housing and kind of tied it around my leg so I could work the slide that way.
