Today, I was driving home with my dad after buying a new truck. We were on the freeway and the engine wasn't revving up very much. My dad thought that something was wrong with my transmission, so he reached over to change gears. Most cars won't go into reverse at high speeds. Mine does. FML

Geez dude! 1. get a new Dad! 2. get a new truck - I presume something broke (or crashed) when Mr synapse changed gears for you? - For those asking, my take is: * the truck is (was) an auto; * it was revving low because it has a higher top gear than OP's Dad is used to (could easily be - truck is new - could have a 5 speed gearbox or Overdrive); * dipstick Dad decides truck must be in the wrong gear (FAIL - that would really only be a problem if the engine were revving too HIGH); * so dipstick Dad tries to shift to a higher gear; * instead of going from 4th to 5th, he goes from 5th to Reverse (via Neutral - I'm impressed...); * truck engine and/or gearbox puke 3 shades of brown and/or truck spins or rolls

Hahahahahahahaha Thts Funny

Is this talking about an automatic car as opposed to manual? coz if it's manual, you were in too high a gear that's why it wasn't revving!

Let me guess, a Ford? lol

A Chevy would do that too, buddy.

Most new cars have reverse lockout. The only brand of car/truck that I knew to allow a gear change (auto) without pressing the brake pedal were Dodge/Plymouth/Chryslers.. But still... this was a while back. I call BS on this shit. full anyways.

Full=android's autocorrect of FYL. whoops.

the car could be old and not have reverse lockout...

Can you describe the noise it made? Must have been special.

I call bullshit on this one...

I call bullshit. No vehicle, be it automatic or manual, is capable of such a gear change because the engine is simply incapable of performing such a manouver.
