Was out with the wife and (young) kids in the GTO. Heading home on a side street, playing around blipping the throttle to bounce the car around. Suddenly, no throttle response. Open the hood, throttle cable broke near the carb. Search car, find a paperclip, bend it up and reconnect cable with it, although at a higher RPM than normal idle. Make it home safely, special order a new cable. Good times.
