    I roll the driver window down anytime I get in my car to move it in/around the shop, I don't care if its 10 degrees or 100 degrees outside. Its just habit.

    I remember a funny thread back in the day on the corral of someone who backed out his fox, shut the door and it was somehow locked, keys inside, electric fan not on. ****!!!! He grabbed something and busted the window in.

    See....it could be worse.

    A coat hanger will open a new edge all day long. Just stick it between the seal and the top of the window and hit the unlock button.

    Long line at the bank drive through today, I may need a new motor.

    There’s potential here...

    You could've had that car open in minutes by just lightly pulling on the glass and sticking something thin between the glass and weatherstrip to hit the unlock button.

    I once locked my keys in my convertible with the top down. I freaked out!

    Yup. I locked my keys In my car once with it running. Took about an hour or so to get it open. Now I do the same as you, roll the window down a bit if I get out with it running.

    Reminds me of all the extra resources it takes to own, and store a Cobra.

    Flat stoppers, Stabil, 93 octane, Mom's garage, ramps, car cover, AAA, Spotter Mom.

    Porcelain tile ...... one day!

    If the fan was not working I would have wedged something in the window to try and unlock it. Or broken the window if that failed. I never entertained getting into a locked car (not a thief by trade) but obviously with "practice" it would be easy. The average person don't mind a little scratch on plastic or windows seals either. That's what holds me back since I am too worried about scratching anything on the car. It's easier to get shit done when you don't care about it.
