My first Vette was an '80 model, red with black, auto, just turned 100k miles. It sat for a year or so before I bought it due to a DUI by the previous owner. Had it a day or two and went to the mall with the wife. Coming down the entrance road into the mall I applied my brakes as I approached the light. Nada. Tried again. Nada. I calmly told her, "Brace yourself. I have no brakes." A goofy look, followed by a you're joking right? look and then she realized I was serious. It was a slight upgrade so I downshifted to second, then first and luckily the light changed and traffic started to pull away. I got into the right turn lane, made the turn and then turned into the parking lot for a restaurant and slowly applied the E brake. I rolled to a stop right as the front tires gently bumped the curb. I exhaled, unclenched my butt cheeks, and called a tow truck.
Turns out both rear calipers had been leaking and let go as I hit the brakes. By keeping my wits and a little luck I averted what could have been an expensive malfunction.

He should teach Slo over at the other place how to remove his fence for more parking on his own property

The chirps of the tires makes me wonder if he was pushing the clutch and letting it out instead of the brake.
