^^I agree^^ Funny thing is, my late step dad would drive around all the time with one foot on the gas & the other on the brake. He was so used to driving a stick shift car that he never could get used to driving an automatic & this was back circa 1956. He put more than a few brake sets on that old `56 Olds.
