My careful driving in the MK2 Polo:

It was not easy keeping on those ridges when the tracking was off, the brakes didn't work, we had only 2 gears and if you slowed down the engine cut out. This might explain why I didn't successfully keep two wheels on the ridge.

But that car took so much abuse. Note the gravity tank on the roof (we ruptured the fuel tank - twice). And, er, the exhaust on the roof. And the rather crashed appearance (from writing off a bus in Russia - no speeding involved).

I loved that car. I hope it's gone to a better place.
