I just remembered another one from when I was a kid. My dad was driving a Cockshutt 30 that my grandfather had bought new. My younger brother and I, we were about 6 and 8 at the time, were riding in a trailer behind. There was some sort of garbage floating in the pond, so my dad decided to back the trailer into the pond, so that we could pick it up. There was a major flaw with that plan, however, because the brakes on a Cockshutt 30 are useless. So dad backed into the pond with the tractor in a forward gear, using the clutch to slow down the tractor. That worked fine until he stalled it, panicked, and pushed in the clutch and the brakes, causing the tractor and trailer to run merrily into the pond. When it stopped, my brother and I were perched like squirrels on top of each corner of the racks on the trailer, the only little bit of the trailer not under water. Dad restarted the tractor and drove us out, and I think he was more scared that we were. The garbage stayed in the pond.
