FORBES – The owner of a 2005 Bentley Continental was unable to start his car after not driving it for several months. But with an alternative battery he managed to get it started and parked it in his driveway. He figured that the fastest way to charge the battery would be to keep the engine running at a high rpm. To do this he put a brick on the gas pedal, which would rev the engine up to its redline limits. He left it like that to take a shower. When he returned 20 minutes later, the overheated engine had seized and oil was spewing. The car was totaled, all while sitting in the driveway.
