Taxi Driver Breaks Transmission, Drives in Reverse . . . For 11 Years

(Video Link)

Harpeet Devi of Bhathinda, Punjab, India is a cab driver. In 2003, his taxi broke down and he could drive only in reverse. He made it back home in that condition, but couldn't afford to fix it. He tells Barcroft Media that he kept driving anyway. Devi had to acquire special permission from the state government, but he remains in business.

In fact, he's remodeled his service to exploit his local fame. Devi's taxi is decorated to reflect its uniqueness. To make it safer to drive, it has headlights on the rear and plays an ambulance siren.

Funny. Reminds me of the time a transmission seal in my '55 Chevy broke and I had to drive in reverse up any hills to get my car fixed. Good thing I had money for the repair.
