When I have a car on a ramp, I always pull another vehicle behind it till the bumpers almost touch, that away I know it can't roll

Re: Almost died

wow glad you came out of that one. always be extra careful lifting a car whether its ramps, stands, etc. and as mentioned, NEVER trust your e-brake when its your life under the car.
