Sounds like you need to take a look up around the linkage near firewall to see why the shift linkage binds with the emerg brake cable. Maybe something flew up in there and got wedged. As for the ignition...definately demonic possession...;-)

: Lily, my '70 Caddy-Superior, is givin' me trouble....weird, freaky, posessed-by-demons trouble!

: For a while now I've been unable to get my parkin' brake to engage when I put 'er in park. It'll only engage in neutral, then I can put 'er in park with the parkin' brake still on.

: Then my backup lights won't stay on in reverse. Oh sure, they'll flash when I put 'er in reverse but they won't stay on.

: Now (15 minutes ago when I got home) she wouldn't shut off! The ignition would turn to the correct postion an' I could remove the key, but she jus' kept on runnin'! I tried over an' over to shut 'er off but to no avail. I put 'er in gear over an' over an she finally shut off. I decided to tempt fate an' started her up an' she shut right off....thankfully!

: Now I'm askin: Has anyone any idea what the hell is goin' on? I'm a mechanical moron, but I'm teachable. I'm thinkin' all these problems are related, but I'm damned if I know how or what to do 'bout it. Not only do I not know what to do, but I don't know how to shut 'er off if she does it again!

: If any o' you gearheads an' wiz kids can help me out, it'd surely be appreciated!

: Thanx,
