For big hills, it works nicely for manual trans cars so inexperienced drivers don't roll backward if they can get the technique down. Also helps experienced drivers start off smoother on those steep hills.

    Here is the pic I was talking about

    I plan on cleaning them up, spray some paint on them and throw on a new e- brake shoe for the 8.8 rear.

    Confused by your post #18. The parking brake is on both rear wheels. If not, someone took it off the missing side.

    Not the end, the thing that holds the cable to the housing.
