I once had a car with an extra gas pedal on the left, and a regular stick shift but auto-clutch instead of a clutch pedal. (It had belonged to someone who couldn't use his right leg but didn't want a fully automatic.)
Much fun was to be had handing it over to valets, car washes or even car mechanics.
"Don't try to use the clutch; it doesn't have one" was usually ignored, because I could hear high rev and swearing every time, and sometimes even a kangaroo jump, before it crawled off at 1 mph by a now very cautious driver.

Then there's the car where the gas pedal broke off, and for a while I drove it with a double length of twine. I said giddyap a lot when driving it. I never handed that over to anyone, though.
