If you've ever had an old vehicle get away from you, be it due to a stuck throttle or failing brakes, you know just how exciting the moment of realization that accompanies limited control can be. In our not-inconsiderable experience in this area, the mind clicks from denial to acceptance in a heartbeat before allowing you to come up with a solution. A group of old-metal-obsessed Hungarians have taken the time to craft a video detailing exactly what happens when a 1981 BMW 3 Series decides to get up and go all on its own.

The result is plenty of gravel-slinging E21 action in glorious slow-motion. The whole clip is well-shot, if not a little anti-climactic. We're just glad no BMWs were harmed in the filming. Hit the jump to check out the brief video for yourself.

      These were fun, tossable little cars. The 4-cylinder models had manual steering, which provided great feedback of road conditions, unlike the numb power-assisted cars today. Some of the 323 6-cyl. models may have had power steering is certain markets. The USA model 320i had 105 hp, which today seems low, but they had nice performance and were fun to drive..

      How did I know there was going to be dub step music in this video before it played? When will the fad end.

      It reminded me of the Robin Williams in Awakenings back in 1990. The patients came back to life for a short period of time and then at the end they fell back into their catatonic state.
