So you found that song recorded about twenty years ago by Da Yoopers, one of our local bands...

Wow, makes me really glad I don't live in the Rust Belt! There was one Winter where the passenger door latch on my old VW beetle would freeze up and stop working. Every time I made a left turn, the door would fly open. I eventually tied a rope to the door handle.

A buddy of mine sang this song by Da Yoopers at his office Christmas party. He borrowed my Corsa steering wheel (I have a Grant wood wheel on it now) as a prop - what a hoot!

This is a common occurrence each winter for us. It really doesn't matter which brand of car either. When just above freezing rain hits and then the temperature drops, you can bet the car doors will take a great deal of effort to just get open.

Then the latch is frozen. It usually takes about three miles of driving after warmup to get the latches to stay closed.

It's either hold the door shut manually, or use a rope or bungee. Not fun.
