And the cars with power brakes in the '60's were so touchy you could do a fast stop with your pinky pushing on the pedal.
Very true.
I had a 4 door 67 Bonneville fully loaded back in the early 70's and it was just like that. That big ol beast used to stop on a dime if you didnt skid. I still miss that beast believe it or not. Was a living room on wheels and sometimes a bedroom too... 馃槈

I had a '65 Bonnie, white with a red interior. My first car with a/c.

Coming home from OKC last and went to exit and press my brake and they weren鈥檛 responding. They felt super hard and i started just pressing them because I immediately started to panic. Luckily my exit was an incline and there was nobody behind or in front of me so it caused the car to slow naturally to where i could go to the ditch. Talk about scary! My car once in the ditch just turned off. So i started it again because it鈥檚 freezing here and when the tow truck driver came i tried to turn my car off and it wouldn鈥檛 shut off. Then i again tried to start it and it then wouldn鈥檛 start! Up until this exact moment nothing has been wrong. No warning signs on my dash etc! So then i googled this make and model and year and OMG this is a common thing! This scares me because I have kids. The last thing I need is to not be able to break going 70mph!!! It was towed today to a mechanic and is under warranty but i鈥檓 extremely stressed about keeping this car! Should I trade it in? does this continue to happen? I don鈥檛 know what to do and apparently GMC has zero recalls for this issue even though they鈥檝e been aware of ALL the complaints!!!!
This just happened to mine. Same exact circumstance. Was on the hwy went to get off and my brakes were hard to press down. The vacuum pump broke and parts went into my engine. Still don't understand why it won't start. Hoping it didn't damage to much.

Haven't heard from @Bracken95 in nearly 3 months now (since the original post). Hope she/they are OK ...
