This example creates a new function called getVehicleOriginalProperty, which simulates the previous syntax of this function.

function getVehicleOriginalProperty( element, property )
    if isElement ( element ) and getElementType ( element ) == "vehicle" and type ( property ) == "string" then -- Make sure there's a valid vehicle and a property string
        local modelID = getElementModel ( element )
        local handlingTable = getOriginalHandling ( modelID ) -- Get the handling as table and save as handlingTable
        local value = handlingTable[property] -- Get the value from the table
        
        if value then -- If there's a value (valid property)
            return value -- Return it
        end
    end
    
    return false -- Not an element, not a vehicle or no valid property string. Return failure
end
