Saw my truck from a whole new perspective..........

Yep.   Really miserable weather today....we were not expecting snow.   And the roads were pretty slick.

ya ya, everything is fine!  sorry for the delay!    the truck didn't leak a drop of any of it's precious fluids.   kinda lame that this happened 2 days after i put a new clutch/pressure plate/slave cylinder in it.  lol....i'm so glad it isn't broken!  whew!

um...SITREP.   cracked the headlight housing...caved in the fender....crushed the side view mirror....and suffered a fair amount of dents/scratches all along the side of it.  no broken windows, which i find amazing.....considering i was standing on my window while i climbed out of the passenger side window.  =P   overall....pretty lucky i think.


you should have seen it....i was holding an epic powerslide after a sudden loss of control.....steering wheel at full lock.  THEN suddenly got a LOT of traction....violently swinging the rear of the truck the other direction, and i couldn't turn the wheel fast enough to correct it, and stuffed it into the embankment while still spinning 180 degrees.  how it fell onto the driver side...i don't know.  /shrug.


i called a buddy to bring a 4x4 and a chain....some police blocked off the road....and we yanked her over.   piece of cake.

I still have this stupid truck.  =P    Tried to sell it.  Had it on ebay for a month.  No dice.  Gonna get it inspected and drive it on it's door handles for the winter I guess, then see what happens in the spring.
