I said I would drive this car in to the ground, and it looks as if I have done just that.
Be afraid of Semi's!
I was pretty much attacked by one the other day, and as you can see, I lost the battle. While cruising down the expressway at 70 MPH, I got caught in the "draft" of a semi truck - a gust of wind that sent my car flying away from the truck and then pulled me right back in and slammed me in to his back bumper - thankfully I was at his back bumper and not underneathe his truck! (I am also lucky not to have been smashed by the other cars cruising my way at 70 MPH as my car was spinning across the expressway.)
The Semi driver seemed very familiar with the situation on hand and acted as if it was fairly common.
My car has been paid off for quite some time now, and I was enjoying the freedom of no car payment -I was like a rich person!! BUT, needless to say - it looks as if I will be purchasing another car and paying for it over a span of 3 or 4 or 5 years. great :) !!
