Yeah. I thought about that while I was posting. I was hoping no one would call me out on it.

On my way home from work i was stopped at a light and a guy tried to squeeze by in a suburban in the right turn lane. He hit my mirror hard with his. I followed him into a neighborhood to make sure nothing broke. His housing was all cracked and the glass was about to fall off and mine had a tiny scratch. He apologized and i came home

Yay!. Atlest it isnt -10 and blowing snow

I have seen that a few times, the scariest was on a very large dump truck......

We had a guy drive his car in for an issue with the front end. Put it on the lift only to find the tie rod was broken, yes BROKEN, not lose. He DROVE it in with a broken tie rod.

I would figure as soon as you turned or hit a big enough bump, your ride would be over. How did that work?

Apparently a lot of luck. I guess the wheel is mounted in a way that it follows the other side in a way that you can move the car.... lol
