    A Graduate of the James Pio Driving School

    I am having a real bad month.

    I'm starting to think somebody is trying to kill me. I am advising people stay at least twenty away from me. So far who ever it is is 0 for 2. Thanks dog for my wife (who woke me up before the fire), and German safety engineering. Props to CalTrans and breakaway light poles.

    Not sure what happened yet, something in the rear suspense broke and the car hooked hard right like my golf swing. Absolutely no control, I was on a Nantuket sleigh off the freeway through the light pole and into the bushes. Slope is a lot steeper then it looks, and getting out of the smoking car was interesting. Another driver stopped and pulled away enough branches for me to climb out the upside. Walked away with a few bruises, but am a bit stiff this morning.

    Not even my car...bummer.

    My daughter asked what ancient Indian burial did I desecrate recently?

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    G-suss man!
    Glad you are OK.
    Better take an accounting of lives used/left.

    If you are superstitious and believe that things come in three's (haha, Funky beet me to it), I'm hoping you've also had a paper cut this week so you can put a bow on this current trend and call it good.

    Yikes. Glad you're ok.

    Looks like someone forgot to do something when bolting back the rear LC arm. Always use new bolts and nuts folks.

    and don't mix tires.

    Geez man, glad you’re safe.

    However, I think “graduate” of the James Pio School of Driving May be a little premature. You’re not fully inverted.

    It’s a strong effort though so let’s see if the Dean lets you slide by with a C.

    True. Pio flipped his with 4 fully functional control arms. Extra points to Pio.

    lolz. True is that but the one thing I do worry about on my old Subaru is a rear control arm pulling out of the rear subframe because it is a known rust item...thus I inspect it and all the contact points regularly and so far it is super solid.

    Hutash I don't mean to be selfish but my dog is getting old and I will probably need some more advice at some point so be careful! What an incredible series of events. Stay strong.
