You ever see the Macguyver episode where he makes a ski out of a piece of wood to replace the busted wheel on an airplane??? It was pretty much just like that. Ryan's driving skills saved my life....

Just so glad that you are OK!

H.A.M.B. heroes to the rescue. I got to meet Doc at the LSRU. What a class act! And this isn't the 1st time he has gone out of his way to help people.

Can you have ANYTHING longer than a few days before you either modify it, destroy it or sell it? Come by and see me (and you future daughter-in-law) sometime.

Ryan ... glad you & Joyo are OK.

I know it's of little consequence ... but cars can be fixed ... sometimes people can’t (I sat in traffic for 2 hours tonight due to a double fatality accident).

Many, many years ago, my father had a similar experience in the coupe … it was quite a wild ride … but like you, somehow he escaped running into something ... or getting hit by another car.

He was en route to the '74 NSRA Nats in St. Paul ... broke a rear axle on Hwy 80 near Sacramento (less than 100 miles from home):


NOTE: You can see more pics of the "wreck" by clicking HERE.

Like you, a fellow rodder came to the rescue with a trailer ... and we were able to continue our trip to the Nats (albeit without the Hot Rod) ... Two months later, the coupe was "as good as new" again.

Hang in there! ... and try to enjoy yourself at Hot Rod Cinematic.

1. Bad things can happen to anyone
2. Even when you think it all sux, theres always a positive to come from the experience, and make you re-evaluate the things in your life that matter. Props to all involved in pointing you back in the right direction, something we can all learn from.

Cheers,

Drewfus
