Driving my 54 chevy back in high school out to a place in the county called Highland springs. Pretty curvy back roads with some straight aways. Was doing about 60 miles an hour when my lights went out!! HOLY CRAP!!! I slammed on the breaks and tried to stay in the road, on one side of the road was a mountain, the other side a ditch about 20 feet down from the road!! skidded for what seemed like forever and finally stopped about 2 feet from a big oak tree at the right side of the roadway. I have never been that scared in my life driving a machine. AND to this day when I drive back out there when its dark, I drive pretty damn slow!!!
