It was a beautiful 70 degree Friday .. sunny, super blue sky with lots of gorgeous clouds. I mean .. what could go wrong? I was getting a chance to drive my dream car again and I was hitting the highway. Perfect Friday.
About 30 minutes into my mini road trip, she broke. Not like car died broke, but a huge piece from underneath of her came loose and was dragging on the ground broke. It was a little scary.
For a highway breakdown, it wasn’t so bad. I got off the road pretty quickly, had help on the phone immediately, and within five minutes had Steve (pictured above upper left) - a mechanic - who pulled over to help. See .. there are really good people out there.
I also ended up having a pretty awesome tow truck driver, David, who grew up on a horse farm. You meet all kinds of interesting people when you least expect it.
Hopefully I’ll get a chance next week to take this baby out again. My fingers are crossed for breakdown and tow-free trip this time.
