We love our cars. As much as we like to think that they’ll be there for us forever, sometimes that just isn’t the case.

Last week, I asked you for your saddest “stuck on the side of the road” stories. Some were truly terrible and nightmarish. But some had happy endings! I suppose it’s all about perspective.

I’m sure at the time, it was terrible being in these situations. But now you can laugh about them over a beer. Or a glass of wine. Or whatever.
