CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.  

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.
