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

The people who don’t understand, they say things like, “It’s just a car,” “Just buy a new one,” or “Why are you doing this to yourself?” They don’t get that cars aren’t just useless hunks of metal. They’re also teachers, man.
