Saab Story

It takes 8,460 bolts to assemble an automobile, and one nut to scatter it all over the road. ~Author unknown

A young man decided to take a drive one weekend to visit a friend, so off to New Jersey he went. He had named his car "The Silver Bullet". It was an old and tired car, that made many trips to and from Pennsylvania. Despite this, the young man loved his car as his car had been quite good to him.

The young man headed up to New Jersey and cast his worries aside. On the way up, his car began to over heat just past Baltimore on I-95. So the young man got off at the closest exit, which happened to be a five lane road and upon entering the road in the furthest turning lane the Silver Bullet died. But thankfully there was AAA, and they sent a flat bed tow truck.

(This is where you think, or at least I thought the story ends...but no)

As the car was being pulled up onto the bed of the truck, the young man heard an ungodly snap. Just as this happened, the Silver Bullet begins to roll off the truck at a pretty good clip. Does the Silver Bullet stop at the end? No. The kind old car proceeds to continue to roll into three lanes of traffic slamming into the trailer of a semi, spins a little then finally stops.

The young man nearly dies of embarrassment although thankful that no one was injured. He is now looking forward to driving a rental car provided by AAA and purchasing a new Passat.

My condolences to you after the death of the Silver Bullet.
