Hold your breath....this will sting a bit.

So, I was driving to get a new cell phone on Friday and while getting on the on ramp of the highway, I had to pull some very evasive moves to dodge another you can see, things did not work out in my favor. Flipped the car and ended up on the concrete canal. I am so thankful to have walked away with only some busted ribs and fingers.... and a broken heart of course.
The question now is do I go against my wife's wishes and get another ZL1?? She is not pleased with the idea, though I told her it was not the cars fault, but simply the fact that I could not manage to navigate the power in the grass and dirt on a downhill. What to do.....

That sucks bro. Glad you are okay.

Reach down grab your balls and get what YOU want.

Hell my wife wanted me to get some economy car. I almost came home with a ZL1 but I was more comfortable with the 1LE payments.

So you flipped the car, walked away with small injuries. I think your wife would want you back in another Camaro knowing it can save lives in an accident. At least you can try in use that in your argument.

Hate that happened to you. Glad you're able to type about it.
