Oh that's f-ing sweet! Not much of an overhang though, they might want to consider having it rebuilt by another company...

Man I got one for ya... I had never driven a manual transmission before and my friend told me to get in the drivers seat of his car and said he would show me how once we left the gas station... So I hop in and he promises me it's in neutral and says just to let the clutch out. It was in gear, he starts laughing his ass off and I had no freaking clue what to do (I was about 13) so we go from the pump straight into a cage full of propane bottles! Got lucky, right? So he opens his door and looks at his car, gets back in and still insists that I drive. He puts it in reverse for me and I let the clutch out (prepared this time).. Only the dumbass had left his door open and there was a pole in front of a phonebooth that caught it and bent it completely back against the hood of the car. I thought we were gonna die laughing! He didn't want me to drive anymore though..

Ok, one night I pull up to a gas station, then realize its closed. I'm in a town I'm not too familuar with, and the street is one of those with a small divider between the lanes, and way too complicated of a system of stop light. There is an open gas station right next to the one I'm at, but I would have either go against the flow of non existent traffic to get to it, or risk going around who knows how many blocks (there was also a drainage channel in all this, and some bridges). So I figure I'd cut right across the grassy area separating the two gas stations. Its only 15 feet, so I figure I can get over there before some cop spots me.
I drive across, and a sudden grinding sound wipes my self satisfied smile right off my face. Turns out there was a rock, roughly the size of a bike on its side, in the middle of the grassy area. How I managed to not see it, is beyond me. It right the right height so that the engine and tranny can clear it, but not the frame rails underneath the bed. So I'm am hopelessly high centered on it, with one of the rear wheels in the air.
So I had to call a buddy, get some straps to pull my truck off, tear the straps, get new straps, then finally get my truck unstuck.
And still not a single cop.
