Man, I did this years ago, so I can sympathize. I was underneath the Regal, with a crowbar (yes, the full metal kind, no plastic handle), and I think I was trying to either put a trans back in, or take one out.. can't remember. All I remember some 15 years later now, was the bar slipping, smacking me right below my left eye. I crawled out from under the car, pouring blood out, and grabbed a clean shop towel and held it there. I woke up passed out on the porch, with the towel soaked in blood, and got it on my shirt, hands, pants... but the bleeding had stopped. I went inside to see how bad it was, and remember my dad asking if I was ok. Being the stubborn kid, I told him I was fine, and never did let on about what happened. Never went to get stitches, although I should have. There is a tiny bit of a scar still there 15 or so years later. An inch higher, and I might have lost an eye!
