It is actually a pretty lame story. I woke up saturday morning and realized I did not have any milk. So I left my house, still half asleep so I was not rodding on it at all. I had my cruise set at 45 mph which is the speed limit in town, I live right in town. About a mile and a half down the road the car lunged really hard. It sounded like the engine had no oil at all. About three seconds later the noise stopped, the engine died and locked up, and I coasted about half a mile to the next road where I pulled over and waited about an hour for a tow truck, (thank god for triple a) and towed it back to my house. The end.
