A woman in my hometown had a XR7 Cougar back in the early 90s and threw a rod, it went through the dash and missed hitting her in the head by a matter of inches, she won a lawsuit over that ordeal

That was the cool part Dan. At first I didn't see the gouges in the cylinder and looked in, smiled and thought..."That'll cause zero compression lol"

I figured it had a hole, was chipped brutally...completely missing made me chuckle.
