Oh yeah before i forget

A week or so ago I was drivin home (on I25) and witnessed a fire truck and police car in the middle lane of the highway. I expected a crash of some sort, well as i drove past I noticed a hd chevy with a big horse trailer and both front wheels had so much negative camber (top of wheels close together, correct me if Im wrong) it looked like it was ready for a hard core figure 8 race! I immediatly started laughing as I realized there was a good sized little bump before where the truck had stopped. Im assuming it bounced a little and the IFS of the chevy bent so bad it dropped the truck on the oil pan!! I felt sorta bad for the guy though because he looked like just an old cowboy, probably teaches him what not to buy for towin heavy stuff

that would suck, i saw a brand new lifted chevy out here in california at the pismo dunes (still had paper plates on the truck) try to go race up a dune and hit a few woops just before the climb, caught a little air and looked exactly the same. no load, jus the truck. i laughed for months about that. felt bad for him explaining that one. i owned a little 4 banger toyota tacoma at the time and thought about going and helping him pull that thing out, how funny would that have been...
