His buddy in a 2wd chevy pickup hooked to the front of the bronco and tried to pull the whole mess out. He wasn't going anywhere. Eventually, a guy in a dmax came and pulled everyone out of the way. #coolstorybro

I don't know if that ramp is still open in Forestville, but it had a steeeeeep hill just about a hundred feet from the ramp. The guy that had the house right next to the ramp used to make extra bucks towing people up the hill with his tractor

131 SB just before Pearl St exit in GR - there was a super single with hub, brake drum, and most of the axle shaft still attached just hanging out on the shoulder. Must be the cement barrier fought back and won.

I got a ride in one of them Amphicars when I had my van in the Fleetwood Farm show in Canada.

There was a pond that they had 4 or 5 cars giving people rides through the water, It's kinda weird just driving right into the water like that.


And no, they are not fast. Not at all.
